Mehbooba Mufti criticised the arrests of several separatist leaders saying, “You can imprison a person but not his ideas.”

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Mehbooba wrote: “In the past 24 hours, Hurriyat leaders & workers of Jamaat organisation have been arrested. Fail to understand such an arbitrary move which will only precipitate matters in J&K. Under what legal grounds are their arrests justified? You can imprison a person but not his ideas.”

Several separatist leaders including JKLF chief Muhammad Yasin Malik and chief (Ameer Jama’at) Dr Abdul Hamid Fayaz were arrested during a night raid in the Kashmir Valley.
