Srinagar, July 23 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has condemned the targeted surveillance on its Chairman and senior executive members Bilal Ghani Lone and Masroor Abbas Ansari by Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government.
The forum also denounced the hacking of phones of other Kashmiris including journalists, rights activists and businessmen.
The forum spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said the hacking of people’s phone for surveillance is a willful and direct violation of the universally acknowledged fundamental right to privacy, a basic human right, and those involved in it should be tried.
The statement said the Hurriyat forum acknowledges the fact that in IIOJK, basic human rights of an entire population remain suspended and the writ of the state rules with a heavy hand so the redressal of this issue – especially from those that are indulging in it – is very unlikely.
It said Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has been put under arbitrary house detention by the Indian government for the past two years without giving any reason. All his basic human rights already stand violated, it deplored.
