Senior APHC leader Nayeem Ahmed Khan on Saturday welcomed the recent report presented to Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council denouncing wide ranging atrocities being inflicted upon the people of the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK).

In a message from Tihar jail on Saturday, the incarcerated Hurriyat leader said that the report presented by the UN’s special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief was a true bill of indictment against India, which besides highlighting the other issues of concern takes the lid off the crimes Indian government and its forces have been committing against Kashmiris, says a report reaching here on Saturday from across the Line of Control.

The references made about the human rights situation in Kashmir, he said, serve as an eye-opener for the world and influential world governments who choose to stay silent on the Kashmiris’ sufferings. The APHC leader said that in light of the scathing report on the human rights situation in Kashmir there was a dire need of enhanced vigilance.
