IIOJK people facing brunt of Indian state terrorism: APHC

Srinagar, January 07 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has condemned the unabated killings, arrests and other atrocities by Indian forces’ personnel across the territory.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the freedom-loving people of Kashmir were facing the worst Indian state terrorism with extreme fortitude in their just struggle for securing their inalienable right to self-determination.

Paying glowing tributes to the martyrs and the precious sacrifices rendered by brave people of Kashmir for the sacred cause of freedom from Indian subjugation, he said that despite Indian suppression and repression, the exemplary steadfastness displayed by the people of Kashmir had jolted Indian military arrogance and utterly bulldozed its nefarious designs to break the will of the Kashmiri people.

The APHC spokesman hailed the valour of freedom-loving women prisoners of conscience, languishing in Tihar and other jails in India and the occupied territory, including, Aasiya Andrabi, Naheeda Nasreen, Fehmeeda Sofi, Hina Bashir Beig, Aasiya Bano, Rasqeem Akhtar, Sheeba, Anjman Younis, Tabbasam Maqbool, Saima Akhter, Shazia Akhter, Saiqa Akhter, Aasiya Akhter and Naseema Begum. All these women detainees have been incarcerated on flimsy grounds and deprived of the basic amenities, including hygienic food and medical care, he lamented.

The spokesman urged the United Nations Human Rights Council and other human rights organisations to visit the hellish jails of India and take on spot account of the miserable life of the illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists, including APHC Chairman, Masarrat Aalam Butt, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Aasiya Andrabi, Dr Shafi Shariati, Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, Dr Ghulam Muhammad Butt, Ameer Hamza, Muhammad Yousaf Mir and Muhammad Yousaf Falahi.

He also urged the international community to support the Kashmiris’ just struggle for right to self-determination, help stop the worst human rights abuses perpetrated by Indian forces in IIOJK and play role in settling the lingering Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN resolutions.
