APHC denounces fresh killing spree in held valley


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference while strongly condemning the fresh killing spree unleashed by Indian troops has called for resolving the Kashmir dispute as per relevant UN resolutions.

The APHC in a statement issued in Srinagar reiterated the pledge to continue the Kashmir liberation movement despite Indian brutalities.

The statement paid glowing tributes to Shopian and other martyrs, adding that the sacrifices of the Kashmiri martyrs would not go waste.

The APHC saluted the steadfastness of illegally detained Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Masarrat Aalam Butt, Muhammad Yasin Malik and Shabbir Ahmad Shah, and urged the international human rights organizations to put pressure on India to release the detainees.

Indian forces’ personnel launched widespread cordon and search operations in different areas of Srinagar, Baramulla, Badgam, Bandipore, Islamabad, Shopian and Pulwama districts making life of ordinary Kashmiris a hell.
