Moon Desk: In India illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, expressing serious concern over the miserable plight of unlawfully detained Kashmiris has demanded their release before Eid-ul-Fitr.
He saluted the determination, steadfastness, and passion of the Kashmiri detainees and said they are rendering unprecedented sacrifices for the right to self-determination. He called upon the people of the occupied territory to take care of the families of these unsung heroes and other victims of Indian state terrorism. The families of martyrs, detainees, and other victims are leading an agonizing life and it is our religious and moral obligation to help them in the hour of distress, he said.
The APHC leader commended the annual reports of Amnesty International and the US state department on human rights and termed these documents as charge sheets against India. He said these reports are a clear indication that the world is fully aware of Indian crimes in the occupied territory. He demanded of the world powers to take urgent and concrete steps to stop the Indian brutalities in IIOJK and make the culprits accountable.
Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar deplored that the Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government is hell-bent on imposing its devilish Hindutva agenda and changing the demography in IIOJK. He pointed out that the Modi regime is promoting the consumption of alcohol and drugs to ruin the future of the Kashmiri youth and drive them away from the ongoing freedom movement. He said every aspect of life for Muslims in IIOJK is under assault by BJP’s Hindutva government. He asked the people to remain vigilant of Indian conspiracies and demonstrate unity to defeat them.
The APHC leader said the Modi regime’s uni-lateral actions on August 05, 2019, opened a more brutal chapter in Kashmir’s history. “Every Indian action is aimed at eroding the culture, language, and religious identity of Muslims. Modi’s actions in IIOJK mimic Israeli settler policies in occupied Palestine. The BJP regime has intensified state terrorism to suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom movement. Indian brutal policies will only strengthen the Kashmiri Muslims’ resolve to resist its illegal occupation,” he added.
Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar also appealed to the UN, OIC, and world human rights organizations to take cognizance of the blatant human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian troops in the occupied territory.
Another APHC leader, Javaid Ahmed Mir, in a statement issued in Srinagar, said India is planning to organize the G20 meetings in IIOJK to mislead the world about the ground situation of the territory. He said the Modi government’s move is a grave violation of the UN Charter because such events cannot be held in an internationally-recognized disputed territory like Jammu and Kashmir. Javaid Mir said New Delhi is carrying out genocide in occupied Kashmir but the champions of human rights are watching as mute spectators. He added that the international community must impress upon India to resolve the Kashmir dispute as per the UN resolutions.
