IHK HCBA expresses concern over Qazi Yasir’s condition

Srinagar, June 23, 2013 (PPI-OT): The High Court Bar Association of occupied Kashmir has expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health of illegally detained religious scholar, Qazi Yasir, who recently suffered a heart stroke at Sadder Police Station in Islamabad.

The Bar Association in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the Indian police had detained Qazi Yasir for past two weeks without any reason. It also condemned the authorities for placing pro-freedom leaders under constant detention.

The Bar Association expressed serious apprehensions about the life of the Qazi Yasir in view of earlier secret execution of Muhammad Afzal Guru by India. It said that the attitude of the police officials towards the detainee had been totally inhuman and unlawful.

The Bar Association warned that the Indian government and its puppet authorities in occupied Kashmir would be responsible if anything untoward happened to Qazi Yasir.

It appealed to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, the Amnesty International and other human rights bodies to come forward and help in release of the detained scholar.

The Bar Association also supported and endorsed the strike call given by the pro-freedom leaders on the Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh’s visit to the territory on Tuesday.
