‘Indian troops martyred thousands of Kashmiris

40

 

Indian troops in their continued acts of state terrorism have martyred over 96,000 Kashmiris including 7245 in custody since January 1989 till date.

The troops have martyred 121 Kashmiris in custody since India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5th August 2019.

Recently, a 21-year-old Muslim Muneer was summoned to the Nowgam Police Station, Srinagar, and was later dropped home dead by Indian police. His mother, Shafiqa, has filed a petition before a local court in Srinagar seeking a probe into the custodial killing of their son by Indian police.

According to the petition, Shafiqa also added that she was forcibly made to sign a blank paper. The petition sought directions to the Station House Officer (SHO) Crime Branch, Srinagar to lodge an FIR under relevant provisions of law against the involved persons and all other unidentified police officials who tortured Muslim Muneer.

The petition reads, “There were visible marks of violence and torture seen on the body of the said deceased which makes it clear that the deceased son of the applicant was brutally murdered in the police custody.

The family said that the police officials to cover up the involved persons have assassinated the character of the Muslim by dubbing him a drug addict in a presser.

India must realize that the use of brutal force against the Kashmiri people, extra-judicial killings, custodial torture and deaths, forced disappearances, incarceration of Kashmiri leadership and youth, and other methods of subjugation have failed in the past and will not succeed in the future.

Through a dossier unveiled last year, Pakistan has provided to the world incontrovertible evidence of the gross and systemic oppression and human rights violations by the Indian occupation forces in the IIOJK.

The international community should hold India responsible for its brazen suppression of innocent Kashmiris and play its due role in ensuring a just and peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.—KMS
