‘Kashmir News Trust’ #KNT
: Former legislator and Peoples Conference leader Nizamuddin Bhat Friday appealed to the Union Home Minister and LG Administration of Jammu and Kashmir to release the arrested prominent clerics of the Valley.
Bhat, in a statement also pitched the release of other detenues languishing in different jails across India after the abrogation of Article 370.
He said that most of the families of detenues back home are suffering from economic and psychological distress and he expected compassion from the executive keeping in the precedent of a welfare state.
“Jammu and Kashmir has been witness to various problems and makes a special case for a just and liberal view in respect of people influenced by political discourses. In past a reconciliatory approach had been adopted which helped build a constituency of confidence, trust, and belief in the accommodative system,” he said.
He said the past practices of amnesty and compassion could be continued to give further confidence to people to live in peace, and harmony and play a participatory role in rebuilding trust.
Bhat sought the intervention of the National Human Rights Commission on cases of the excessive hunt of youth, which he said has caused helplessness and may erode people’s faith in the system.
Pertinently, the government on unknown charges arrested top clerics from Kashmir including Mushtaq Veer, Madni, Abdul Rasheed Dawoodi, and others. (KNT)
