IIOJK in focus

APHC condemns upsurge in killing of civilians by troops in IIOJK

Srinagar, November 19 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has condemned the upsurge in extrajudicial killing of civilians in fake encounters by Indian troops in the territory.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar also expressed deep concern over the most volatile situation faced by the oppressed people of IIOJK at the hands of more than one million Indian forces’ personnel.

He hailed the valour and strong commitment displayed by the aggrieved families of the martyred Altaf Ahmad Butt and Dr Mudassir Gul in getting back their dead bodies and said that the drama of a fake encounter has unmasked the Indian face of state terrorism in IIOJK.

“Our history of resistance movement is full of such gruesome carnages of innocent killings since the forcible occupation of the territory in 1947. We are indebted to the sacred and precious sacrifices of our martyrs and the freedom-loving people of Kashmir,” the spokesman said. He reiterated the Kashmiris’ resolve to take the ongoing resistance movement to its logical conclusion despite these brazen and heinous acts of civilian killings.

Demanding the fair enquiry by an impartial commission under the auspices of International Court of Justice in carnages like Hyderpora, Solina, Lawaypora, Shopian, Bijbehara, Razekadal, Chatisinghpora, Maisuma, Handwara, Wandahama etc carried out by Indian forces in the territory, the spokesman said, the precious sacrifices of Kashmiri martyrs could not be forgotten and there is no option but to lead the freedom movement to its logical conclusion.

Denouncing the stubbornness of India, the spokesman said it is responsible for the present critical situation prevailing in the region where three atomic powers have fallen in a cold war situation. He added that it could easily be understood that the olive branch offered by Pakistan in the form of releasing, Abhi Nandon, and announcement of ceasefire along the Line of Control are reciprocated by an upsurge in the civilian killings by India in IIOJK.

The spokesman urged the United Nations to take cognizance of the widespread genocide, arbitrary arrests, acts of physical violence, humiliation and human rights abuses suffered by the people of Kashmir at the hands of Indian forces with impunity.
It is the moral obligation of the UN to implement its resolutions on Kashmir and India must be forced to fulfill its commitments which it has made before the international community, he maintained.
