Islamabad, February 28 (KMS): Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, Convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference AJK chapter, has strongly condemned the arrest of APHC vice Chairman Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar by Indian forces in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad, today, warned that all such revengeful arrests and imprisonments would further aggravate the already tense situation in occupied Kashmir. He deplored that crackdown on the defenders of free speech, free press and assembly had encouraged enemies of human rights and humanity.
