         ISLAMABAD-The Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference (JKMC) has strongly condemned the arrest of Huriyat leaders and youth by Indian troops.

According to Kashmir Media Service the JKMC Chairman, Shabbir Ahmad Dar in a statement issued in Srinagar deplored that the authorities had arrested senior Hurriayt leader and Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir Chairman, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai under draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) and shifted him to Udhampur jail in Jammu.

He also denounced the arrest of Acting Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League, Farooq Ahmad Tawheedi and urged the international community human rights organisations to send their teams to jails in Jammu and Kashmir and India where Kashmiri political detainees are facing health and other problems.

He reiterated the Kashmiris’ resolve to continue the ongoing freedom movement and demanded resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with aspirations of the Kashmiri people to end tension in the region.
