Srinagar, September 23 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has welcomed the statement of Pakistan Prime Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, at the UNGA wherein he raised Indian atrocities in the occupied territory and called for peaceful and early settlement the Kashmir dispute.
According to media sources, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement issued in Srinagar said, Pakistan has always raised the Kashmir dispute at international forums and advocated its settlement in accordance with the Kashmiris’ will and aspirations. He said the people of Kashmir deeply appreciate the diplomatic and moral support extended by Pakistan to their just cause. He said that as far as Kashmiri people and leadership were concerned, they had always wished for better and cordial relationship between India and Pakistan and sought resolution of all issues including the Kashmir conflict through dialogue. “New Delhi should realize that a military approach and use of brute force can never resolve the Kashmir issue, which is a political and a human issue and needs to be addressed through a bold approach and a meaningful dialogue process among all stakeholders – India, Pakistan and the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” he said. The Mirwaiz also thanked the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states for their full support to the Kashmiris’ just struggle for securing their right to self-determination at a recent OIC foreign ministers’ meet. He also thanked the OIC for inviting him to attend the meet which he couldn’t because of denial of travel documents by the Indian authorities. The Mirwaiz also castigated New Delhi for adopting double-standards while dealing with the Rohingya Muslims and asked that if Chakma and Tibet people are treated as refugees, what makes the Muslims of Myanmar illegal immigrants. He said it is sad that Rohingya Muslims who are fleeing after being persecuted are branded as illegal immigrants by the government of India. KASHMIR VOICE
Srinagar, September 23 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, Indian police have prepared over 1,000 dossiers to detain people under draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), says a media report.
According to media sources, the PSA allows the authorities to imprison a person for up to two years without trial. The report published in a Srinagar-based English daily Greater Kashmir said that during the past three years 1,059 dossiers were prepared to detain people under the PSA. It said that the highest number (812) of PSA dossiers was created by the police in 2016, which witnessed mass uprising in the wake of extrajudicial killing of popular youth leader, Burhan Wani. During the previous two years the police had submitted 157 (in 2015) and 90 (in 2014) dossiers to the district magistrates concerned for approval, the report said. Under the law, the district magistrates and divisional commissioners are the authorities who can approve of or reject the police dossiers. The rampant use of PSA, last year, came under severe criticism from global rights bodies. Enacted in the occupied territory in late 70s, the law had been rampantly used by the puppet authorities since 1989 when the Kashmiris intensified their ongoing liberation movement. From time to time, global rights bodies have urged the Indian government and its puppet authorities in occupied Kashmir to repeal the PSA. In 2011, the Amnesty International described the law as a “lawless law”. KASHMIR VOICE
