Srinagar, National Investigation Agency (NIA) has issued notice to bar president Mian Qayoom.
According to reports, Qayoom, a veteran lawyer and many times Bar president has been called to Delhi for questioning.
Condemning the issuance of notice to Qayoom, Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) has termed the NIA probe a ploy and said the NIA has become a tool of the RSS to harass and muzzle the civil society faces of Kashmir.
“First it was an attack on the economy when some of the leading businessmen were unduly harassed by the NIA through the so called raids and now the other prominent faces of Kashmiri society are being harassed,” said KEA chairman Muhammad Yasin Khan.
He said it was unfortunate on the part of PDP led government To be silent. “Till now the PDP has been silent over the NIA raids though this operation is a conspiracy to muzzle the voice of people of Kashmir,” he said.
Asking New Delhi to refrain from such “cheap tactics”” Khan said the central government should understand that Kashmir is a political problem which needs a political solution than witch-hunting executed through NIA.
The KEA has extended full support to the bar association over the issue.
