Srinagar, Jan 3: (GNS) Hurriyat Conference (M) on Wednesday strongly denounced the government’s decision of yet again placing the chairman of the amalgam Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under detention at his Nigeen residence.

A spokesperson of the amalgam in a statement issued to GNS termed the move as “autocratic which reflects the paranoid mindset of the ruling class”.

He said confining Mirwaiz to his house every other day is part of a “well-planned conspiracy” to restrict his movement and to create a gap between him and people. 

“The frequent house confinement of Mirwaiz has not only affected his social and political engagements but religious duties as well,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mirwaiz in a statement issued to GNS thanked Almighty Allah for the successful liver transplant surgery of Hurriyat’s executive council member and president of the Itehad-ul-Muslimeen Moulana Masroor Abbas Ansari in Delhi. He prayed for his full and speedy recovery. (GNS)
