Islamabad: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir (APHC-AJK) chapter has expressed profound grief and sorrow over the death of Muhammad Maqbool Lone, father-in-law of illegally detained APHC Chairman Masarat Alam Butt, who passed away in Srinagar, yesterday.
According to Kashmir Media Service, APHC-AJK chapter Convener Mehmood Ahmed Saghar, General Secretary Sheikh Abdul Mateen and other Hurriyat leaders in their separate statements in Islamabad expressed their sympathy and solidarity with the bereaved family members.
They said by illegally detaining Masarat Alam Butt and other Hurriyat leaders, India is subjecting them to political revenge for their demand for freedom. They said India, which claims to be the largest democratic country in the world, is not allowing the Hurriyat leaders even to see their loved ones last, which is very sad and condemnable.
They prayed to Almighty Allah to rest the departed soul in eternal peace and grant courage to the bereaved family to bear the irreparable loss.
