Shifting Kashmiri prisoners to Jammu poses risk to their lives :Mehmood Saghar

Islamabad February  22 : Voicing his serious concern over the authorities’ move to shift Kashmiri prisoners to Jammu, the vice president of Democratic Freedom Party and former convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (Pak chapter) Mehmood Ahmed Saghar has termed it as a “deliberate attempt to penalize them further." Shifting political prisoners and lifers from Srinagar central jail to outside jails reflects government authorities’ bias and prejudice against Kashmiris”, Saghar said in a statement issued here on Thursday. “The move is a pressure tactic aimed at inflicting miseries to pro-freedom activist and their families. Indian authorities were using all its oppressive measures to suppress the voice of dissent in Kashmir,”hah and all other political prisoners. he said.

 

PICTURE IN FOCUS

August 23 2017: Shabir Ahmed Shah attacked in Patiala Court lockup by criminals

 

Referring to incidents of thrashing of Kashmiri inmates in Tihar jail, Saghar said that “notwithstanding the constant threats meted out to Kashmiri prisoners the Indian authorities seem hell bent on to shift political prisoners from central jail Srinagar to Jammu. This tantamount to putting their lives at serious risk." The notorious Kotbalwal, Kathua and Tihar Jails have become death traps for Kashmiris”, he said adding that “ruthless thrashing of Kashmiri prisoner by jail authorities and life threat to the DFP chairman Shabir Ahmed Shah in Tihar jail speak volumes about the vulnerable situation Kashmiri prisoners were going through." Terming it as a “deliberate attempt to play with the lives of Kashmiris,” the DFP leader said, “It is a clear manifestation of Indian authorities’ deep-rooted bias and prejudice against Kashmiris”,Voicing his concern over the plight of Kashmiri prisoners languishing in different jails outside the state he said that the international human rights organizations must come forward and pressurize the government of India to ensure safety and security of Shabir Ahmed S

Rape victims from Kunan Poshpora to Shopian want justice: JKDFP

Srinagar February 21 ; Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has expressed concern over the fact that mass rape victims of Kunan Poshpora are continuously denied justice on the institutional level and the culprit army soldiers are rooming free even after 27 years of the shame incident. The party said that had the criminals of Kunan Poshpora been brought to book, the criminal elements would have not gathered courage to raise tri-color in favour of rapists in Kathua. Describing the Kunan Poshpora mass rape incident as a proof of war crimes committed by Indian forces in Jammu Kashmir, JKDFP secretary general, Molana Mohammad Abdullah Tari asked international bodies to probe it so that the culprits are penalized and justice is done. The Kunan Poshpora incident occurred on February 23, 1991, when units of Indian occupational forces raped scores of women in the garb of search operation.Molana Tari said that the Human Rights organizations including Human Rights Watch have reported that the number of raped women could be as high as 100.Moulana Tari said that the J&K High Court has stayed re-investigation in the incident which speaks volumes about the justice denial mood of the government institutions. Even after 27 years of the inhuman and beastly act in Kunan-Poshpora, the involved army officer or personnel have not been brought to book. This case is deliberately hushed up and the successive state regimes have played a criminal role in this regard as till date they never made any sincere attempt against the culprits. He said that India has been using rape as a war weapon against the freedom loving Kashmiris and irony is that New Delhi is successfully deceiving international brethren about the facts in Kashmir. It has become possible only because of the criminal role of the pro-India politicians of Kashmir who act as collaborators. Molana Tari appealed the local Human rights organizations to raise the issue more vibrantly so that rape victims from Kunan Poshpora to Shopian could get justice.

Nadeem Khateeb belonged to Chanab valley. His family has the distinction of always supporting the cause of people’s Right to Self Determination because of which it constantly suffered victimization. After pursuing his education from Tyndale Biscoe School, Srinagar along with some pioneers of the ongoing movement, including Shaheed Ashfaq Majid Wani, Shaheed Nadeem left Kashmir and joined a flying school in Georgia, US. After obtaining his flying license, he was taken as Flying Instructor in the same flying school.

65 year old man’s killing result of brutal occupation: JKDFP 

Srinagar February 19 : Terming the killing of 65 year old person, Syed Habib-ullah of Soibug, Budgam at the hands of Indian forces the result of brutal occupation; Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has said that heavy militarization has made Kashmir a place where living has become very difficult. This was stated by a JKDFP delegation led by Engineer Farooq Khan who visited Soibug to exhibit solidarity with the bereaved family of late Syed Habib-ullah. While terming the killing of Syed Habib-ullah as inhuman, the JKDFP delegation said that there can be no worse a concept of human rights violation than his killing. The Indian forces have been provided license to kill each and every Kashmiri whenever they like, the delegation said. Irony is that human rights activists and defenders in New Delhi are mere spectators to the plight faced by innocent freedom loving Kashmiri people. The silence of Indian media is also criminal which is defending the atrocious acts of Indian forces in Kashmir. While strongly denouncing this dastardly act of killing Syed Habib-ullah by trigger happy Indian forces, JKDFP expressed sympathy with the bereaved family.

He said that jailing political leaders like Shabir Ahmed Shah had yielded nothing in the past and it was sure to prove failure even in future. He said curbs and restrictions on the movement of Hurriyat leaders and activists every now and then speak volumes about the frustration of the puppet authorities.

