J&K’s final status yet to be settled: APHC

Srinagar—All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Tuesday said that Jammu and Kashmir even before 1947 was not a part of India and will never be an integral part of India. It is a disputed territory, the final status of which has yet to be determined in accordance with several resolutions of the UN Security Council and as per the the wishes and aspirations of the people who are its inhabitants.
The conglomerate said the first Prime Minister of India, Late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had accepted this reality and promised the people of J&K at the historic Lal Chowk their right to self determination,and reiterated this promise to the world community at the United Nations.
So the the statement of Indian External Affairs Minister,Ms Sushma Swaraj backtracking from India’s commitment to the same UN and instead justifiying India’s military occupation of kashmir by calling it an “integral part” is unfortunate and misleading and does no good to India’s credentials of being the “world’s largest democracy”.
The statement of Ms Swaraj, was also an attempt to deflect the world attention from state terrorism and grave human right violations being committed against the people of J&K by the Indian state and its agencies,especially in the past three months, to crush the peoples struggle for self determination.
Despite GOI efforts the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) has issued a very strong statement regarding the human rights situation in the valley asking India “what precisely are you hiding from us?” and placed India in the bracket of countries which are witnessing large scale human rights violations like Syria and do not allow UN mission teams to visit their countries.
Meanwhile, APHC condemned the use of excessive force on the peaceful protest demonstrations at 90 Feet Road at Soura and Awantibawan areas where many persons including a woman was injured in the shelling and violence unleashed by government forces.—Email
