ISLAMABAD:    Jammu Kashmir National Front has expressed serious concern over the inhuman treatment meted out to the Kashmiri political prisoners in different jails of the State and outside.

The harassment and inhumane treatment to the detainees belonging to Kashmir valley should be stopped forthwith; The National Front spokesman said in a statement and added that civilized world does not allow targeting the prisoners psychologically. This targeting includes prolonging the imprisonment of political prisoners by using different methods as well. Kashmiri political prisoners lodged in different jails of the State and outside, are mostly going through endless trails. It is the right of every political prisoner, including National Front chairman, Nayeem Khan, lodged in Tihar jail, Delhi to be transferred to nearer jails so that their nears and dears can meet them easily. There is also a Supreme Court direction about it but it is unfortunate that Indian authorities themselves violate the directions of its own Supreme Court. There are reports that Jail authorities of different jails in the State and outside harass the Kashmiri prisoners in every possible way. So these Kashmiri political prisoners are facing many hardships like indecent approach of authorities, long and unending judicial process and unfavorable climatic conditions at a time.

Meanwhile, National Front spokesman has paid tributes to renowned journalist Syed Shujaat Bukhari on his first anniversary and prayed for his forgiveness and highest place in Jannah.
