In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has strongly condemned the upsurge in cordon and search opera-tions during the cold nights and days to suppress the freedom sentiments of the people of the territory.
The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar lashing out at the Indian occupation forces for their inhuman behaviour towards the besieged people during the military operations described the occupied territory as a big jail where its inmates are forced to live a life worse than the life of convicted criminals. He said that even the prisoners of war avail the facilities in accordance with the Interna-tional law but the people of Kashmir besieged by more than one million occupation forces of India are forced to live a hellish life under the shadow of an undeclared war against them by New Delhi.
The spokesman denounced the suppressive and oppressive measures by India to impose its Hindu-tua agenda, change the demography of the Muslim majority territory and do away with the ongoing resistance movement. He said that these farcical and theoretical gimmicks tried by India have miserably failed in Kashmir.
“The invincible and unwavering valour and pledge of the freedom loving people of Kashmir have time and again defeated the Indian military arrogance,” maintained the spokesman. Killing the people with impunity, arresting, torturing, maiming and humiliating them for their inalienable and le-gitimate right to self-determination have proved an exercise in futility for India. He added.
The spokesman urged India to shun its stub-bornness and accept the ground realities pertaining to the Kashmir dispute. He condemned the authori-ties for not allowing the Muslims to offer Friday prayers at Jamia Musjid Srinagar since 5th of Au-gust 2019 and termed it a brazen violation of reli-gious rights of the Muslims. The spokesman strongly condemned the continued house arrest of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and termed it as a sheer inter-ference and violation of religious matters and rights. The APHC spokesman urged the United Nations Secretary General to impress upon India to stop genocide in Kashmir and allow a free and fair plebi-scite in the territory in accordance with the United Nations Security Council resolutions.—KMS
