Muslim Deeni Mahaz (MDM) has expressed grave concern over the deteriorating health of its incarcerated Ameer Dr Muhammad Qasim in Udhampur Jail.
“Dr Qasim is suffering from acute Glaucoma and L4 L5 disc problem and in absence of any medical treatment in jail, his condition has deteriorated considerably,” a MDM spokesman said in a statement.
“Recently the family members of Dr Qasim visited him in the Udhampur jail and were taken aback by his worsening health condition,” he said.
The spokesman said, “Dr Qasim has developed acute gastroenterology problem and was bed ridden for last 10 days. There is no doctor available in jail premises and he is not being taken for a medical checkup as well.”
“The MDM appeals to the world community and the human rights organisations to look into the case of Dr Qasim and act against the way a man is being held incarcerated for his political ideology,” the spokesman said, appealed to all the Muslims to pray for the wellbeing of the incarcerated ailing leader.
