APHC, others warn Modi of tough response against ban

Srinagar, August 22 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations while strongly reacting to the reports about possible ban on the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq by the Modi-led fascist Indian government have said that the Indian authorities are trying to silence Kashmir’s freedom voice by defaming Hurriyat camp.

The Hurriyat leaders and organizations in their separate statements issued in Srinagar said that Hurriyat is struggling for right of self-determination guaranteed by the world community under UN resolutions and as per aspirations of the Kashmiri people. They cautioned the Modi government not to take any action otherwise it will have to face the music in the territory.

The All Parties Hurriyat Conference spokesman in reaction to the possible move by the Modi government said that there was absolutely no truth in the false allegations by India against the conglomerate and its struggle was always peaceful and transparent. He criticized India for preparing to declare it banned and said the regime has threatened to arrest a large number of its workers and members in and around the territory. The spokesman said that killing of many youth and torching of houses of innocent people during the last 24 hours should be taken note of and the UN should not allow Delhi to ban peaceful activities by the Hurriyat in Kashmir.

Tehreek-e-Hurriyet Jammu and Kashmir asked India and its collaborators in Jammu and Kashmir to refrain from policies that would earn for them the wrath of the masses in the disputed territory and world over. The Tehreek-e-Hurriyet made it clear that Hurriyet came into being in 1993 to spearhead the movement for achieving Kashmiris’ right to self determination in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions. “Indian crimes against humanity, curbs on freedom of press, speech and assembly cannot go unnoticed,” it said and added that India in a bid to silence the voice of people of Jammu Kashmir, plans to ban the legitimate and internationally recognized Hurriyat conglomerate but it will prove to be the final nail in India’s coffin in Kashmir. It has the potential to mobilize masses against Indian occupation and highhandedness worldwide.

It said that Anjuman Sharie Shian believes that the Kashmir dispute is a reality and peace and development cannot be materialized without addressing the issue. The Anjuman stressed both India and Pakistan to initiated dialogue for settlement of the Kashmir dispute.