If disputes are to be resolved animosity has to be shun : Molana Tari

Srinagar February 15:The secretary general of Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) Molana Muhammad Abdullah Tari again reiterated that resolution of long pending Kashmir dispute is imperative to end the hostilities between Indian and Pakistan and ensure the stability of South Asian region. Molana Tari said in a statement that Party’s incarcerated chief Shabir Ahmad Shah has been advocating throughout his political career that if disputes are to be resolved animosity has to be shun. “Hostility has to be avoided if New Delhi is interested in resolving the dispute,” Molana Tari said adding “that will create an atmosphere to start a purposeful dialogue to resolve the dispute.” He stressed that Kashmiri people are peace loving and the stability of the whole subcontinent is linked to peace in Kashmir .JKDFP secretary general impressed upon New Delhi to change its stance vis-à-vis Kashmir so that an atmosphere is created which can lead to prosperity. He said that jailing political leaders like Shabir Ahmad Shah has yielded nothing in past and it is sure to prove a failure even today.

He was immediately shifted to Srinagar Central jail. Bulla’s woes did not end in the jail as well. The torture continued and Bulla fell seriously ill.

Referring to JKLF co-founder Muhammad Maqbool Bhat the DFP leaders said that it was no secret that his trial was also shrouded in controversy. He said that both the cases have amply exposed Indian judiciary’s partiality and prejudice against Kashmiri people.

He expressed the optimism that Pakistan will continue to raise voice for Kashmiris at all national, regional and international forums.

JKDFP organizes function at Sopore, Shaheed Guru, Shaheed Bhat remembered 

Srinagar February 8: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) today organized a function at Sopore in Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru’s ancestral home to exhibit solidarity with the family and to remember Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru and Shaheed Mohammad Maqbool Bhat on their martyrdom anniversaries. The party said that those who laid down their lives for the sacred cause of freedom are the real national and Milli heroes of Kashmiri people. The Freedom Party delegation which participated in the function despite strict government restrictions at the residence of Shaheed Afzal Guru was led by Engineer Farooq also included Peer Anayatullah, Mohammad Amin, Rameez Ahmad, Ashiq Hussein and Ghulam Mohammad Muqdam. The delegation members while deliberating paid rich and glowing tributes to Shaheed Afzal Guru on his fifth martyrdom anniversary. The JKDFP delegation members while addressing the present gathering at Boabgah, Sopore said that Shaheed Afzal Guru was hanged secretly only, “to satisfy the collective conscience of India” hence dishonoring the principles of humanity and justice. The delegation members said that JKDFP chief, Shabir Ahmad Shah is currently imprisoned in the same infamous Tihar jail for advocating the just cause of martyrs where Shaheed Afzal Guru and Shaheed Maqbool Bhat were hanged and buried. This has proved beyond doubt that Kashmiri people have not given up their political demand rather it has become more and more vibrant after the sacrifices of Shaheed Guru and Shaheed Bhat. India has been killing our freedom loving brethren ever since 1947 but New Delhi crossed all moral limits when it jailed even the remains of Shaheed Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru in Tihar .We stress upon the justice loving people and organizations of the world to help the families of Shaheed Guru and Shaheed Bhat to attain the remains of their martyrs, JKDFP delegation members said. We will never give up our demand that the remains of our beloved martyrs should be handed over to us, they added. Shaheed Guru and Shaheed Bhat laid down their lives for the cause of freedom and they provided us a lesson not to surrender before oppression and suppression. We pledge to take the mission of Shaheed Guru and Shaheed Bhat to its logical conclusion, they said. India martyred Shaheed Guru and Shaheed Bhat to crush the freedom aspiration of Kashmiri people but failed because our struggle got momentum by their precious blood. So it is high time for New Delhi to read writing on the wall and understand that Kashmiris are not going to surrender their just political demand.

Observe shutdown on Feb 9th and 11th : JKDFP.

J&K people have not forgotten their martyrs 
Srinagar February 6 : Terming Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru, Shaheed Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and all the martyrs the national and Milli heroes, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) appealed for complete shutdown on February 9th and 11th to observe the martyrdom anniversaries of Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru and Shaheed Mohammad Maqbool Bhat. Paying rich tributes to Shaheed Guru and Shaheed Bhat on their 5th and 34th martyrdom anniversaries respectively, JKDFP said that these ideological martyrs are the torch bearers of the resistance movement. Shaheed Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru were hanged and buried in the infamous Tihar jail Delhi in 1984 and 2013 respectively. Pertinently, JKDFP chief, Shabir Ahmad Shah is currently imprisoned in the same jail for advocating the just cause of martyrs. India has been killing our freedom loving brethren ever since 1947 but New Delhi crossed all moral limits when it jailed even the remains of Shaheed Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and Shaheed Mohammad Afzal Guru in Tihar. “We appeal to the justice loving people and organizations of the world to help the families of Shaheed Bhat and Shaheed Guru to attain the remains of their martyrs,” JKDFP said in a statement adding “we will never give up our demand that the remains of our beloved martyrs should be handed over to us.”Shaheed Maqbool Bhat and Shaheed Afzal Guru laid down their lives for the cause of freedom and they provided us a lesson not to surrender before oppression and suppression. “We pledge to take the mission of Shaheed Guru and Shaheed Bhat to its logical conclusion,” JKDFP said. India martyred Shaheed Bhat to crush the freedom aspiration of Kashmiri people but failed because after the martyrdom of Shaheed Bhat our struggle got momentum by his precious blood. Five years before India murdered Shaheed Guru to “satisfy” its “national conscience” but Kashmiris still demand freedom from India, so New Delhi should read writing on the wall and know once for all that Kashmiris are not going to surrender their just political demand. Paying rich tributes to all the martyrs JKDFP said that people will never ever forget their sacrifices because we are a living nation.

