The Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday condemned as “state terrorism” the re-arrest of Muslim League Chairman Masarat Alam Bhat.
Bhat was re-arrested after a court quashed the Public Safety Act (PSA) slapped on him.
“It is very shameful and highly condemnable on the part of Indian democratic claims that an entire state is at war with a single person and he is continuously being subjected to the political vengeance,” said Geelani.
He said that the PSA has been termed as a “Lawless Law” by the international human rights organization Amnesty International and had termed its application as serious violations of human rights.
“In Jammu & Kashmir, this law is the favorite weapon of war for the government used to suppress and silence the peaceful and genuine voices of the pro-freedom people,” he said.
