Kashmir settlement vital for durable peace in region: DFP

Srinagar, August 30 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has said that settlement of the long-pending Kashmir dispute is vital for durable peace in the region.

The DFP spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar deplored that the India forces were on a killing spree in IIOJK and were giving the impression that the entire Kashmiri people were moving around with arms.

He said, the fact is that India’s one million armed forces have turned the territory into hell. He added, anyone who tries to speak out against India’s colonial and imperialistic tactics is either killed or brought under the toughest black laws.

The spokesman said, the silence of the graveyard is being enforced by implementing stringent laws like Public Safety Act (PSA) and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). Even now, thousands of freedom lovers, including DFP chief, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, are facing the toughest hardships in remote jails. New Delhi, on the other hand, has launched a vicious propaganda campaign against the Kashmiri people to deceive its own people and the world community, he deplored.

He said that at a time when there was an air of conflict resolution all over the world, India was constantly denying the human and political rights of the people of IIOJK. The peace-loving people of Kashmir hope that thje international organizations will play their part in restoring the rights of Kashmiri people by their direct and practical intervention, he maintained.