JKDFP thanks Pakistan for observing ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’

Srinagar February 5:Thanking Pakistan for observing Kashmir Solidarity Day, and reiterating its full support to the oppressed Kashmiris, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) today said that Pakistan is the only country which supports Kashmiri people unconditionally .JKDFP in a statement said that party’s incarcerated chief Shabir Ahmad Shah has always appreciated the support of Pakistan towards the freedom struggle of Kashmiri people at diplomatic, political and moral fronts. For the past seven decades, despite difficult and testing times for the country itself, Pakistan is continuously trying its best to advocate the case of oppressed Kashmiris on international forums. The JKDFP tanked the Government of Pakistan and people who have always extended all possible support to the political movement of Jammu Kashmir and for the resolution of Kashmir dispute .The JKDFP said that not only the political rights but religious rights of the people of Kashmir are being curtailed by the use of naked force by Indian forces and their collaborators since last seven decades. In such a situation, Pakistan is the only worldly support for Kashmiri people which raises the human rights issues at relevant quarters and tries to convince the international community to address the Kashmir dispute which has become a nuclear flashpoint and has endangered the peace and stability of the south Asian region. Reiterating the political stance of its ailing and jailed chief, Shabir Shah, the JKDFP said that unless Kashmir dispute is addressed in its historical perspective the ongoing bloodshed will continue. The Kashmiri people are not only attacked and targeted in their homeland but the Indian states only because they want the fulfillment of the promises made to them by India. Even Kashmiri prisoners are denied suitable medical aid in prisons.

Killings, arrests, restrictions cannot resolve Kashmir tangle : Molana Tari

Srinagar February 2 : Terming the heavy miniaturization as the main reason behind the killing of five innocent youths including two minors at the hands of Indian forces in south Kashmir’s Shopian district during last one week, secretary general of Jammu & Kashmir democratic freedom party Molana Muhammad Abdullah Tari has said that stopping people from performing their religious obligations by imposing restrictions has become a norm in the disputed region. Molana Tari said in a statement that first a 17 year old minor, Shakir Ahmad was murdered by Indian forces in Changed village of Shopian where two brave hearts, Firdous Ahmad and Sameer Ahmad were martyred by Indian forces during a gunfight. The people of nearby Ganowpora village were still in mourning and the Indian army fired upon the mourners killing three youths including Javed Ahmad, Suhail Lone and Reyes Ahmad. Two young women were also fired and injured who are battling for their lives. Another minor, 10 years old Musharraf Fayaz, who had sustained injuries at Chaigund encounter site succumbed to his injuries taking the death toll of civilians to five. Molana Tari said that when people decided to raise their voice against this genocide, the administration imposed strict restrictions only to vindicate that Kashmir has practically become a military state where anybody can be killed or arrested at the will of the men in uniform and nobody is allowed to raise his voice in a democratic way. It has also proved that the men in uniform are the real rulers of the disputed territory.This attitude is the result of the rigid and illogic policy of New Delhi towards the Kashmir dispute. The result of such rigidity is nothing but bloodshed. Since Kashmir dispute is political in nature, so it needs political measures to resolve this dispute as per the wishes of the people. Neither killings nor arrests can produce positive results nor can such atrocities change the historical facts about Kashmir. If the dream of peace in the south Asian region is to be fulfilled India must shun the path of inflexibility and come forward with political measures. This has been the basis of DFP incarcerated chief Shabir Shah’s politics as well, Molana Tari said.

Delhi court rejects bail plea of Shabir Shah.

New Delhi, February 01 : A Delhi court has rejected the bail plea of senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Shabir Ahmed Shah, in a false case of money laundering registered against him in 2007.Additional Sessions Judge, Justice Sidharth Sharma, who had in August last year denied the relief to Shabir Shah citing the ongoing probe, dismissed his fresh bail plea.In his bail application filed through Advocate M S Khan, the APHC leader had told the court that investigation into the case was complete as the Indian investigating agency, Enforcement Directorate, had filed its charge sheet and there was no possibility of hampering the probe by him. The court had on 22 August last year rejected Shabir Shah’s earlier bail plea after the ED stated that it was probing the case.

