Killing of youth by Indian troops in IIOJK condemned

Srinagar, October 09 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement (DPM) and the Jammu and Kashmir Employees Movement (JKEM) have strongly condemned the killing of innocent Kashmiri youth by Indian troops in the territory.

The DPM Chairman, Khawaja Firdous in a statement issued in Srinagar said that India should know that by using its military might it could not prevent the people of Kashmir from continuing their just struggle for right to self-determination.

He reiterated the Kashmiris’ pledge to continue freedom movement till it reached its logical conclusion. He said, unless the Kashmir dispute is resolved in accordance with the UN resolutions and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people, the dream of lasting peace and stability in South Asia can never be realized.

Khawaja Firdous urged the United Nations and the international community to take note of the grave human rights violations by Indian forces in the occupied territory and play role in settling the Kashmir dispute. He paid rich tributes to two Kashmiri youth, who were recently martyred in Islamabad and Srinagar areas by Indian troops.

JKEM Vice Chairman, Imtiaz Wani, in a statement in Islamabad said that Indian troops had intensified their atrocities in IIOJK and were killing innocent youth during so-called cordon and search operations. He deplored that India had besieged eighty lakh Kashmiris due to which they were facing severe hardships.

He paid rich tributes to the youth, martyred by the Indian forces in Islamabad and Srinagar districts and said that the sacrifices of the Kashmiri martyrs would definitely bring positive results soon.

He appealed to the United Nations to take steps to settle the Kashmir dispute according to its own resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people so that durable peace could be established in region.
