SRI NAGAR: Head of Rehabilitation Centre Laila Qureshi arrested and released today by India in Jammu Kashmir.
Laila Qureshi who is a Dutch national and was postgraduated from London, has been running rehabilitation centre in Srinagar. She had issued a statement today in which she accused the indian government of being so intolerant that anyone who may be a drugs addict, scholar, a freedom – fighter, journalist or Pakistan cricket team supporter would be arrested under the so called Public Safety Act (PSA).
The Indian authorities held her for a day just to pressurize her for refraining from issuing political statements against India. She was released when the indian regime realized she would not withdraw her statement and that someone was about to approach the Dutch embassy.
Laila Qureshi is the daughter of a veteran Kashmiri leader Hashim Qureshi.