Summoning a woman repeatedly has become intolerable : Molana Tari 

Srinagar February 1:Terming the repeated so called questioning of Dr Bilquees, wife of its incarcerated chairman, Shabir Ahmad Shah at the hands of ED as highly condemnable, the Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has said that continuously summoning a reputed woman has become intolerable now. JKDFP Secretary General, Molana Mohammad Abdullah Tari has asked Indian authorities the reasons behind summoning of Dr Bilquees repeatedly when ED has already submitted a so called charge sheet against Shabir Shah languishing in Tihar jail. Molana Tari said that government is playing delaying tactics just to prolong the illegal detention of Shabir Shah and summoning his wife every now and then is nothing but a policy to hoodwink. Molana Tari strongly condemned the grilling of a woman for hours together at the hands of ED officials. Tari said that when nothing has come out against the senior resistance leader, Shabir Shah ED is upset and in the process has even forgotten moral values. The Indian agency is targeting close relatives of Shabir Shah only to prolong his illegal detention. Asking the same questions again and again proves that ED has nothing against either Shabir Shah or his wife but the Indian agency on the directions of the rulers is hell bent to trouble Shabir Shah and his close relatives. The repeated trauma Dr Bilquees is compelled to pass through is paining not only JKDFP but the whole Kashmiri nation. Instead of issuing bail to Shabir Shah who has been put behind bars for no reasons, Indian authorities are using shameless attempts to somehow prolong his detention. Terming not bailing out the incarcerated leader by court, as unfortunate, Molana Tari said that justice loving people of India should ponder on their judicial system .Meanwhile, Molana Tari has expressed deep grief and sorrow over the passing away of Reyes Ahmad, a Shopian youth who was hit by bullets fired by Indian army on January 27.JKDFP said that on one hand India is hell to put the political leadership behind bars and on the other forces have been given free hand to kill Kashmiri youth. The whole nation is saddened by first murdering of Shakir Mir and then Javed Bhat, Suhail Lone and Reyes Ganai. 

ED officer asks Shabir Shah’s wife all old questions.

New Delhi, January 31 : The Indian Enforcement Directorate (ED) has once again summoned the wife of senior APHC leader, Shabir Ahmed Shah, who is lodged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail for the past several months Shabir Shah’s wife, Dr Bilquees, in a media interview said that she was grilled for seven hours by the ED for questions that she had answered many times earlier. “Today I was made to reply to all those old questions about my job, livelihood, education of my children, bank details, earnings, property, etc,” she added .Dr Bilquees said that she objected to answering questions whose answers she had already given in writing many times, and added that Shabir Shah’s nephew was also questioned for 10-12 hours." Nothing has been found against Shabir Shah till date. It has made the ED officers more frustrated, because of which they also grilled his nephew. And today I was made to reply to all those oldquestions " She added. It is to mention here that the Indian authorities have illegally detained Shabir Ahmed Shah in New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail in a fake case registered against him. A charge-sheet has been filed against him by the ED.

Shabir Shah getting only dates of hearings from Court:JKDFP

Srinagar January 30:Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has strongly condemned the use of delay tactics in issuing a bail to its incarcerated chief Shabir Ahmad Shah in a fabricated case. Shabir Shah’s bail application was not even heard today and the next date was fixed on January 31.JKDFP said that the case against Shabir Shah sahib is not even argued and they issue long dates of new hearings. Once the date comes nearer the case is postponed for no reasons. Terming it a fixed match, the JKDFP said that the Judge left the court room for some time and he conveyed about the next date of hearing through someone there. Terming not bailing out the incarcerated leader by Court, as delaying tactics just to prolong the illegal detention of Shabir Shah, the DFP said that justice loving people of India should ponder on what is going on with Shabir Shah in a Delhi court. During the last hearing of the case which was 10 days back Shabir Shah’s wife had appealed through an application about the deteriorating health conditions of Shah Sb. The jail authorities were ordered by the court to submit the health status report of Shabir Shah but till date nothing has been done so for. Till date not even a single court order regarding the health of Shabir Shah has been honored by the Tihar jail authorities. The ailing leader has not been provided any medical aid despite multiple Court orders. The Tihar jail authorities are hence endangering the life of Shabir Shah.

Mehmood Saghar aghast over civilian killings

Islamabad January 30 : Voicing serious concern over killing of youths by government forces in Kashmir, senior vice president of Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party Mehmood Ahmed Saghar has said that “Kashmir has been turned into hell for its inhabitants." Recent killing spree of youth in south Kashmir has proved it beyond doubt that New Delhi wants to choke every dissenting voice in Kashmir by the dint of force,” Saghar said in a statement. Expressing solidarity and sympathy with the bereaved families of youth who were killed by Army in Shopian, Saghar said “every single bullet fired by Indian army fortifies the resolve of Kashmiris and every drop of blood being shed on the streets of Kashmir nourishes the cause for which hundreds and thousands of Kashmiris have sacrificed their precious lives"." New Delhi must bear in mind the fact that Kashmiris have rendered tremendous sacrifices for achieving right to self determination and they cannot be silenced by bullets and pellets,” he said.

JKDFP lashes out at MLA Ravinder Raina for justifying Shopian killings

·Srinagar January 29:Jammu & Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has lashed out at BJP’s communal MLA, Ravinder Raina for justifying the innocent killings at the hands of Indian army in Shopian.  JKDFP said in a statement that only a sick minded like Ravinder Raina can say “army did the right thing by opening fire”. Raina and company must note that Kashmiri people cannot give up their legitimate political demand because of the statements of communal forces of India. It is better for people like Ravinder Raina to consult any psychiatrist rather than barking in the so called assembly. The DFP said that elements like Ravinder Raina are responsible for the bloodshed at the hands of Indian forces because the men in uniform get encouraged by these goons who get pleasure out of killings of human beings. The JKDFP statement said that Ravinder Rain's mental sickness has in fact exposed the so called rulers who for deceiving common people shed crocodile tears on civilian killings. But the people know that those who shed crocodile tears enjoy power by the support of the elements like Ravinder Riana. The communal elements like Ravinder Raina must remember that Kashmiri people have never forgotten the human values even after facing at the hands of the Indian forces. We stress upon India to exhibit maturity and accept the historical facts about Kashmir dispute and shun the policy of stubbornness so that precious lives are saved.

