Family starts online campaign for son’s release from Tihar
SRINAGAR, Nov 12: The desperate family of incarcerated Kashmir University student, Muhammad Rafiq Shah, today launched an online campaign to gain support for his release.

Shah, son of Mohammad Yaseen Shah of Alesteng, was arrested on November 21 2005 for his alleged involvement in pre-Diwali blasts in New Delhi in the same year. He has been languishing in Tihar jail for seven years now.

An online petition addressed to Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, was uploaded by Shah’s mother, Mehmooda Begum, pleading that her son was “falsely implicated” in the case and was not being released “despite evidence in his favour.”

“My son, Muhammad Rafiq Shah, was arrested on 21 November 2005. He has been in Tihar Jail for seven years despite evidence supporting the fact that he is innocent. He has been falsely implicated in the pre-Diwali blasts in Delhi in 2005,” reads the petition on world's largest platform for submitting petitions online.

“My son,” she continued, “had never visited Delhi and was in the Kashmir University when the blasts happened. The state and central agencies have found nothing against him.”

The security agencies have been claiming that Shah was present in Delhi at the time of blast, while the family has produced his attendance records suggesting that he was in the class in Kashmir University.

“The then VC of KU, Prof Abdul Wahid, and even Prof Riyaz Punjabi after him have provided the attendance register confirming Rafiq's presence in the university on the said dates. Despite all evidence confirming my son's innocence he is still languishing in jail,” she pleads.

Mehmooda has appealed everyone to sign the petition for more support to his son’s release, and already more than 100 supporters from across the world, including many from India, have signed it.

“I want to see a mother smile, whose son has been kept away from her since 7 years,” a signatory from Turkey, Muhammad Faysal, explains the reason behind his support to the petition, “Enough of your tears, mother. Your son shall come soon, Insha allah.”

And Aqqiela Zuhra from Selangor Malaysia writes: “To end the pain of a mother who wants to be re-united with her son.”
