Sehrai’s case demands international intervention in India’s judiciary: Kayani

London, May 06 (KMS): The President of Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK, Fahim Kayani, has said that the custodial murder of iconic Hurriyat leader, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, on May 05 last year is a glaring example that India’s so-called justice system is part of illegal military regime in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

Fahim Kayani addressing a press conference in London in connection with the first martyrdom anniversary of Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai said the Indian judiciary is an inseparable part of illegal military occupation in IIOJK.

“The judges installed in IIOJK give legal cover to war crimes, crimes against humanity committed by Indian occupying forces which is a blatant violation of international law and demands that the United Nations must stand up and intervene and compel India to deliver justice to people,” said Kayani, while addressing a commemoration event.

Highlighting the differential treatment meted out to cases linked to the Kashmir freedom movement, Kayani said, Kashmiris have no faith in the so-called judiciary of India as this judicial system is part of the military regime that illegally occupied Kashmir and the same judicial system gives legal cover to this illegal occupation.

“This is Kangaroo court system in India where anyone who seeks freedom for Kashmir under UN resolutions is being targeted by the military regime and then these courts give legal cover to put these voices of conscience in jails,” said the Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK leader.

This system, Kayani said, shows that India is witnessing a collapse of the justice system. “There is total collapse of the universal justice system in India which needs intervention of international actors to ensure that common people are not discriminated against,” he said.

Kayani said Kashmiris across the world demand that the custodial murder case of Shaheed Ashraf Sehrai should be investigated by the International Criminal Court and other international rights bodies.

Referring to an Indian court ruling that those who write that Kashmir is under illegal occupation of India will not be guarded under universal freedom of speech, Kayani said, “Kashmir is a universally accepted dispute and this ruling is a slap on the international community. Is India bigger than the UN, and 194 nations of this biggest multi-lateral body?”

There are several resolutions and proposals to end illegal occupation of IIOJK through plebiscite which is being stalled by India as it is convinced that Kashmiris will vote against India’s illegal military occupation of their homeland.

Kayani maintained that a slow genocide was happening under Modi’s government in India.

Chaudhry Muhammad Sharif Vice President TeK UK, Chaudhry Zahid Iqbal President South Zone, Chaudhry Muhammad Ramzan President TeK Luton, Chaudhry Muhammad Luqman Deputy Secretary General TeK UK, and Abid Malik Vice President TeK UK, in their joint statement said, “The overall situation in India demands whole world rise against this fascist regime instead of pleasing Modi, whose hands are soaked in cold blood of Muslims.”

Meanwhile, Hurriyat AJK leader, Abdul Hameed Lone and other speakers addressing a conference in Luton, UK, paid rich tributes to Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai. The conference was organized by the Kashmir Campaign Global in connection with first martyrdom anniversary of Ashraf Sehrai.

Abdul Hameed Lone said the basic rights of the Kashmiri people have been taken away after the Indian illegal action of August 5, 2019. He said thousands of Kashmiris, including Hurriyat leaders and youth, remain imprisoned in different jails of IIOJK and India. He added that dozens of women leaders and activists including Aasiya Andrabi are also among the Kashmiri detainees.
