He said that the Indian state terrorism witnessed further upsurge after the custodial demise of the veteran Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Gilani, on 1st September, 2021. The spokesman pointed out that Indian troops and police personnel are subjecting the people of the occupied territory to humiliation and intimidation to suppress their resolve for freedom. He called upon the world human rights organizations to hold India accountable for the gross human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian forces’ personnel in IIOJK.
