AJK protest over Indian FM’s speech at UNGA

67

A massive protest was organized here on Saturday under the aegis of Pasban-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir against Indian Foreign Minister Jaishankar’s speech at the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Large number of citizens, waving banners and black flags, marched on the main road of AJK capital while chanting slogans of “Boycott Boycott India Boycott.” While addressing the protest, Chairman Pasban-e-Hurriyat Uzair Ahmed Ghazali said the Indian foreign minister was trying to educate the world about peace while his own country had been illegally occupying Jammu and Kashmir for the last seventy four years.

He maintained that the Indian forces had killed thousands of innocent civilians for raising their voice for the implementation of UN resolutions. “Millions of citizens were compelled to migrate while tens of thousands of Kashmiri citizens were injured by bullets, pellet guns and other violent attacks by the Indian forces”, Ghazali added.

Moreover, he said, thousands of citizens were abducted from their homes by Indian forces, assassinated and buried in anonymous graves. In fact, he added, the address of Indian foreign minister about peace at the UNGA was an insult to the prestigious platform, as the state he was representing, had been committing grave human rights violations in the occupied territory for decades.
