‘You can imprison a person but not his ideas’: Mehbooba Mufti bats for separatists after govt crackdown

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, strongly condemned the arrests of separatist leaders as well. He said on Twitter, "Such illegal and coercive measures against Kashmiri’s are futile and will not change realities on the ground. Force and intimidation will only worsen the situation."

We had earlier reported that there has been a massive crackdown on Jamaat-e-Islami leaders in Jammu and Kashmir. Security forces had reportedly carried out raids and arrested dozens of Jamat-e-Islami leaders from Srinagar and around. JKLF leader Yasin Malik has also been arrested. Former Chief Minister of the state, Mehbooba Mufti, has questioned the legal grounds for the arrest of the separatist leaders. She tweeted on Saturday, “Under what legal grounds are their arrests justified? You can imprison a person but not his ideas.”

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, strongly condemned the arrests as well. He said on Twitter, “Such illegal and coercive measures against Kashmiri’s are futile and will not change realities on the ground. Force and intimidation will only worsen the situation.”

Speculations have been running rife since last night. The Ministry of Home Affairs has also reportedly given orders for moving 100 additional companies of paramilitary forces into the Jammu and Kashmir. These include 45 companies of CRPF, 35 of BSF, 10 of SSB and 10 companies of ITPB. Pakistan, too, is apparently preparing for war.