JKDFP aghast over Shopian innocent killings

Srinagar January 28:The Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has strongly reacted to the killing of two unarmed civilians and injuries to many others in indiscriminate firing by Indian forces at Ganowpora village of Shopian district. Condemning the student’s killings, the secretary general of the DFP, Molana Mohammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement that our young sons are being killed with impunity but no one among international community seems to bother. Praying for the slain youth, Javed Ahmad and Suhail Ahmad, Moulana Tari expressed sympathies and solidarity with their families. He also prayed for the speedy recovery of those injured in Indian force’s unjustified firing. This is a war against the people of Kashmir. The incident is a big slap on the face of those maintaining criminal silence over the barbaric actions of the men in uniform in Kashmir. In fact the so- called rulers have given the forces a license to kill Kashmiri youth. Terming the Shopian killings as cold blooded murder, Moulana Tari said, the blood hungry men in uniform only implement the orders of the rulers who in order to please their masters in New Delhi are on a killing spree in Kashmir. Showering bullets on unarmed protesters has become a tag to the so-called rulers who have turned Kashmir into a death valley. While denouncing the civilian killings, Moulana Tari said, the Indian forces are showering bullets and pellets over the peaceful protestors who even try to raise voice for right to self-determination and it has become a routine now. After every such innocent killing a so called probe is ordered to deceive the people and the process goes on unabated.

Srinagar January 23:Calling for observing the Indian Republic Day as Black Day, and remembering the martyrs of Handwara and Kupwara on their death anniversaries, the Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that the carnages at Gawkadal, Handwara and Kupwara remind us of Indian brutal occupation and oppression. Around two hundred civilians were butchered by the Indian forces from Jan 21 to Jan 27 in 1990 in Srinagar, Handwara and Kupwara.The massacre of Gawkadal on Jan 21, 1990 was followed by massacres at Handwara and Kupwara on Jan 25 and Jan 27, respectively where around one hundred and fifty unarmed Kashmiris were gunned down by Indian forces without any provocation. Remembering the martyrs of Kashmir the DFP said that days like 21st Jan, 25th Jan and 27th Jan 1990remind us of sacrifices rendered by our loved ones. These are the days for renewal and reiteration of our commitments and today while recalling these great sacrifices we reiterate our pledge to take forward the mission of martyrs till the achievement of the desired goal. The nation is indebted to martyrs who laid down their lives for freedom so we all must pledge to continue the peaceful struggle till the achievement of the goal of freedom. Calling to observe the 26th Jan as Black Day, by complete shutdown, DFP said that India has no right to celebrate the day as it is busy in brutally crushing a democratic movement of Kashmiri people and it is using every undemocratic means to crush and kill the people of Kashmir. India is also silencing the voices of Kashmiris by jailing their genuine leadership like Shabir Ahmad Shah and it has been using its all institutions against the unarmed and peace loving Kashmiri people who are only demanding for the fulfillment of the promises made to them at local and international levels.

JKDFP appeals UNMOGIP to implement ceasefire and save human lives

Srinagar January 21 : Expressing serious concern over the LoC and border skirmishes of India and Pakistan and the loss of lives on both sides, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that Kashmir dispute is the only reason of prevailing tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad. Expressing deep concern over the loss of precious lives on both sides of the LoC and border, DFP secretary general Molana Mohammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement that unless Kashmir dispute is resolved in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of people, the clouds of war and border skirmishes between the two nuclear powers will remain. He said that Kashmiri people living on both sides of the de-facto border have never accepted the bloody line so it is high time to accept the historical facts about the Kashmir dispute and address it so as to resolve it once for all. This only can put an end to the India-Pakistan enmity and save precious human lives weather of armed force’s or civilians. He said that by shelling and firing along the LoC and international border human lives are lost. Properties are also damaged and people are compelled to flee from their native places hence putting them under severe psychological and physical stress. Appealing UNMOGIP to perform its duty, Molana Tari said that it must look into the day to day firing incidents along the LoC and inform the United Nations about the real situation of the line which divides Kashmir. The UNMOGIP is solely responsible to have a close vigil on the LoC and implement the ceasefire of 1949. The institution must impress upon India to address the political aspirations of the people of Kashmir and implement the resolutions passed in the UNSC from time to time. The addressing to the resolution of the Kashmir dispute could end the border tension between India and Pakistan, Molana Tari said.

Perpetrators of Gawkadal massacre are rooming free: JKDFP

Srinagar January 20 : Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has paid glowing tributes to the martyrs of Gawkadal on eve of their martyrdom anniversary. A senior party leader Er Farooq Khan said in a statement that Kashmir is a land of tragedies where Indian forces have committed massacres on every nook and corner. The Irony is that the killers involved in these massacres have not been dealt with as per law instead they have been promoted for killing Kashmiri Muslims. He said that more than 50 innocent people were killed in Gawkadal area of Srinagar on January 21 in 1990 when Indian forces resorted to indiscriminate firing on peaceful demonstrators who were protesting against the molestation of several women by troops in Chota bazaar area of Srinagar, the previous night. During the last around three decades Indian troops and police personnel have killed more than one lakh Kashmiri people for demanding for right to self determination. The party appealed the international human rights organizations to play their role in conducting impartial investigation into the incidents of all massacres in the territory to punish the perpetrators. In January 1990 only after the Gawkadal massacre, the Indian forces killed more than two hundred Muslims in Kupwara and Islamabad districts proving the fact that New Delhi had adopted its killing policy in early nineties. While paying tributes to all those killed in January 1990, Freedom Party leader said that Kashmir is a land of tragedies and the Irony is that the killers involved in massacres like Gawkadal have been promoted instead. The party appealed the international human rights organizations to probe all the massacres in Kashmir.

