JKNF hails UN rapporteurs’ assertions on Sehrai’s custodial killing


Jammu and Kashmir National Front (JKNF) has welcomed the four UN Special Rapporteurs’ re-marks regarding the custodial killing of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman Shaheed Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai and illegal arrest of his sons after his funeral.

According to Kashmir Media Service, terming it as a sign of growing realization at global level about the worsening situation in the occupied Kashmir, the National Front spokesman Shafiq-ur-Rehman said that the UN special Rapporteurs’ official com-munication to the government of India serves as a bill of indictment against the BJP government’s dodgy and destructive role in Kashmir.

Referring to use and abuse of power by the In-dian occupation authorities, the spokesman said that the authorities at the helm of affairs were shame-lessly using black laws such as PSA, UAPA and others to intimidate, harass and humiliate Kash-miris.

He said that Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman’s death in Kotbhalwal jail in Jammu and arrest of his two sons after the funeral speaks volumes about the occupation authorities’ callous difference towards the sufferings of Kashmiri people who he said were not allowed to mourn the death of their beloved ones.

Citing the UNCIP resolutions, the spokesman said that the Indian government has miserably failed in fulfilling the responsibilities it had assumed under the UNCIP resolutions vis-à-vis protecting the lives of Kashmiri people. —INP
