Mirwaiz raps sacrilege of Jamia Mosque
SYED HAMEED SHAHEEN
A highly hostile impression is reigning across the globe today regarding Kashmir particularly in the democratic world that democracies of the world have failed to solve the blood-&-bones Kashmir dispute. Some noted personalities talking to Pakistan Observer here Saturday were of the view that if the powerful countries, those having nukes, could not take even an inch ahead for the solution of bloody Kashmir issue, they are justifying that even the weaker nations must manufcuture or acquire nukes arms. Kashmir unsolved is hanging between two countries at the contiquity of China, the globl power, reports said on Saturday.
Reports reaching here Saturday say that Chairman of Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has once again urged the world human rights organizations to take notice of Indian state terrorism and put dissuade Delhi from butchering poor Kashmiris who were promised by UN SC right to self-determine their political destiny.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement issued in Srinagar in connection with the World Human Rights Day being observed today deplored that the puppet authorities deploy heavy contingents of Indian forces around Jamia Masjid Srinagar on every Friday to prevent youth from offering prayers.
He said that the biggest irony was the silence adopted by the international human rights organisations towards the grave rights violations committed by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.
He said, the world is observing Human Rights Day, today and the international rights groups would be busy in highlighting the issues of rights violations taking places everywhere in the world but Kashmir is an exception and perhaps the only place in the world where oppression and the worst form of rights violations goes unnoticed.
The Mirwaiz said, “Draconian laws like Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), Public Safety Act (PSA) and Disturbed Areas Act (DAA) continue to remain in vogue to give impunity to Indian forces to kill and torture anybody.”
Criticizing the PDP-BJP regime, the Hurriyet forum Chairman said after keeping the Jamia Masjid closed for 19 consecutive Fridays, the authorities are now enacting a drama by allowing him just to give Friday sermon. “I am set free for two hours only. When I reach back home from Jamia Masjid, I am again placed under house arrest. This drama is enacted to give an impression of normalcy,” he said.
Referring to the killing of four youth by Indian troops in Arwani area of Islamabad district, the Mirwaiz said, “What is most worrying and painful is that our young generation is systematically being eliminated. The oppression of military power ruling the territory along with its local actors has pushed the youth to wall.”
“Youth who are facing extreme suppression are caught between devil and deep sea. Either they get killed as protestors on the streets or they are killed in stage-managed encounters,” he deplored.
