In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir Kashmir, APHC leaders have said that the women across the world are observing International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, today, while the victim and oppressed women of Kashmir have nothing to commemorate.
APHC leaders Zamruda Habib and Yasmeen Raja in their separate statements issued in Srinagar said that the world was talking about the empowerment of women but the women in Kashmir were facing injustice, humiliation, harassment and pain every day.
Killing and illegal detention of youth has become a routine in Kashmir while thousand are lodged in different Indian jails and IIOJK without committing any serious crime and their mothers are waiting for their release, the statements added.
They expressed serious concern over the continued illegal detention of Hurriyat leaders including Aasiya Andrabi, Fahmeeda Sofi, Naheeda Nasreen, Insha Tariq and others languishing in jails on fake charges.
The leaders appealed to the world human rights bodies to take notice of the plight of Kashmiris political detainees.—KMS
