Mirwaiz Qazi Yasir condemns arrest of resistance leaders, demands prisoners’ release
Islamabad, Nov 11: The Chairman of Ummat e Islami Jammu Kashmir Mirwaiz Qazi Ahmed Yasir on Friday condemned the re-arrest of pro-resistance leaders and called for unity among leadership and the people to fight against occupation.
Mirwaiz Qazi Yasir said that the re-arrest of Muhammad Yasin Malik, detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and continuous arrest of Shabir Shah including many others in prisons for months shows that the government is not willing to have a meaningful dialogue on returning peace in Kashmir.
“These arrests are done to threaten the resistance leadership that decided to continue the on going protests. Despite so many losses to us representatives of every section is willing to continue the on going movement and stay united come what may. Resistance leaders also must not forget the contribution of Ulemas like Sarjan Barkati and Sajad Hashmi who propelled this movement to its peak,” he said.
He said that the people have every right to question leaders and leaders need to lead the nation and people need to follow and that’s the only way possible to attain the goal of freedom. “The unity of people and leadership is mandatory in the fight against occupation. Fighting such a huge economy and power must not discourage us but should not be understood to be a six month hartal battle,” he said.
