Dear all

We had started an  e-petition  addressed to Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch to take up the case of this Kashmiri , Waqar  and many like him lamguishing in priosn, at ipetition website, but our was pulled off with following message today

“Hello, Unfortunately, our legal department has encountered some legal issues regarding your petition (http://www.ipetitions.com/ petition/release-waqar-ahmad/). We are forced to remove your petition from our site, otherwise we are subject to legal proceedings. The petition will be disabled for at least 48 hours prior to removal, but you will have access to its database during that period. We apologize once again. Thank you for your understanding. -Alex iPetitions Support-iPetitions Support”

the important points to note in this case are

Important Points:

– The Indian State has booked Waqar under draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) that allows the state to jail anyone for two years without trail. Waqar is not a dreaded criminal but only any other college student who asks for his rights.

– The authorities in Indian-Held Kashmir have shifted Waqar to Kothbhawal Jail, more than 300 km from his home in Srinagar. When a person is detained under preventive law, he cannot be logdged more than 300 kms away from his place of residence, thereby flouting a law pronouced by Supreme Court of India.

– The Indian State has deprived Waqar of his education and is on verge of denting his bright career. It is important to mention that he has managed to get a high score despite being in Jail securing ‘A’ grade in the Final Year exam papers he has appeared in inside Jail.

We have started our petition again at teh change.org website , pl sign and share widely
