In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference President for Jammu province, Mir Shahid Saleem, has expressed deep concern over the deteriorating geo-political and socio-economic condition of the territory.
Mir Shahid Saleem in a statement issued in Jammu said that the ill designs of the Modi-led fascist Indian government have been exposed before the people of Kashmir belonging to different religions, regions and communities.
The APHC leader denounced the fragmentation of a disputed territory against the will of its people, deprivation of the political space and rights to the resistance leadership, division of the social ethos on the basis of communal hatred and breaking the backbone of economy by imposing strict curfews and lockdowns in the garb of Covid 19 pandemic by Modi regime.
He said, all efforts are being made to create a wedge between different religions, regions and communities by spreading fabricated rumours, day in and day out.
Mir Shahid Saleem urged the freedom-loving Kashmiri people to remain vigilant about the nefarious designs of India and stand united to fight the Indian imperialism and its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
The APHC leader condemned the recent custodial killings in Sopore and Srinagar and said the Indian forces are showering bullets on the civil population of Kashmir as if they are on a hunting expedition in the territory.
He urged the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, to take cognizance of the happenings in the occupied territory where the people have been deprived of the basic fundamental rights enjoyed by the people living in a free atmosphere in the modern world.
Mir Shahid Saleem stressed on an early settlement of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people so that permanent peace could be established in the region.—KMS
