Indian police detain religious cleric in IIOJK

Srinagar, August 19 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian police detained a prominent religious cleric, Manzoor Ahmad Malik, after summoning him to Pattan police station in Baramulla district to prevent him from leading Muharram processions.

Muzamil, one of the cousins of Manzoor Ahmad, said, “The policemen had come to his home on Tuesday but since he had to lead a majlis that day, he told them that he would present himself the next day. The next day, at around 9:00am, he went to the police station.”

When Manzoor Ahmad Malik didn’t come back for a while, the family got worried and few members along with Muzamil went to the police station where they were told that he has been detained and will be released after 14th Muharram (Monday).
