Islamabad, January 10 (KMS): The Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir, Shehryar Khan Afridi has denounced the registration of criminal cases against overseas rights activists from Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), Dr Asif Dar and Muzzammil Ayyub Thakur, under malafide and false charges by Indian police.
Shehryar Khan Afridi speaking to a delegation of Kashmir Youth Alliance led by Dr Mujahid Gilani in Islamabad said that the malafide charges against Kashmiri resistance activist and renowned anesthesiologist Dr Asif Maqbool Dar by Indian police in IIOJK is the biggest violation of basic human rights and mockery of the international law.
He said that his office has taken up the case of Dr Asif Dar with the Pakistan Prime Minister’s Office, Pakistan Foreign Office, Pakistan National Security Division, offices of President and Prime Minister Azad Jammu and Kashmir for necessary action.
“The targeting of Kashmiris by India and her rogue agencies, around the world, whether they are studying, working or carrying out their business, is a serious concern. My office is working with relevant departments in Pakistan to devise a strategy to fight back India’s dangerous plans against overseas Kashmiris,” Afridi noted.
“The police in IIOJK have completely been overrun by RSS ideology which has resulted in a dangerous and deadly combination of fascism and military might – both of which are being used jointly against innocent Kashmiris wherever they are,” said Afridi. The Indian police in IIOJK has levelled baseless and fraud allegations against Dr Dar, who works as a senior anesthesiologist in Middle East.
“Dr Asif Maqbool Dar has emerged as the voice of popular resistance against Indian occupation in IIoJK. His activism both off and online has brought nightmares to India and its stooges in the territory and that is why such fraud allegations are being leveled against these honest and brave Kashmiri resistance activists,” Afridi said.
The Kashmir Committee chairman said levelling fraud allegations against Dr Dar shows ‘frustration of the saffron-clad Indian police in IIOJK.
