Intriguing silence of world community

THE latest flare up in IHK triggered by the extra judicial killing of a prominent freedom movement commander has claimed the lives of thirty two Kashmiri people in a the past three days. Indian troops are not even sparing hospitals and injured protestors in their killing spree – a catastrophe big enough to move any conscientious human being but unfortunately the international community is observing the same callous insensitivity as it has been adhering to over the past many decades over the plight of Kashmiri people.
As more reinforcements of troops have been called in the valley, it is not known how many more Kashmiri people will lose their lives in the latest hunting spree of Indian troops. Perturbed over the recent happenings in the held valley, Pakistan rightly lodged a strong protest with the Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan conveying its deep concerns over the killing of Kashmiri leader Burhan Wani and many other civilians. Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has also declared to raise the issue at the international forums. It is, however, disturbing that the Indian side is not ready to shun its intransigence and accept the ground realities on the disputed territory. Despite seven decades of brutalities, the Indian side has failed to understand that it can not suppress the freedom movement with the use of force. This movement directed towards securing the right to self determination actually runs into the very blood of every Kashmiri youth leaving no doubt in mind that it will continue as long as it does not reach the logical conclusion. Though India resorts to implicating Pakistan for Kashmiri uprising to hoodwink the international and blanket its state sponsored atrocities on innocent people, the continuity and determination with which the Kashmiri people are taking forward their mission clearly speaks of the indigenous nature of the movement. With regards to recent brutal human rights violations in the held valley, we will urge the so-called stalwarts of human equality and rights especially Washington to rise above their commercial and vested interests and impress upon India to stop bloodshed in the valley. Responsibility also rests with the UN to take notice of the heinous and terrible massacre of Muslim populace in occupied Kashmir and take genuine steps towards the just resolution of the lingering dispute as per the aspirations of the local population.