Mehmood Saghar condemns ED’s summon to Dr. Bilquees Shah

Islamabad January 19: The former convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Pak chapter and senior vice president of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Mehmood Ahmed Saghar on Friday condemned the ED authorities for summoning Dr. Bilquees to its office in New Delhi and termed the move as a scare tactic to pressurize and terrorize the incarcerated party chairman Shabir Ahmed Shah and his family. In a press statement the DFP leader said that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) were working on the whims and fantasies of BJP government to pressurize resistance leadership. “The scare-tactics is being used as a tool to force him (Shah) into submission”, he said adding that Shabir Ahmed Shah who had devoted his entire life for Kashmir cause and endured imprisonment of more than 30 years won’t be cowed down by such bullying tactics. The resistance leadership he said would never be deterred by such mean tactics. Expressing grave concern over the latest ED summon to Dr Bilquees he said that it was a politically motivated move, devoid of any legal and moral justification. “The only motive behind dragging Dr. Bilquees in such a fabricated and baseless case, which was actually settled by an Indian court way back in 2005, is nothing but to make matters worse so as to pro-long the detention of Shabir Ahmed Shah”, Saghar said .Saghar also voiced serious concern over the declining health condition of Shabir Ahmed Shah in Tihar Jail and demanded the international human righ ts organization to take effective notice of the miserable plight of Shah and other Kashmiri prisoners languishing different Indian jails.

JKDFP condemns ED for summoning Shabir Shah’s wife again

Srinagar January 18 : The Enforcement Directorate has again summoned the wife of incarcerated resistance leader, Shabir Shah. Condemning the latest ED summon to Shabir Shah’s wife, Dr Bilquees Shah, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party has said that on one hand ED has produced a so called charge sheet against Shabir Shah and on the other it has summoned his wife to its Delhi office. This shows that ED is trying to prolong the detention of Shabir Shah and is creating hurdles in his bail. A bail application of Shabir Shah is under the consideration of a Court which is scheduled to be heard on Jan 29 but ED has summoned Shabir Shah’s wife on Jan 30 clearly indicating its sinister designs against Shabir Shah. Freedom Party wants to make it clear that Shabir Shah is the name of an ideology which cannot be silenced by unethical, inhuman and illogical meanslike dragging a political leader’s wife in concocted cases. JKDFP castigates Indian army chief’s assertions, calls for political measures Strongly denouncing and castigating the assertions made by the Indian Army chief, General Bipin Rawat, the Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that it seems New Delhi has deliberately allowed its army chief to make statements on Kashmir every now and then to create fear among the freedom loving Kashmiri people. JKDFP Secretary General, Molana Mohammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement that Indian army chief’s day to day statements about Kashmir prove that New Delhi is only interested in military approach to address the long pending Kashmir dispute. “India has closed all political and diplomatic ways to address the Kashmir issue,” Molana Tari said adding it seems that India is herself interested in military solutions only which can lead to more bloodshed and destruction .Molana Tari made it clear that the issue of Jammu Kashmir is political in nature and its people are struggling to achieve justice but New Delhi is continuously creating hurdles in the way of its resolution. It has historically ignored the sentiments of the people of Kashmir and it is time and again resorting to the military means. Molana Tari also made it clear that people of Kashmir have not tired in the way of their seeking justice and it has been proven to the world time and again. The people of Kashmir exhibited utmost political maturity in 2008, 2010 and recently in 2016 by massive uprisings, the world stands witness to the fact that Kashmiri people believe in resolution. New Delhi is trying to terrify the peace loving Kashmiri people by resorting to civilian killings, arrests and crackdowns and using its army chief but fact of the matter is that unless Kashmir issue remains unresolved there can be no peace, neither in Kashmir nor in the south Asian region. Indian political leadership needs to understand that resolution of Kashmir dispute does not lay in the hands of army but leaders with statesmanship. New Delhi has been using its military might against Kashmiri people since decades together but of no result so it is high time to shun the bloody path and take practical political measures to address the long standing dispute

Indian judiciary denying justice to Shabir Shah by delaying it  : JKDFP

Srinagar January 17:Reacting sharply to fixing of April 26 as the next day of hearing to the bail application of its incarcerated chairman, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that though Shabir Ahmad Shah is not needed for any questioning yet he is kept behind bars only to punish him for his political stance over Kashmir dispute.

To discuss the continuous imprisonment of Shabir Shah and the concocted case against him, the DFP convened an executive meeting which was presided over by party Secretary General Molana Mohammad Abdullah Tari. While addressing the meeting Molana Tari said that a Delhi court on Tuesday directed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to file its reply to a fresh bail plea of Shabir Shah by February 26. The so called investigation by ED has been completed and the court is yet to decide about the so called charges against Shabir Shah however the senior resistance leader is behind the bars even without proving any allegation against him. The court was informed that earlier his bail was rejected on the ground that he can hamper the probe but when it is over there was no chance for Shabir Shah to hamper the probe. DFP meeting while strongly condemned the continuous incarceration of its chief, said that his better half who met him recently has expressed serious concerns over his deteriorating health conditions. DFP reiterated its demand of providing suitable medical aid to the ailing leader who is suffering from many and serious ailments in the infamous Tihar jail.

