Syed Ali Gilani’s residence turned into sub-jail: APHC

ISLAMABAD, Oct 1 (APP): The All Parties Hurriyet Conference has said that the puppet authorities have turned the residence of its Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, into a sub-jail, snapping all communication lines in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

According to KMS, the APHC in a statement in Srinagar denounced the unethical and undemocratic actions of the puppet regime, especially cordoning off of the office-cum-residence of Syed Ali Gilani, ransacking and destroying of fruits in orchards, burning of paddy heaps and widespread arrests.

It said that the balloon of ‘battle of Ideas’ by the puppet ruler had been punctured since long.

The APHC said that Syed Ali Gilani had been confined in the four walls of his house since 2010 and all his social and political activities had been curbed and he had not been allowed to participate in the functions of any of his family members especially marriage ceremony of his four grandchildren recently and even on Fridays and Eid occasion he was not allowed to offer prayers.

“Hyderpora residence of Syed Ali Gilani has already been converted into a sub-jail, but since September 21, 2016, the cordon and restrictions have been reinforced by deploying
a contingent of CRPF in a mobile bunker fitted with an automatic snipers and cameras, which keeps the record of everybody coming and visiting him,” the statement said.

“By snapping the communication, not permitting any visitors, even the family members and their kids have to ask higher authorities to go inside their own house, round the clock vigil by armed police and CRPF has created a fearful and terrifying environment,” it said.

The statement said these tactics were part of well-thought policy of the occupation authorities to keep Syed Ali Gilani away from masses.

It said that such cowardly actions had not yielded anything in the past and would not do any better today as well and they would not be able to suppress the Kashmiris’ passion of freedom.

The APHC appealed to people that in view of the gag on the communication and sealing of its office/residence, it was very hard for the Hurriyet leadership to get to anybody.

“Therefore people should continue the struggle with courage, steadfastness, unity and sincerity,” it added.
