Dukhtaran-e-Millat protests Asiya’s re-arrest in Srinagar

Srinagar: Activists of the hardline women’s separatist outfit Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Thursday protested the re-arrest of its chairperson Asiya Andrabi by police on charges of indulging in unlawful activities.

Over two dozen activists of the DeM (daughters of the faith) held protests here to demand the release of Andrabi, who was arrested on September 18 from her Soura residence and is currently lodged in women’s police station at Rambagh here.

The DeM activists also denounced the beef ban in the state and termed it a “part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party’s Hindutva agenda”.

“It is permitted for Muslims to slaughter bovine animals and we will never accept this beef ban. Why not ban liquor in Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir? Instead of banning liquor, police is protecting wine shops here,” Nasreen said.
