24 Kashmiris martyred last month in IHK
Islamabad—Indian troops in their unabated acts of state-terrorism martyred twenty-four Kashmiris including two young boys in the last month of November.
According to the data compiled by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, of those victims one youth was killed in a fake encounter. During the month, 352 people were critically injured when Indian police and paramilitary personnel used brute force on peaceful demonstrators while 202 civilians, mostly Hurriyet leaders and youth, were arrested. The troops damaged and ransacked 121 residential houses and disgraced at least 15 women as psychological tools to detach people’s association from the ongoing mass uprising erupted after the killing of renowned commander, Burhan Muzaffar Wani on July 8.
The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik and senior APHC leader Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi in their media interviews in Srinagar denounced the humiliation of hundreds of innocent youth at various police stations and described it as the worst type of state terrorism. They said that prisoners in different jails in and outside the Valley were subjected to the worst psychological torture by the use of different inhuman means and tactics.
The All Parties Hurriyet Conference in a statement expressed serious concern over the plight of pellet victims, and said that such lethal and fatal weapons were used nowhere, but in Kashmir where people were being punished and penalized only for their faith and resolve for freedom.
The Tehreek-e-Hurriyet has condemned the slapping of draconian Public Safety Act on its leader Hamza Shah and detention of other leaders and activists. It said that arbitrary arrests and detentions would not deter the Kashmiri people from pursuing the sacred cause of freedom.
