Hurriyat leaders and organizations in Indian Occupied Kashmir on Monday while paying rich tributes to the nine Kashmiri youth, martyred by Indian troops in Shopian district, have sought the intervention of the United Nations on urgent basis to stop bloodshed in the territory.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Jammu and Kashmir Youth Social Forum (JKYSF) Chairman Umar Aadil Dar in a statement in Srinagar said that insensitivity of the world towards the innocent killings was the main reason for the unabated bloodshed.
He said that the youth were sacrificing their blood for the settlement of the long-pending Kashmir dispute and the people were indebted to these martyrs for their ultimate sacrifice. “It is the collective responsibility of the people of Kashmir and the leadership to take the ongoing movement to its ultimate destination,” he stressed.
Tehreek-e-Mazhamat General Secretary Mohammad Saleem Zargar in a statement in Srinagar expressed grave concern over the stepped-up human rights violations and killing of Kashmiri youth by the Indian forces in Kashmir. “The deteriorating human rights situation and genocide of Kashmiri youth must serve as an eye-opener for the world community,” he said.
“The systematic killing of Kashmiri youth by Indian forces is part of India’s nefarious design to alter the demography of the disputed territory”, he said adding that fast spreading structures of violence in the shape of sprawling army camps were posing a serious threat to lives of common people in Kashmir,” he added.
Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami, in a statement issued in Srinagar, condemning the killing of innocent Kashmiris in Shopian areas by Indian occupational troops, said that the Kashmiri people were being subjected to worst human rights’ violations for demanding their universally recognized right to self-determination.

The Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Young Men’s League, Zahid Ashraf, in a statement condemned the occupation regime for the bloody outrage at Rebbun, Shopian. He emphasized the fact that such attitude would only be disastrous for the mankind and could push the world towards a horrible catastrophe.
Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League Vice Chairman Aijaz Rehmani in a statement also denounced Indian forces for the killings. As the world continues to express outrage at the brutal death of African American George Floyd in the US, Kashmir Council Europe (KC-EU) Chairman Ali Raza Syed has urged the global community — particularly the European Union — to also pay special attention to the “violently discriminated behaviour” of Indian authorities with the people of India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Syed’s remarks came during the launching ceremony of the Kashmir Council’s yearly activities at the Brussels press club.
Condemning the brutal death of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, Syed in a press conference said, “Let me begin with condolences for George Floyd‘s death […] the world must notice and react in the same manner to brutalities committed by Indian security forces against oppressed people of Jammu and Kashmir and as well as violently discriminated behaviour with the minorities in India.”—KMS
