All Parties Hurriyat Conference General Secretary, in a press release condemned the arrest of a senior youth leader, Umar Aadil Dar at the hands of police station Islamabad and slapping public safety act (PSA) on him. 

Terming his arrest as an act of sheer vengeance, Hurriyat leader expressed his anguish on the rampant use of draconian laws like public safety act, which curbs the civil liberty of the detained person without any legal trail and justification. 

Denouncing the police action, the Hurriyat leader regretted that freedom of expression is a distant dream in Jammu and Kashmir under the prevailing martial law like situation where people get killed, maimed and incarcerated on one pretext or the other. 

Extending his full support to the JRL program, Hurriyat leader urged people belonging to all walks of life to participate in the religious prayers in absentia for the martyrs of Shopian, Sopore and Kupwara on August 5, Sunday after Zuhar prayers in the nook and corner of the state. Hurriyat leader appealed people to display a strong unity to fight Indian aggression on all fronts.
