In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the People’s Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that the Government of India’s claim that the people of Kashmir enjoy equal rights is a “barefaced lie” and that the basic human rights of the people in J&K are suspended.
“GOI’s dubious claims that people of J-K now enjoy equal rights is a barefaced lie as truth is that even their basic human rights dead or alive are suspended with pervasive impunity,” Mehbooba said in a tweet.
She further said that the ease with which the government of India imposes a complete siege including a communications blackout in Kashmir every time it anticipates a reaction from people is distressing and deeply insensitive.
Following the death of senior resistance leader of Kashmir Syed Ali Gilani on Wednesday night, the authorities imposed a curfew and communication blackout..
Mehbooba, in her tweet, said that the government’s misadventure of creating fear and suppression to eliminate a sentiment is counterproductive since feelings and emotions don’t dissipate or vanish into thin air.
She added: “These feelings of betrayal, subjugation & anger are absorbed and passed on from one generation to the next.”
