Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred two innocent Kashmiri youth, today, in an extrajudicial manner in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The troops martyred the youth in a fake encounter during a so-called cordon and search operation in Yedipora Pattan area of Baramulla district. Local people said that the youth were arrested by the troops a few days ago and were martyred in a staged encounter, today. The troops also destroyed a residential house in the area. Separately, the troops carried out a so-called cordon and search operation and resorted to firing at Chitragam in Shopian district, creating panic in the area.
Meanwhile, the occupation authorities continued to keep senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, under house arrest and once again didn’t allow him to offer Juma prayers at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, today. The Mirwaiz is under house detention since August 05, 2019, when Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government repealed the special status of IIOJK.
Senior leader of National Conference, Hasnain Masoodi, speaking in an interactive session with legal experts and lawyers in Srinagar said the NC will continue its fight using all legal and democratic means for revocation of August 5, 2019 unconstitutional decisions of the Modi-led fascist Indian government.
On the other hand, the activists of Hindutva organization, Bajrang Dal, assaulted Muslim youth in Ahmedabad city of the Indian state of Gujarat for watching a traditional dance. Videos making rounds on social media show the Hindutva goons severely thrashing the Muslim youth. The incident reportedly occurred on Tuesday night but the police have so far failed to arrest the attackers.
The General Secretary of India’s leading human rights body People’s Union for Civil Liberties, V Suresh, in a statement issued in New Delhi terming as unconstitutional the banning of the Muslim organization Popular Front of India by the Indian government, demanded its revocation forthwith. He said tactics like bans, crackdowns, and arrests of the leaders and activists of PFI seem to be a ploy to create a sense of fear among the Muslims to intimidate them and keep them mum.—KMS
