Srinagar, April 19 (Kashmir Voice): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the International Forum for Justice and Human Rights Jammu and Kashmir (IFJHRJK) has criticised the administration for allowing a gathering of 100 people while shutting down schools and colleges and asking people to pray inside homes.
According to media sources, the IFJHRJK Chairman, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo in a statement issued in Srinagar lashed out at the Mayor of Srinagar Municipal Corporation, who in a presser asked people to restrict themselves at homes while allowing gatherings of 100 people in public places and gardens.
He said, the Mayor should focus on his domain of maintaining cleanliness in the city rather than lecturing people about the SOPs of Covid as this is the job of the administration and the health experts.
Ahsan Untoo said, this makes no sense that the administration has shut down schools, colleges and universities and while allowing gatherings of 100 people. “This is absurd and will not help in coping with the dangerous spike in coronavirus pandemic,” he added. He said that the surge in coronavirus cases is being driven to a significant degree by casual occasions. He said that the travellers were not tested at the airport and were allowed to Srinagar. He said there have many other cases where Kashmiri businessmen came in contact with the Indian travellers and later tested positive for the virus. “The administration should focus on stopping the travellers into Kashmir with a mandatory covid test,” he maintained.

Srinagar, April 19 (Kashmir Voice): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference Chairman Shabbir Ahmed Dar has expressed grave concern over the rising graph of human rights abuses by Indian forces against Kashmiris, particularly women and children in Kashmir.
According to media sources, Shabbir Ahmad Dar in a statement issued in Srinagar said, the occupational forces are trampling every institution of civility and morality by targeting innocent women.
“The women are arrested on frivolous charges and inhuman laws like UAPA are used to deny them the right to bail creating lawlessness in every nook and corner of the territory,” he added.
The protest by women to stop Indian forces from entering their houses is ground for arrest, he said and added that this arbitrary action by the puppet administration speaks volumes about the state of affairs and the situation in IIOJK, he added. Shabbir Ahmad Dar urged the international community to intervene and stop India from inhuman acts of state terrorism. KASHMIR VOICE
Srinagar, April 19 (Kashmir Voice): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami has expressed grave concern over the rising Indian state terrorism in Kashmir saying that Narendra Modi’s fascist government is violating the Universal Charter of Human Rights to force the Kashmiris to give up their justice-based struggle for rights.
According to media sources, a spokesman for Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami in a statement issued in Srinagar said that Indian occupational troops had intensified their atrocities in the territory where infants, women and the elderly are also being targeted to intimidate freedom-loving Kashmiris. He said that black laws were being imposed even on women for speaking out against the atrocities committed by Indian troops, while young people were being brutally tortured in front of their mothers during night raids on their houses.
The spokesman said that UN human rights experts had expressed grave concern over human rights violations in occupied Jammu and Kashmir in several letters to the Indian government. They sought clarification but the Modi government did not respond to a single letter which is a clear indication of its arrogance and stubbornness. The spokesman said that the occupation administration was tightening its grip on journalists in IIOJK with each passing day to cover up its crimes against humanity. He said that the recent IGP’s order to stop journalists from reporting on the sites of so-called siege and search operations was a blatant attack on press freedom. He said that it was the responsibility of the United Nations and the international community to bring India to book for serious crimes against humanity in the internationally recognized disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir.
