APHC leaders express concern over grave HR abuses by Indian troops in IIOJK



The All Parties Hurriyat Conference leaders have expressed serious concern over the grave human rights violations perpetrated by Indian troops in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to suppress the Kashmiris’ just struggle for right to self-determination.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the APHC leaders in their statements and messages on the World Human Rights Day, today, said the whole world is observing the Human Rights Day but the besieged people of Kashmir are facing the worst Indian imperialism.

The World Human Rights Day is observed on December 10, every year, to mark the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) on this day in 1948 by the UN.

Senior APHC leader, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, in a statement in Srinagar said the World Human Rights Day has no meaning for the oppressed Kashmiris as they have been deprived of all their basic rights and freedoms enshrined in the UN charter. He said celebrating Human Rights Day is like rubbing salt on the bleeding wounds of Kashmiris as the UN has made no sincere effort to restore their rights and they continue to suffer under tyranny and subjugation. He deplored that over one million trigger-happy troops are committing heinous crimes against humanity in IIOJK to intimidate the Kashmiris into submission.

Illegally detained APHC leader, Molvi Bashir Ahmad Irfani, in his message from the jail said the grave human rights abuses by Indian troops in IIOJK are not only heart-wrenching but also an open violation of the UN charter. He called upon the international community and world human rights organizations to take cognizance of the Indian state terrorism in IIOJK and fulfill their responsibilities to ensure the protection of the basic rights of Kashmiris.

Incarcerated APHC leader, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, in his message from New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail said occupied Jammu and Kashmir is the only region of the world where the entire population has not only been deprived of all human rights due to the worst Indian oppression and oppression but also deprived of their right to be human beings. He said, this worst situation in IIOJK demands attention of all international bodies, including the United Nations, and the powerful countries of the world.

APHC leaders including Chaudhry Shaheen Iqbal, Ghulam Nabi War, Hakeem Abdul Rasheed and Mohammad Aqib in a joint statement expressed deep concern over the terrible situation of human rights in IIOJK. They appealed to the international community to take serious notice of the Indian brutalities on innocent Kashmiris.

APHC leaders, Khadim Hussain and Syed Sibte Shabbir Qumi in a statement in Srinagar said the Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government is flouting the International Declaration of Human Rights in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. They said that Indian troops have broken all previous records of grave human rights violations since August 5, 2019, when the fascist Indian government of Narendra Modi revoked the special status of the occupied territory. They said in this dire situation, it is the responsibility of the United Nations to hold India accountable for its crimes against humanity in the occupied territory and to put pressure on it to resolve the Kashmir dispute according to the UN resolutions and Kashmiris’ aspirations.—KMS
