In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Pairwaan-e-Wilayat has expressed outrage over the statement of Indian Home Minister Amit Shah in which he had said that India would not talk to Pakistan on the Kashmir issue.
The Pairwaan-e-Wilayat spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Pakistan is an important party to the Kashmir dispute and such statements by Amit Shah cannot change the ground realities on the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that India wanted to stifle the Kashmiris’ voice for their right to self-determination through military might and over the past two years the way Kashmiris have been subjected to mass arrests and illegal detentions in Jammu and Kashmir speaks volume about the fact that New Delhi has turned the territory into a police state.
The spokesman said that the unjustified killing of an innocent Kashmiri by Indian forces in Zinapura area of Shopian is a clear example of rising Indian state terrorism in the territory. —KMS
