New Delhi: Former Jammu and Kashmir CM Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Iltija Mufti in her tweet addressed to PM Modi today asked for how long does he intend to keep sons away from their mothers.
Ms Iltija was responding to recently clicked photographs of Modi meeting his mother that a news agency shared, Indian Express reports.
Ms Iltija calling the photographs heartwarming asked PM Modi about her mother and thousands of politicians including members, minor boys held in detention for the past three months.
“How much longer will you separate those mothers from their sons,” Ms Mufti asked indicating about J&K people held in detention by the state authorities.
Earlier in September, Ms Iltija after meeting her mother, sent an email to Home Secretary of Government of India seeking information on number of detentions, arrests carried out in the state.
“I, Iltija emailed the Home Secretary of GOI & Home Secretary of J&K on 18th September seeking certain information for my mother, Ms Mufti. I am still awaiting a response,” she said.
Recalling her meeting with Ms Mufti in September, Iltija said over the past three months in detention, her mother was neither briefed by any member of her political party nor had any access to newspapers.
“In my meeting with her, my mother expressed concern at the number of detentions and arrests (and in particular the reports of detention of children) that have taken place in the state,” she wrote.
Ms Iltija was allowed to travel to Srinagar to meet her mother after the Apex Court allowed her plea on September 5.
She pleaded before the court that she is concerned about her mother’s health as she has not met her in a month.
J& K Governor Satya Pal Malik had previously allowed PDP party members to meet Mehbooba, but however, she refused to meet the members.
