Jammu and Kashmir: Govt issues order releasing Farooq Abdullah from preventive detention

Abdullah, after his release, has thanked the people of Jammu and Kashmir and has stated that he will not speak of any political issue till all political leaders are released.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration has revoked the detention of Former Chief Minister and National Conference Chief Farooq Abdullah and ordered his release with an immediate effect.

In the month of December, the detention term of NC leader Farooq Abdullah was extended by three months. He was put under house arrest under the stringent Public Safety Act(PSA) in September after a month of the abrogation of Article 370 that removed the special status accorded to Jammu and Kashmir. The Modi government had also bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into three union territories Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Abdullah, after his release, has thanked the people of Jammu and Kashmir and has stated that he will not speak of any political issue till all political leaders are released.

His son Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, who were put under house arrest on August 5, the same day when 370 was nullified by the center, continues to be in detention.

The opposition including Congress, Trinamool Congress, Akali Dal and NCP had earlier demanded the release of politician Farooq Abdullah, along with his son Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti in a joint statement.

Besides these major political giants of the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act was also slapped on various leaders like NC general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, Former NC MLC Bashir Veeri and PDP Leader Sartaj Madni, IAS turned politician Shah Faesal and many others.
