Appealing state government to give heed to the appeal of family of Sarjan Barkati, AIP president Er. Rasheed has sought immediate and unconditional  release of Mr. Barkati who is languished in jail since last two years.In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said “Barkati and all others lodged in different jails are not criminals but political prisoners who have been  seeking a permanent  resolution to Kashmir dispute .May New Delhi answer if seeking resolution to political dispute of Kashmir , which has been  recognized by the international community even at the UN, is  a crime. If police and other agencies do not respect the court orders and imprison  innocent Kashmiris through extrajudicial detentions, what can be more irony and shameful than this act.”Er. Rasheed added that on one hand prime minister Narandra Modi has been claiming to embrace Kashmiris but the state keeps even political  prisoners like Sarjan Barkati in illegal detention, isn’t it enough proof that Sarjan Barkati’s argument is stronger and logical than the claims and  commitments of prime minister. He urged government to release all political detainees lodged in various jails in and outside state.Er. Rasheed added that Sarjan Barkati’s family by hitting streets of Srinagar has exposed the human face of security agencies and the tall claims of  union government to own Kashmiris.Er. Rasheed appealed authorities to listen to the voice of their inner conscious and release Sarjan Barkati without further excuses and judicial murders.(PTK)
