Srinagar, April 13 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, after failing to suppress the Kashmiris’ ongoing freedom struggle through the use of brute force, Indian Army is applying new tactics to win the hearts of the people of the territory.
In this connection, the Indian Army is hosting Iftar parties for the Muslims in the holy month of Ramadan in different areas of the occupied territory.
Political experts are of the opinion that such events are mostly held in far-flung areas during which people are coerced to ensure their presence and given a covert warning to keep themselves aloof from the pro-freedom activities.
At the same time, they say, the pictures taken by the army at these activities are exploited by the Indian government to hoodwink the world into believing that situation is normal in the territory.
Meanwhile, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir chapter leader, Altaf Hussain Wani, in a statement issue in Islamabad strongly condemned the framing of charges under sedition laws against the Hurriyat leaders by India’s dreaded National Investigation Agency (NIA).
He said that the NIA, after failing to produce any concrete evidence against the Hurriyat leaders in the court of law, was shamelessly abusing the law to victimize Nayeem Ahmed Khan and other leaders just for raising their voice for freedom and advocating for a just settlement of the Kashmir dispute in line with the universally accepted principle of right to self-determination.
Wani appealed to the international human rights organizations to take cognizance of the matter and help in the release all illegally detained Kashmiris languishing in different jails of IIOJK and India.
