In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement (DPM), has said that India is killing and torturing innocent youth in the territory and using all brutal tactics to suppress the Kashmir liberation movement. The DPM Chairman, Khawaja Firdous in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the Indian Army was arresting innocent youth during so-called cordon and search operations on daily basis.
He said, when the people peacefully protest against the cruel actions of Modi-led fascist government, they are subjected to brute force by the occupational troops. He added that India will never succeed in suppressing the Kashmiris’ ongoing liberation movement and they will continue their struggle till complete success.
The DPM Chairman expressed concern over the plight of Kashmiri political detainees languishing in jails and said that the jail authorities had deprived these prisoners of all basic facilities. He deplored that India was deliberately playing with the lives of the Kashmiri detainees. He said that illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists including Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Aasiya Andrabi, Naheeda Nasreen and Fehmeeda Sufi had been suffering from various ailments but they were not being provided medical facilities.
He called upon the world community and international human rights organizations to put pressure on India to stop rights violations in IIOJK and release the Kashmiri detainees from illegal detention.—KMS
