Free incarcerated Kashmiri leaders

THERE is no letup in the Indian brutalities in the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmiri.

Hundreds of thousands of Kashmiri people including their leadership have been languishing under squalid conditions in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic in {in-}famous Tihar and other jails.

In the month of May, Senior Kashmiri leader Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, who challenged India’s rule over occupied Kashmir for decades, died whilst in police custody. Nobody knows how many others have died in the illegal detention

. These Kashmiri leaders have been illegally arrested over malicious, false and fabricated charges by the Indian government through invoking draconian laws.

The health of many detained Kashmiri leaders such as that of Yasin Malik is very serious and they are not being provided with the required medical treatment.

Mushaaal Hussein Mullick, the wife of Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Yasin Malik, in a statement the other day stated that Malik is suffering from several ailments, including heart disease, kidney stones and a backache but he was deprived of much needed medicines.

She feared that Yasin Malik might be tortured to death because the fascist Indian government has nothing to prove him guilty despite using all state machinery.

It is an open secret that Yasin Malik and other leaders are being denied a fair trial as the aim of the occupation authorities is only to muzzle their voice.

Imprisoning and torturing Kashmiri leaders on the basis of their political ideology and struggle against illegal Indian occupation is a true reflection of the extremist mindset of the RSS-BJP regime which has no respect for the human rights of the Kashmiri people.

With such brutal tactics, the Indian government has not succeeded nor will succeed in future to suppress the will of Kashmiri people and leaders for their right to self determination.

The world must not turn its back to what is happening in the occupied valley.

The international community particularly the United Nations and human rights organizations should take immediate notice of the Indian government’s inhuman treatment of the Kashmiri leaders and raise its voice for their immediate release from illegal detention.
