Indian ban order poisonous for basic freedoms: Farooq Rehmani

Islamabad, December 22 (KMS): The Convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir (APHC-AJK Chapter, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has castigated Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government for turning against freedom of political discourse.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad denounced the banning of two Kashmir-related websites – Kashmir Global and Kashmir Watch – and 20 YouTube channels by Modi regime in entirety across India, to suffocate human voices and suppress uprisings of Kashmiris and Sikhs.

The APHC-AJK Convener stated that the Indian action was not only ultra vires of its own Constitution but also disregarded and violated the United Nations Charter and its universal manifesto. He called upon the UN and its relevant forums and international organisations to take a strong note of the ban order against the websites and YouTube channels and force the fascist Delhi regime to lift the ban and ensure freedom of speech and expression and right to dissent in India and Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
