Naqash hails UN team’s remarks about Sehrai’s custodial killing

Srinagar, September 12 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Chairman of Islamic Political Party Jammu and Kashmir, Muhammad Yusuf Naqash has welcomed the remarks of the United Nations special team regarding the custodial killing of Shaheed Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai.

Four UN special rapporteurs in their letter to the Indian government have expressed grave concern at the arrest of senior Hurriyat leader, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, followed by torture and his death in custody and urged the Indian government to investigate the case.

Muhammad Yusuf Naqash in a statement issued in Srinagar said, India will have to account for the killings and the massacre of innocent people in fake encounters. He added that the world has come to know that India is emerging as a rogue state in the region and its minorities, in general, and Muslims, in particular, are falling prey to its bullying and terrorism.

The demand for an impartial inquiry into the extrajudicial and custodial murder of Muhammad Ashraf Sahrai by the UN special team is not only commendable but such efforts and steps will be helpful in exposing the Indian crimes that it has been committing for the last several decades.

Yousuf Naqash appealed to the United Nations, peace-loving and other conscientious powers to help provide justice to the Kashmiris and their basic right to self-determination by exposing the ugly face of India to the world.

Expressing satisfaction over the release of sincere and fearless leaders of Kashmir freedom movement, Amir Hamza and Farooq Tawhidi from their illegal detention, he hoped that both the leaders would continue their struggle for freedom from Indian subjugation with more enthusiasm than before.
