Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai strongly condemned the shifting of incarcerated leaders Masarat Alam Bhat  and sending him to NIA custody,including Asiya Andrabi and Shabir Ahmed Shah who are languishing in Tihar Jail, is the worst demonstration of political vendetta and quite disheartening .He said the incarcerated leaders has no fault except that they believe that Jammu and Kashmir is a political issue and struggling for its final political resolution which had been promised to the people of kashmir and never fulfilled yet.Jailing and intimidating political leaders over dissent and political belief is not a democracy which india claimed.

Terming ,it a sheer vengeance and biased attitude. Sehrai expressed his dismay saying that indian judiciary is not doing fair trial rather fallowing biased towards the kashmir political prisoners.Though these arrests are not new for these leaders but it has again proved that there is no such thing as democracy or freedom of expression prevails in the state.
 Sehrai, said the Kashmiri prisoners and leadership have been booked under the charges of being part of Kashmir’s political struggle which is political in nature and nothing else has been proved against them. They said that it was proven that these prisoners had been kept in prison under a well-planned conspiracy.The civil liberties and democratic rights of freedom loving people have been trampled upon by police, paramilitary and the armed forces. Draconian laws are framed and political activists during their legitimate political activity are framed under such black laws,” he said.

He urged the international organizations including the Amnesty International, Asia Watch to play their role in ensuring shifting of all the Kashmiri prisoners back to the Kashmir Valley without any further delay and play its role in their release.
