Disallowing son to carry father’s dead body on highway condemnable: Sehrai  

Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai Friday strongly condemned the ‘inhuman and shameful’ incident as reported in local print media, where a son was not allowed to carry forward his father’s dead body and halted for hours on Jammu-Srinagar highway due to the movement of Amarnath pilgrims.

In a statement issued to KNO, Sehrai said such arbitrary application of power where a person was taking his mortal remains and prevented to proceed just to facilitate convoys exposed the hollowness of the human rights and pathetic state of affairs prevailing.

He added that such frequent incidents and restrictions is now turning into a humanitarian disaster. “The incident was so inhuman that it forced the son to express his anger and frustration on his social media twitter handle,” he added.
