Fakhtoo stresses collective relief work for flood victims

ISLAMABAD: Illegally detained Hurriyet leader and the Ameer of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Deeni Mahaz, Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, has appealed to all Hurriyet leaders and philanthropists to unite to help the flood-affected people of the territory in a more effective manner.

Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo in a statement issued in Srinagar said that it was need of the hour that all the forums should work under one banner to carry out the effective relief operation across the occupied territory, KMS reported.

He suggested that a joint relief committee should be formed under the chairmanship of the President of Kashmir High Court Bar Association, Mian Abdul Qayoom.

“As the relief operation is a time-consuming process and winter is round the corner, therefore, relief activities have to be on war footing basis that can only be done by creating this joint relief committee,” he added.

Dr Fakhtoo also urged the leadership of High Court Bar Association to provide legal aid to the five Kashmiris, who were recently sentenced to life imprisonment by a court in Indian state of Rajasthan.

The Bar Association should challenge the judgment in Rajasthan High Court on behalf of the people, he added.
