The 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.

PICTURE IN FOCUS

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

 

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. The party said that Indian judiciary is indulging in denying justice to Shabir Shah by delaying it. 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’s falling health has not only caused worries to his family but to party and his admirers as well.

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”

JKDFP serves legal notice to ETV Urdu channel for telecasting baseless news against Shabir Shah, claims Rs 5 crore

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. (Copy of the notice is attached)

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.

If India is sincere in changing the overall situation of its Muslims, it must accept the recommendations of its own experts which they have put forth time and again,” he added. Muhammad Abdullah Tari said that by interfering in the religious matters of Muslims, India is in fact encouraging communalism and hatred which is very harmful in any way. Meanwhile, a DFP delegation went to Drabgam and Tral areas of Pulwama to pay tributes to Manzoor Ahmed Baba and Fardeen Ahmed, who were martyred by Indian troops on Monday. Addressing mourners on the occasion, the DFP leaders said that the Indian authorities were leaving no stone unturned to intimidate and suppress the people of Kashmir.

JKDFP reacts to not producing Shabir Shah in court, 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.

Besides others, district president Pulwama Mohammad Amin was also part of the delegation. Addressing the present people the delegation members said that the freedom struggle of Kashmir is becoming more precious after every martyrdom of our brave hearts who render tremendous sacrifices to break the chains of oppression. They said that it is because of these sacrifices that Kashmir issue is being talked at international forums. These brave hearts are in fact keeping the torch of resistance burning by using their precious blood. The whole nation is indebted to these heroes who lay down their lives for a noble cause. The DFP delegation said that Indian stubborn attitude towards the resolution of Kashmir dispute is responsible for the bloodshed. If New Delhi is sincere about the peace and stability of the south Asian region, it should accept the historic facts related to Kashmir dispute without any further delay. They said that sacrifices of those like Shaheed Manzoor Ahmad Baba and Shaheed Fardeen Ahmad have increased the responsibilities of the nation manifold. Both the martyrs along with a guest brave heart achieved martyrdom at Lethpora Pulwama during a gunfight. The DFP delegation expressed solidarity with the families of the martyrs and assured them that the sacrifices of their sons will be protected at any cast. The Indian authorities are leaving no stone unturned to intimidate and suppress the people of Kashmir using arbitrary measures. However, people exhibit their attachment with the freedom movement whenever they get a chance. This only indicates that all oppressive measures have failed to crush the freedom sentiment in the disputed region. Stop interfering in religious matters of Muslims: DFP to India Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party has said that India is interfering in the religious matters of Muslims and recent decisions about Talaq and Haj are glaring examples of it .DFP secretary general Molana Mohammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement that recent decisions of New Delhi have hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims on the whole. He said that New Delhi is provoking 30 crore Muslims in the garb of changing them. If New Delhi is sincere in changing the overall situation of its Muslims, it must accept the recommendations of its own experts which they have put forth time and again. The situation of Muslims can be changed by implementing reservations for them and especially Muslim women, Molana Tari said adding however New Delhi is trying to prove Muslims as uncivilized which can only produce negative results. He said that by interfering in the religious matters of Muslims India is in fact encouraging communalism and hatred which is very harmful in any way.

Both the brave hearts achieved martyrdom at Lethpora Pulwama during a gunfight. Terming New Delhi responsible for ghastly situations in the region, the statement said that there was no let-up in the human rights violations like harassing civilians and restrictions on political activities. Referring to year 2017, the DFP statement said that human rights violations marked most horrible as killings and arrests have touched its highest level. The authorities have in fact waged war on people of Kashmir. Indian forces have killed 206 freedom fighters in last one year. At least 80 civilians were also brutally killed by forces while as hundreds of civilians sustained injuries at the hands of the men in uniform and properties worth corers was destroyed. The genuine political leaders like DFP chief, Shabir Ahmad Shah continued to remain behind bars which have created a huge political gape resulting in chaos and confusion. Political leaders and activists are subjected to vengeance and agencies like NIA and ED have been activated to silent the political opponents. The Indian authorities are leaving no stone unturned to intimidate and suppress the people of Kashmir using arbitrary measures. However, the DFP statement hailed the people for their commitment towards the freedom struggle and said that spirit of people will fail each and every sinister design of India and its forces.
