Srinagar, June 20 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, expressing deep concern over the stepped up Indian state terrorism has urged the United Nations and UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to take cognizance of the gross human rights violations being perpetrated by the Indian troops in the territory.
According to media sources, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “Authorities in Delhi through their military might seem desperate to cow down our spirits. However all the follies played by them will culminate in their defeat. Representing the sentiments and aspirations of people, it has remained our stance and we have been saying that we will never succumb to any pressure and will take the ongoing freedom movement to its logical end.” The APHC Chairman said that India and its puppet authorities were killing innocent youth and inflicting brutalities on the people of the occupied territory. Referring to the illegally detained Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Aasiya Andrabi, and her associates including Fehmeeda Sofi, he hailed the contribution of the ailing leaders and said that the puppet authorities without any legal justification were prolonging their unlawful detention. Syed Ali Gilani condemned the authorities for repeatedly slapping draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA), on senior resistance leader, Masarrat Aalam Butt. “Slapping Masarrat Aalam with PSA on fake grounds and prolonging his detention is condemnable,” he said. He termed the illegal detention of Hurriyat leaders, Mir Hafeezullah and Ameer Hamza Shah, as political vengeance. He also denounced the nocturnal raids by the Indian police on the residence of Hurriyat leader, Bashir Ahmed Qureshi, and harassment of his family members. Syed Ali Gilani said that unjustified detention and other brutal tactics would not be able to cow down the spirits of the resistance leaders. KASHMIR VOICE
Srinagar, June 20 (Kashmir Voice): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown will be observed, tomorrow, against the continued killing spree by the Indian troops in the territory.
According to media sources, call for the shutdown has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik. It also aimed at registering protest against the cold-blooded murder of veteran Kashmiri journalist, Shujaat Bukhari.
The resistance leaders in a joint statement issued in Srinagar said that the occupied territory had witnessed a sudden spike since the Eid day. Eight youth had been brutally martyred so far by the Indian forces while an injured was struggling for life at a hospital in Srinagar. Scores of people have also been critically injured many in their eyes as bullets and pellets had been used unrestrained. The leaders said that the cordon and search operations had returned with a vengeance to the villages especially in South Kashmir during which people were being beaten and harassed. “In Pampore once again an incident of using four civilians as human shields during CASO has also surfaced while 14 young boys have been forcibly picked up by the forces during nocturnal raids at their home in Pulwama. The forces’ personnel raided many houses including that of a senior journalist Syed Tajammul Imran in Shopian and harassed the inmates and this ugly phenomenon is continuing unabated,” they added. The resistance leaders strongly denouncing the brutalities of the Indian forces reiterated that the policy of repression through use of force and military power being adopted by India in occupied Kashmir was no solution to the problem at hand and it was bound to fail. They also demanded an international probe into the gruesome murder of Shujaat Bukhari. They appreciated the contribution of the journalist fraternity in occupied Kashmir regarding the ongoing freedom movement. KASHMIR VOICE
