“Such systematic oppressive policy of New Delhi aimed at stabbing, crushing and silencing the popular ongoing movement for right to self-determination will never succeed,” he said.

“While the whole world has come to the rescue of India with the intent of saving Indian people from the contagious dreaded effects of pandemic it was time for India to give due consideration to saving human lives in occupied Kashmir,” he added.

Naqash appealed to the world conscience to Impress upon India to release the Kashmiri prisoners in the interest of humanity.

Meanwhile, a JKIPP leader, Syed Mushtaq Hussain, in a statement lamented the transfer of imprisoned freedom loving leaders and activists from various jails of IIOJK to Haryana jails in India.

Employees’ Joint Action Committee (EJAC) taking a strong note of the expulsion of a Muslim teacher from government service on baseless charges in a statement said the decision is partial and biased. The amalgam president, Fayaz Shabnum has described this decision as unilateral.

“It is a partial decision and biased too where an employee is dismissed from his service and not allowed to put his point across or clear his stand.
