Incarcerated Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Masarrat Aalam Butt, has deplored that fascist India has waged an all-out war against the people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir but the international community has maintained criminal silence on the matter.

Masarrat Aalam Butt in a message sent from New Delhi’s infamous Tihar jail condemned the sealing of the residence of the icon of Kashmiri resistance, Shaheed Syed Ali Gilani, and hundreds of properties belonging to Jamaat-I-Islami (JI) by the Indian authorities.

He said Indian troops despite committing grave human rights violations including, killings, torture, arbitrary arrests, rape of women, and destruction of properties for the last several decades have failed to suppress the Kashmiris’ struggle for securing their right to self-determination. He maintained that the Kashmiri people will continue their struggle till they were given this inalienable right. “No power on earth can break resolve of Kashmiri people to continue resistance against Indian military might,” he added.

Masarrat Aalam Butt said, the Islamic republic of Pakistan, which is a legal party to the Kashmir dispute, must approach the UN Secretary General and ask him to force India to stop committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in IIOJK.

The APHC Chairman called upon the international community to take steps to protect the Kashmiri people from the Indian atrocities. He said, the international community needs to open its eyes and see impartially what is happening in the internationally-recognized disputed territory.—KMS
