Denial of treatment to Shabir Shah

The arrests and detentions can’t dampen spirit of those who are committed to the cause. He has all along fought peacefully for the right which has been recognized by international community under the auspicious of UN’s Security Council 

This refers to the denial of proper treatment to senior pro-freedom leader Shabir Shah which is condemnable to say the least. Shabir Shah has spend more than half of his life in torture chambers, interrogation centers and various jails of India for espousing the cause of unfettered right of self determination of people of Jammu and Kashmir.

The denial of medicare to Shabir Shah which has created heavy impact on his health is sheer vendetta on the part of authorities which want to stifle and muzzle the voice of dissent. The arrests and detentions can’t dampen spirit of those who are committed to the cause. He has all along fought peacefully for the right which has been recognized by international community under the auspicious of UN’s Security Council and according to international conventions and norms for political rights.

Denial of proper treatment amounts to criminal negligence and a malicious intent to harm him physically after failing to browbeat his sentiments, which doesn’t suit the advocates of ‘peace and democracy’.
