Srinagar, December 04 (KMS): The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has deplored that India is subjecting the people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to the worst brutalities for demanding their internationally-recognized right to self-determination.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said one million trigger-happy Indian troops deployed in IIOJK have been committing grave human rights violations in the territory for the last over seven decades with impunity, making the life of the besieged Kashmiris a hell.
He pointed out that the Indian atrocities on innocent Kashmiris have increased manifold since the Modi’s Hindutva government repealed the special status of IIOJK on August 05, 2019. He termed Kashmir a political and humanitarian dispute and appealed to the people who believe in human dignity to support the Kashmiris’ just struggle of right to self-determination.
The spokesman deplored that in the critical situation when life, honour, existence, culture and identity of the oppressed Kashmiris were at stake the criminal silence of the world was adding insult to the injury. It is the responsibility of people with conscience all over the world to raise their voice against the injustice in Kashmir, he maintained. The APHC appealed to the international community to hold India accountable for its brutal actions in the occupied territory.
Meanwhile, APHC leader and Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Social Peace Forum Advocate Davender Singh Behal in a statement in Jammu thanked Caretaker Prime Minister of Pakistan Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar for highlighting the Kashmir dispute on the sidelines of COP 28 in Dubai. He said Pakistan’s Prime Minister showed his resolve by stressing a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people and won the hearts of the Kashmiris in Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said Pakistan has always supported Kashmiris’ right to self-determination while India’s lack of political will and stubbornness has remained an impediment to settlement of the longstanding dispute.
He further stated that it is the responsibility of the International Community to bring India to the table for the peaceful resolution of the dispute.
