Sehrai’s case demands international intervention in India’s judiciary: Kayani


The President of Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK, Fahim Kayani, has said that the custodial murder of iconic Hurriyat leader, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, on May 05 last year is a glaring example that India’s so-called justice system is part of illegal military regime in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

Fahim Kayani addressing a press conference in London in connection with the first martyrdom an-niversary of Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai said the Indian judiciary is an inseparable part of illegal military occupation in IIOJK.

“The judges installed in IIOJK give legal cover to war crimes, crimes against humanity committed by Indian occupying forces which is a blatant violation of international law and demands that the United Nations must stand up and intervene and compel India to deliver justice to people,” said Kayani, while addressing a commemoration event.

Highlighting the differential treatment meted out to cases linked to the Kashmir freedom movement, Kayani said, Kashmiris have no faith in the so-called judiciary of India as this judicial system is part of the military regime that illegally occupied Kashmir and the same judicial system gives legal cover to this illegal occupation.

“This is Kangaroo court system in India where anyone who seeks freedom for Kashmir under UN resolutions is being targeted by the military regime and then these courts give legal cover to put these voices of conscience in jails,” said the Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK leader.

This system, Kayani said, shows that India is witnessing a collapse of the justice system. “There is total collapse of the universal justice system in India which needs intervention of international actors to ensure that common people are not discriminated against,” he said.

Kayani said Kashmiris across the world demand that the custodial murder case of Shaheed Ashraf Sehrai should be investigated by the International Criminal Court and other international rights bodies. Referring to an Indian court ruling that those who write that Kashmir is under illegal occupation of India will not be guarded under universal freedom of speech, Kayani said, “Kashmir is a universally accepted dispute and this ruling is a slap on the international community. Is India bigger than the UN, and 194 nations of this biggest multi-lateral body?—KMS
