Chairperson of Peace and Culture Organization (PCO), Mushaal Hussein Mullick, has slammed the fascist Narendra Modi-led Indian regime for arming and training 5,000-strong Hindu militia in line with notorious RSS militants in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to trigger a communal strife for diverting the world’s attention from Kashmir freedom movement.
Mushaal, who is wife of incarcerated senior Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik, in a statement issued in Islamabad, today, said that the notorious Indian authorities raised the Hindu militia to terrorize Muslims and suppress the Kashmiris’ ongoing freedom struggle. She said that the BJP was playing with fire by creating a pretext for religious conflict in IIOJK, as they wanted to further their divisive and blood-soaked agenda.
The PCO Chairperson said that the new militia units, known as Village Defense Guards, would only exacerbate Kashmir’s woes as such groups also raised in the 1990s were involved in ruthlessly killing of innocent Kashmiris, besides committing other heinous crimes including murder, rape and extortions. She added that the arming of Hindus with the criminal intent to quell the legitimate and rightful freedom struggle of the Kashmiri people would increase the communal tension in the disputed territory, which is the world’s most militarized zone.
The Hurriyat leader made it clear that New Delhi is mistaken if it thinks that relentless brutality can extinguish the Kashmiris’ desire for freedom. She advised the Indian government to accept the ground reality and acknowledge the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination instead of encouraging armed gangs and using the brute force to suppress their struggle because such brutal tactics have failed to work during the last over seven decades.
Mushaal maintained that the world powers and human rights organizations should now accept that Modi has a criminal mindset and he is a real and potent threat for regional as well as world peace. She said the G-20 countries should isolate Modi and boycott the meetings of the forum being hosted by his government in IIOJK. KMS—20M
