Srinagar, Apr 15 (UNI): Expressing serious concern over the escalating tension between the troops of India and Pakistan, especially in Poonch and Rajouri sectors resulting in immense damage, the moderate Hurriyat Conference (HC) on Monday said that every time there is exchange of fire on the Line of Control (LoC), people on the both sides of fence become the primary target and bear the brunt.

An HC spokesperson said the lingering Kashmir dispute was the main reason of rift between India and Pakistan and until the issue of Kashmir was resolved amicably, the bitterness between the two countries prevailing over the past seven decades, would not end.

Demanding the rollback of 'anti-people' highway closure order, the HC said that barring civilian traffic on the highway twice a week has caused immense hardships for the common masses. The decision of closing highway for two days a week is an anti-people move, he alleged.

It also denounced the shifting of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, already detained under Public Safety Act (PSA), from Jammu Jail to Delhi and handing him over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

The party also condemned the Enforcement Directorate's summon to the minor daughters of Democratic Freedom Party (PFP) Shabir Ahmed Shah and shifting of resistance and religious leaders to Haryana jail.

It said that shifting of prisoners to outside prisons was against the Geneva Convention and also the Supreme Court rulings that stress on lodging the inmates in jails closer to their homes.

He said shifting prisoners to jails that are thousands of kilometres away from their homes has added more to the worries of relatives of inmates, who are facing tremendous hardships in seeking permission to meet their dear ones.
