In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior Hurriyat leader, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt, has called for resolving the Kashmir dispute through meaningful and result-oriented dialogue process among Pakistan, India and the real Kashmiri leadership for ensuring permanent peace in the region.
Professor Abdul Ghani Butt addressing public meetings in Pampore area of Pulwama said, the entire South Asia is in danger of war which will, if happens, devastate the whole world, particularly the region. He maintained that India should shun its hegemonic attitude and accept the harsh reality of Kashmir as a dispute and settle it through a dialogue process. Professor Butt said that the international community had a moral duty and responsibility to put pressure on New Delhi to resolve the Kashmir dispute according to the aspirations of the Kashmiri people. He added that the Kashmiris are rendering sacrifices for a sacred cause which will be rewarded in the form of freedom.
The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement, Khawaja Firdous, addressing a gathering at Nagbal in Srinagar paid rich tributes to the martyrs of Aali Kadal.
He maintained that the Kashmir people would not allow the sacrifices of their martyrs go waste and would accomplish their mission at all costs.
Moreover, at a panel discussion, international experts on genocidal violence warned the impending danger of ‘genocide’ of India’s 200 Million Muslims under the watch of present Indian regime. They alerted the international community to wake up to this lurking danger as unfolding situation in India is grim.
The panel discussion on “Ten Stages of Genocide and India’s Muslims,” expressed an urgent need to not only’ indict and sanction’ the Indian government, but to also expose it in the international community to prevent crimes against humanity. The discussion was organized by the Indian American Muslim Council.
In his opening remarks, Dr Gregory Stanton said, “Preparation for genocide is definitely under way in India.” He explained, “The persecution of Muslims in Assam and Kashmir is the stage just before genocide. The next stage is extermination—that’s what we call genocide.”
Dr Stanton is the founder-president of Genocide Watch, an organization that works to predict, prevent and stop genocide and other forms of mass murder in the world.
He also served in the US State Department in the 1990s when he drafted the UN Security Council resolutions that created the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.
He stated that the “systematic crimes against humanity is already underway” in India.—KMS