Shabir Shah moves court for bail, as wife alleges slow poisoning.

New Delhi January 16 : A Delhi court Tuesday directed the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to file its reply to a fresh bail plea of Kashmiri resistance leader Shabir Shah in a 2007 money laundering case related to alleged terror financing, even as his wife claimed he was being “slow poisoned” in the prison. Additional Sessions Judge Siddhartha Sharma, who had in August last year denied the relief to Shah citing ongoing probe, directed Enforcement Directorate’s (Ed) special public prosecutor N K Matta to file a reply to the fresh bail plea by February 26.In his bail application, the accused told the court that investigation in the case has been completed since the agency has filed its charge sheet and there was no chance for Shah to hamper the probe. Advocate M S Khan, appearing for Shah, told the court that no purpose will be served by keeping him in custody. Shah, who appeared before the court through video conference, also said he was lacking treatment inside the jail. “Trial is only going on because I am alive. If there is no Shah, there will be no trial,” 62-year old Shah said. Meanwhile, Shah’s wife Bilquees Shah, also moved an application before the court through the Defence lawyer and claimed that her husband was suffering from various ailments and was on regular medicine for last six years. She alleged that Shah was facing difficulty in getting those medicines inside the jail and was now also suffering from sudden loss of consciousness" My husband had similar fainting attacks in Tihar Jail. Repeated requests were made to the jail authorities but no steps were taken in this regard. This is a clear indication of slow poisoning of my husband by the jail authorities,” she told the court in her application. The court, meanwhile, initiated the trial and started recording the statement of the prosecution witnesses. It posted the matter for further hearing on February 26.The court had on August 22 last year rejected Shah’s bail plea after the ED said it was probing the case. On November 15, the court had framed money laundering charges against Shah and alleged hawala dealer Mohammad Aslam Wani in the case. Both the accused pleaded not guilty and claimed trial. The ED had on September 23 filed the charge sheet against Shah, accusing him being in touch with Pakistan-based terrorist Hafiz Sayeed. It had also named Wani, who is in judicial custody along with Shah.

JKDFP rejects Indian army chief’s, Mehbooba’s assertions

Srinagar January 15 : The Jammu Kashmir Democratic Party (JKDFP) has said that the statement of Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat is highly condemnable and unjustified. Senior party leader Er Farooq Khan said in a statement that General Rawat’s remark clearly proves that New Delhi is tackling Kashmir and Kashmiris only through its military might and there is nothing political in its kitty regarding Kashmir dispute. He said that Indian army chief General Rawat only wants the Hindu extremist’s prescription on resolution of the Kashmir problem which is not acceptable. Indian Army Chief General Rawat’s remarks about Kashmir and Kashmiris demonstrated his anti-Muslim and anti-Kashmir mindset. The statement has proved that the real control of India is lying in the hands of Indian armed forces. However, Kashmiris are rendering valuable sacrifices for the freedom cause and India can never defeat their aspirations by military means. Meanwhile, the DFP denounced the assertions made by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, and said that she had resorted to blatant lies for her lust to remain in power. Mehbooba Mufti had said that making Kashmir a part of India was the bold and historic decision of Sheikh Abdullah and Maharaja Hari Singh. The DFP maintained that such negative statements would not change the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir. Lashing at Mehbooba Mufti for her negative rhetoric, DFP said that she has no mandate to represent aspirations of people nor is she authorized to decide or say about political destiny of Kashmir. The present government has filled the jails of Jammu Kashmir and it will be known for its oppressive measures, the DFP said. The present regime will also be known for crackdowns in nook and corner of the valley.

