Indian forces’ atrocities in IIOJK condemned

26

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Employees Movement (JKEM), a constituent of All Parties Hurriyat Con-ference (APHC), has strongly condemned the atroci-ties committed by Indian forces in the territory.

The JKEM spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said, the indiscriminate firing by the brute Indian forces, resulting in the deaths of youth, is a glaring example of the brutality and inhuman treat-ment towards the oppressed Kashmiris.

He said, the people of IIOJK are demanding their birthright to self-determination and the Kash-miris are rendering sacrifices for freedom from the Indian subjugation which will not go waste.

The spokesman deplored that in the garb of dra-conian Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), the brutal forces of India were playing with the lives of innocent people, which was the worst example of state terrorism.

He lamented that when the whole world was facing COVID-19 and hundreds of humans lost their lives globally, the Modi-led fascist Indian govern-ment was busy in making anti-Kashmiri and anti-Muslim plots.

The spokesman appealed to the international human rights organisations to take cognizance of the plight of the Kashmiri detainees and impress upon New Delhi to release them forthwith.

Moreover, Indian police arrested two Kashmiri youth in south Kahsmir’s Shopian district on Sun-day.

A police spokesperson in a statement issued in Srinagar said that youth Shahid Ahmad Gaine and Kifayat Ayoub Ali were arrested at Doomwani near Rambi Ara.

“Police along with Indian Army’s 44 Rashtriya Rifles and 14 battalion Central Reserve Police Force launched a joint cordon and search operation in the area amid specific information about the presence of the militants,” the police spokesperson claimed.—KMS
