Leaders speaking on the occasion said one fails to understand how the world community has given a free hand to India to snatch every right from the people, who are being subjected to worst state terrorism.
They said the so-called Indian democracy is scared of even women freedom activists and leaves no stone unturned to keep them behind bars on fictitious and false charges.
Leaders said these Kashmiri detainees are already suffering from many aliments and imprisonment in notorious jails like Tihar has put their lives at risk.
They appealed to the peace loving nations to come forward to rescue the subjugated people of Kashmir, who have been demanding their right to self-determination for the last over 7 decades.—KMS