Distorting facts a hall-mark of Pro-Indian Kashmiri politicians: Mehmood Saghar

Islamabad January 14:The former convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Pak chapter and senior vice president of Democratic Freedom Party Mehmood Ahmed Saghar has said that distortion and misrepresentation of facts has become hallmark of pro-Indian Kashmiri politicians who he said can go to any extent to appease their masters in New Delhi. Reacting to puppet Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s recent statement regarding the number of persons wounded in Kashmir due to bullets, pellets, PAVA shells fired upon them by Indian forces during the 2016 and 2017 mass uprising, the DFP leader said, “The numbers of injured persons were much higher than what Ms Mufti had revealed before the “so-called legislative assembly” a day before yesterday”. “More than twenty thousand people mostly youth have been wounded in Kashmir by Indian military and Para-military troops by resorting to excessive use of force during 2016 and 2017 mass uprising, among them 8353 received pellet injuries as a result 73 lost their eye sight completely, whereas, nearly 200 lost their vision partially ”Saghar said. Taking a jibe at mainstream political parties for distorting facts Saghar said that distortion of facts and historic realities has been hallmark of so called leaders who instead of representing their own people have always tried to appease their masters just to stay in power. “These political hacks who love to call themselves as public representatives have inflicted huge damage to Kashmir cause through deceit and deception”, he said adding that time has come that the Kashmiri masses should identify these political mercenaries who were hand in glove with Indian authorities. Regarding Mehbooba Mufti’s recent tirade against Hurriyat leaders for not holding dialogue with New Delhi’s point man for Kashmir, the DFP leader said that Ms Mufti was perhaps somewhere in political hibernation when Hurriyat leaders held dialogue with India but history bears witness to the fact that New Delhi used dialogue as an instrument to dilute the intensity of resistance movement in Kashmir. He said that pro-freedom leadership has never been averse to talks but what they want is that the talks should be all inclusive, Kashmir centric, time-bound and result-oriented. Saghar said that New Delhi’s call for a sustainable dialogue is nothing but a hoax. “On one hand they talk of dialogue while on the other they have been chocking every dissenting voice in Kashmir”, he said adding that a sizeable number of prominent Kashmiri leaders including Shabir Ahmed Shah have been thrown behind the bars on the pretext of trumped up charges. “The ill-treatment meted out to Shah Sahib and other Kashmiri prisoners at Tihar Jail is a matter of grave concern”, the DFP leader said adding that recent incidents of thrashing of prisoners in Tihar jail had put the lives of all Kashmiri political prisoners at risk. Demanding release of Kashmiri prisoners, he said, ” Kashmiri prisoners languishing in Indian jails are being harassed. They should not only be shifted to Kashmir but also be released without any further delay”

DFP serves legal notice to ETV Urdu for telecasting baseless news against shah

Srinagar January 8:Jammu & kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has served a legal notice to ETV Urdu TV channel for telecasting baseless news about its incarcerated chief Shabir Ahmad Shah. The notice issued through advocate Fayez Ahmad Sodagar said that Shabir Shah, who is presently lodged in Central Jail Tihar, New Delhi is a prominent and frontline pro freedom political leader of Jammu and Kashmir right from 1968, fighting for Right to Self Determination. The ETV Urdu on Dec 3, 2018 at 1900 hours (7:00 PM) telecasted a caption in Urdu saying “Rs 62.00 lakh amount was recovered from Shabir Ahmad Shah by Enforcement. Directorate.” The news is false and frivolous and has been deliberately aired. Even the charge sheet filed by ED New Delhi against Shabir Shah does not reveal anywhere that Rs Sixty lac have been recovered or seized from him. The notice said that Shabir Shah is a reputed political leader/figure of Jammu and Kashmir, and has earned a good fame and respect among the masses of Jammu and Kashmir in general and people of Kashmir in particular. Besides, he has a good repute, respect and fair name among people of several countries outside India, as he has been named as “Prisoner of Conscience” by Amnesty International in 1994.In consequence of the fake news item of ETV Urdu, the said TV channel have committed breach of fundamental and personal rights of Shabir Shah, the notice said. The notice has called upon ETV Urdu to take note of and pay an amount of Rs 5 crore (Rupees five crore) to Shabir Shah for inflicting harm to Shabir Shah.

While saluting the pro-freedom stance of Zinda Dilan-e-Sopore, Freedom Party said BSF troops tried their best to eradicate the emotions of people but people of the apple town are still firm on the way of resistance. The statement said that BSF men sprayed gun powder, petrol and kerosene on the buildings in Sopore and torched them after killing 57 innocent people. Around 400 commercial establishments and 75 residential houses were set ablaze in five localities of Sopore by Indian forces who went on a rampage only because people of Sopore are known for their pro-freedom political stance. Freedom Party condemned the closing of Sopore case file citing “lack of evidence”. There are countless cases like Sopore massacre where New Delhi has practically exhibited that it treats Kashmir as its colony. Freedom Party appealed the rights organizations active on international level to come forward for the rescue of Kashmiri people who are facing all sorts of violations at the hands of the Indian forces.

DFP demands implementation of UNSC resolutions

Srinagar Jan 3:Jammu & kashmir Democratic Freedom Party has said in a statement that Enforcement Directorate has nothing to prove against the incarcerated Freedom Party chief Shabir Ahmad Shah that is he was not produced before a Delhi Court yesterday. The judge of Patiala House Court Delhi waited for the whole day but ED did not produce Shabir Shah only to skip the wrath of the court. For hours ED told the court that Shabir Shah will be produced through video conferencing but finally the agency came with an excuse of faulty camera. Hence ED not only made a joke of justice but also of the judiciary of India. Justice demands that Shabir Shah should be released forthwith till the accusations against him are proved but New Delhi is not only prolonging his detention but also skips courts. These tactics are to keep Shabir Shah away from the court and prolong his incarceration. New Delhi has used such tactics in past as well to break the political will of Shabir Shah but it has failed each time before the steadfastness, truthfulness and straightforwardness of Shabir Shah. Meanwhile, JKDFP has said in a statement that New Delhi has become habitual of ignoring promises made with Kashmiri people at international levels. These promises have been made through various resolutions at UNSC of which the resolution of January 5, 1949 is of utmost importance. India has not only ignored the said resolutions but the promises of its first Prime Minister, Pandith Nehru. JKDFP has said that India cannot deny the legitimacy and authenticity of the UN resolution which stand witness that political destiny of Jammu and Kashmir is yet to be decided. The people of Jammu Kashmir have time and again pledged that they won’t take rest unless their political demands are fulfilled. They have rendered tremendous sacrifices and demand that international brethren should pressurize India to fulfill its promises made vis-à-vis Kashmir dispute.
