APHC condemns vilification campaign against Hurriyat leaders

Srinagar, September 09 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has strongly condemned the vilification campaign of the Indian agencies, paid media and the fascist RSS elements in the territory to malign the Hurriyat leaders.

APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar challenged the Indian agencies and the RSS elements to face the people of Kashmir in an open air and lift restrictions on the freedom of expression, association and assembly of people then they would know the roots of these leaders.

He said that the new office-holders of APHC, appointed after the martyrdom of Syed Ali Gilani, would be firm to follow the ideology of the veteran martyred leader.

The spokesman urged the United Nations to play its part in giving relief of civil liberties to the people and setting at liberty all the  illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists, including the APHC new Chairman, Masarrat Aalam Butt and Vice Chairman, Shabbir Ahmad Shah.

Meanwhile, APHC-AJK leader and the Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement, Abdul Majeed Mir in a statement issued in Islamabad said, the unresolved Kashmir dispute poses a threat to the regional peace. He deplored that the UN and the world powers had either forgotten the Kashmir dispute or they were deliberately ignoring it. He said that Kashmir was one of the oldest unresolved disputes on the agenda of the UN due to India’s stubborn attitude.
