They are living in a jail like conditions.She said previous two months we have no any contact with Yasin Malik and Indian authorities had completely deprived Kashmiris of their basic rights including religious rights.She said all senior Hurriyat leadership is under detention at homes or in different prisons. She demanded from India for lifting the communication restrictions and allowing unfettered access to medical and other essential supplies.“India could not weaken the freedom sentiment of the resistance leaders of IOK through such cheap tactics,” she added. While saluting the courage of Burhan Wani and his associates, she said, Kashmiri martyrdom would be a milestone in the freedom struggle of Kashmir and it has entered a new era of freedom movement.She also thanked the government and people of Pakistan for their continued political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kashmir cause.
