In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDP) has expressed deep concern over the recent enforcement of arbitrary laws and killings by the Indian forces in the territory.
The DFP spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the rapidly changing realities in the region also indicated the need for an immediate solution to the Kashmir dispute.
The tug-of-war between the world powers within the region has escalated to such an extent that a dispute like Kash-mir could lead to war at any time, he added.
At a time when European and Western countries are working through understanding and dialogue to find solutions to their small and big problems, the problems in the Indian subcontinent are left linger-ing since decades together.
With the result not only India and Pakistan but also other countries in the region are facing countless obstacles in the way of human development, he lamented.
The spokesman urged China and Russia to focus on finding a peaceful solution to all the issues around them, including Kashmir, so that the coun-tries of the region could get out of the situation of constant tension and address the developmental issues, especially in the health sector, on a priority basis.
He expressed concern over the fact that India is enforcing cruel laws in IIOJK aimed at keeping the freedom-loving people under constant pressure.
Recently, New Delhi has unveiled another face of its imperialist face by enforcing oppressive laws to retire government employees, withheld their salaries and to keep them silent on the authorities’ anti-people policies, he added.
At the same time, he said, on a daily basis, the process of killings the freedom-loving youth has been intensified, which has made the common people suffer psychologically.
The spokesman paid rich tributes to those mar-tyred recently by Indian forces in nook and corner and expressed solidarity with their parents.
He said that every person of Kashmir is indebted to the mar-tyrs and political prisoners whose unforgettable sacrifices have kept the candle of freedom move-ment burning.
He appealed to justice-loving institutions and personalities around the world to do their part in restoring the political rights of oppressed Kashmiris.
