In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has expressed its grave concern over the unabated killing spree, random detentions and incessant intimidation of the Kashmiri people during the widespread cordon and search operations in the garb of so-called Independence Day preparations in the territory at the hands of Indian occupation forces.
APHC Jammu region President, Shahid Saleem in a statement issued in Jammu while denouncing the gross violation of fundamental rights of the people said that the freedom loving people of Kashmir have earned a moral victory by observing Indian Independence Day as a Black Day and imposed civil curfew despite all-out repressive measures adopted by Indian forces in the territory.
“The overwhelming enthusiasm displayed by the brave people of Kashmir daring worst type of military siege of India has frustrated its one million occupation forces who are engaged in a war against the common masses,” added the statement.
The Hurriyat leader urged the United Nations Council for Human Rights and other International human rights Organizations to take serious cognizance of the deteriorating human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir and the use of brute force, draconian laws and other coercive measures taken by the Indian fascist regime to suppress the freedom sentiments of the people of Kashmir demanding their inalienable right to self determination.
The statement demanded early intervention by the United Nations to stop unabated human rights abuses by Indian occupation forces with impunity.
He said that it is the moral, political and legal obligation of the United Nations to impress upon India to fulfill its commitment regarding the United Nations Security Council resolutions to allow a free and fair plebiscite for a peaceful resolution of Kashmir dispute.—KMS
