The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has expressed serious concern over the upsurge in Indian state terrorism in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the APHC in a statement issued in Srinagar said killings, arrests, torture, destruction of property and other atrocities by Indian Army, police and paramilitary personnel during house raids and so-called cordon and search operations have become a routine matter in the territory. It pointed out that Indian forces’ personnel have turned the Jammu and Kashmir once called a paradise on earth as a hell for its inhabitants.

The APHC appealed to the international community to take cognizance of grim human rights situation in IIOJK and play an effective role in resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations.

APHC leaders including Abdul Ahad Parra, Zamruda Habib, Yasmeen Raja and Dr Musaib in their separate statements demanded immediate release of all illegally detained Kashmiris languishing in different jails of IIOJK and India.

Meanwhile, a report released by Kashmir Media Service on the occasion of International Day of Democracy, today, said India has proved itself a fake democracy by suppressing with brute force the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination guaranteed by several resolutions of the UN Security Council. It pointed out that despite facing the worst Indian brutalities for the last 75 years, the Kashmiri people are determined to carry on their struggle till they achieve their democratic rights.

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has strongly condemned the continued human rights violations and arrest of people by Indian troops in the territory.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the APHC leaders and parties, Abdul Ahad Parra, Zamruda Habib, Yasmeen Raja, Dr Musaib, and Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League in their separate statements expressed serious concern over the continued human rights violations and atrocities by Indian troops in the occupied territory.

The statements urged the Indian government to release all political detainees, including APHC Chairman Masarrat Aalam Butt, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Aasiya Andrabi, Naheeda Nasreen, Fehmeeda Sofi, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja Merajuddin Kalwal and Mushtaq-ul-Islam languishing in different jails of India and IIOJK.

The leaders also expressed serious concern over the arrest of Maulana Abdul Majeed Madni and Maulana Tariq-ur-Rehman Malik in Srinagar by Indian police without any reason.—INP
