Muzaffarabad—The Acting President Shah Ghulam Qadir has urged the international community, media and human rights organizations to put pressure on India to stop atrocities and human rights abuses against people of Jammu and Kashmir in IHK.
Talking to an 8-member German Media delegation here on Friday, he said civilized nations should fulfill responsibility in helping people of J&K get their right to self-determination in accordance with the UN charter and resolutions. India had enslaved Kashmiris through military might for the past seven decades, he added. He said brute blood line had divided the Kashmiri families of AJK and IHK which had no legal, constitutional or moral legitimacy.
Shah said new generation of Kashmiris had risen against Indian forces and had been protesting peacefully for their liberation. India was trying to suppress them to quell their uprising, he added. The valley had been witnessing curfew for more than 70 days which had increased the sufferings of the people there, he remarked. He said the Kashmiri youth were being killed systematically.
