Calling Hurriyat leaders separatists mere ignorance, not right to arrest these citizens: Jethmalani

New Delhi, Aug 23 (ANI): Senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani on Sunday said that it is mere ignorance of political parties to call Hurriyat leaders as separatists. He criticised the leaders from the government as well as other political parties, for referring to the Kashmir based group's leaders as separatists, calling people who use the term for them as 'illiterate'.

He said that the government has no right to arrest or detain these leaders who are also the citizens of the country. He also slammed former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi for some of the clauses in the Shimla Agreement.
