80 years Jama’at activist victim of political vengeance

Srinagar: A veteran Jama’at activist from Sopore Sheikh Mohammad Yousuf of eighty years of age has been once again detained under the draconian law of Public Safety Act (PSA), after keeping him under judicial custody for more than three months in district jail Kupwara wherein he was lodged in a fake case by Sopore police after his first detention under the PSA was quashed by the local High Court after taking notice of his old age and infirm health in his personal presence. The Sopore police instead of releasing him as per the court directions, under a false case shifted him to Kupwara from Baramullah jail. Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir vehemently denouncing the inhuman attitude of Sopore police impresses upon the release of Sheikh Mohammad Yousuf and other political detenues and prisoners who because of their support to the Kashmir cause are languishing in different jails for years together. Those political activists undergoing life imprisonment include Dr. Mohammad Qasim (Srinagar), Dr. Mohammad Shafi Khan (Khansahib, Budgam), Maqsood Ahmad Bhat (Pattan), Farooq Ahmad Sheikh (Bhaderwah), Mushtaq Ahmad Malla (Kupwara), Ghulam Mohammad Bhat (Khag, Budgam), Abdul Hameed Teli (Kulgam), Parvez Ahmad Mir (Tral), Feroz Ahmad Bhat (Tral), Mohammad Ishaq Pala (Minor: Shopian), Ghulam Qadir Bhat (Kupwara). Usually the life convicts are released after passing ten to fourteen years in jail but these political prisoners face biased and retributive attitude from the administration and some of them even after passing twenty or more years in jail are not being released. This is only because they are supporting the just and genuine cause of Kashmiri people. Jama’at-e-Islami demands unconditional release of all detainees and political prisoners including those youth who are languishing in jails and police stations on the allegations of stone-pelting during the protests.

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law).

Al'Quraan Surah Noor

Prophet Mohammad PBUH

Narrated: Abu Huraira (R.A) that a man said to the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam: "Advise me! "The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Do not become angry and furious." The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, "Do not become angry and furious." [Al-Bukhari; Vol. 8 No. 137]
