Sister and aunt of former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, Safia Abdullah and Suriaya Abdullah, have been detained throughout a protest towards the scrapping of Article 370 and 35A in Srinagar on Tuesday, October 15.
The 20-odd girls, who had been a part of the protest, carried placards which learn, ‘Kashmiri brides not on the market’, ‘Why downgrade Jammu and Kashmir state’. Moments after the ladies protesters spoke to the media, the police swung into motion and took them away to the close by police station.
“We want to know the fate of those who have been detained, that’s why we are protesting,” stated Muslim Jan, an academician.
“The government of India is telling the world that we are happy, somebody should speak to us to find out how we are feeling, we are not happy, there are restrictions in Kashmir, we are highlighting those issues,” stated Hawa Bashir, an academician.
“We the women of Kashmir disapprove of the unilateral decision taken by the government of India to revoke article 370 and 35A and downgrade the status of Jammu and Kashmir,” an announcement by the protesting girls stated.
“We feel betrayed humiliated and violated as people we demand the restoration of civil liberties and fundamental rights of civilians. We demand demilitarisation of rural and urban areas. We demand the immediate release of detainees. We express outrage against national media for their false and misleading coverage of ground realities in Kashmir.”
The Public Security Act has been slapped towards Farooq who’s lodged in his home, G-40, at Srinagar’s posh Gupkar Highway. Earlier his daughter Safiya had put up a black flag, seemingly as a mark of protest towards the revocation of the particular standing of J&Ok exterior her home.
The J&Ok administration has justified the slapping of PSA on the Nationwide Convention president on the grounds that he has “tremendous potential to create public disorder in Srinagar and other parts of the Valley”.
The administration has cited a number of situations since 2016 when he made statements in battle with the regulation.
Farooq’s son and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is detained in Hari Niwas. Farooq’s brother and senior Nationwide Convention chief Mustafa Kamal has been detained at his dwelling.
