Bhim Singh demands release of political & PSA prisoners before Eid as General Amnesty

Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party and Member of National Integration Council has urged Shri N.N. Vohra, the Governor of J&K for his urgent intervention for unconditional release of all political and PSA prisoners who have been languishing in different jails in J&K on the eve of Eid as a token of goodwill message to hundreds of families of the prisoners.

          Prof.Bhim Singh said that there are several youngsters/students/juvenile who were imprisoned and continue to be in jails in J&K under minor offences, some of them relating to so-called stone-pelting incidents in 2010. Prof.Bhim Singh said that the continued detention under PSA or otherwise of the youth and students in J&K is highly undesirable and violative of the human rights of the people. The Chief Minister, Mr. Omar Abdullah, who always talks of democracy and human rights should start sweeping from his own door to cure the blunders which has been committed in his own regime whether in Kashmir Valley or in Gool or Kishtwar. He has been accusing the Army personnel looking after the security of the state for alleged human rights violation. He asked him (Chief Minister) what about the human rights violation in J&K committed and are being committed by his own government.

          He forcefully pleaded for the release of all prisoners in J&K who are not involved in heinous crimes like murder, so that a message of goodwill may be extended to the families of the prisoners. So that the young one may start their career again.

          Prof.Bhim Singh in the rejoinder to the Chief Minister said that if the political prisoners in J&K detained under PSA or otherwise are not released before Eid or on the Eid day, he shall knock the doors of the Supreme Court of India to ensure delivery of justice to the victims of J&K government languishing in J&K prisons.
