Yesterday in Kashmir, the Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq demanded the restoration of 4G internet speed to fight the coronavirus epidemic. They also demanded the immediate release of all Kashmiri prisoners in several jails across India on humanitarian grounds since overcrowded jails make them vulnerable to the epidemic & other diseases.

We should stand with them in demanding the immediate release of all political prisoners–Kashmiris in Indian jails as well as Palestinians in Israeli jails, Rohingya in Burmese jails, Uyghur in Chinese jails, Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans.
