Security Council should now act on Kashmir, urges Farooq Rehmani


Islamabad, May 17 (KMS): Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, Convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that every Kashmiri in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir faces a fierce onslaught by India for demanding the UN-granted right to self-determination.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad, today, said, “Despite Pakistan’s financial and political quagmire, Kashmir is the only international dispute, which needs to be addressed to save millions from Modi regime’s anti-Kashmir slow poisoning and systematic killing designs.

He said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir hoped that Allah would help Pakistan to overcome the current monetary crisis that had shaken and engulfed many countries especially some South Asian states due to riddled wars and proxies for decades and unresolved conflicts following the World War II. He stated that Kashmir was a region where India was enmeshed in extermination of the local Muslim majority by all dreadful ways of fake encounters, custodial killings, judicial murders, life imprisonments, and neo-colonial settler policy.

To achieve its goal of wracking and enslaving and depopulating Kashmiri Muslims, India, he said, had put behind bars Kashmiri leaders and youth for long and there was no global cry against making the besieged state a horrible prison.

He said that the innocent civilians were picked, arrested and killed day and night and in addition that lakhs of rupees were extracted from their parents for their release, but many detainees suffered for years in jails. He said that Indian authorities had imposed a design to ruin the social and communal paternity and brotherhood of the society by disturbing their societal and religious functions by frequent search operations, crackdowns and arrests of youth and society’s earning hands.

He urged the UN diplomats and HR defenders in the UN forum to underscore such inhuman Indian activities.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, hoped that Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, the Foreign Minister of Pakistan will raise the issue of the right of self-determination and the human rights especially a long list of prosecution cases against the Kashmiri youth and leaders during his meetings with the Security Council members. He called upon the world body to prevent India from prosecuting the Kashmiri leaders in jails and implementing draconian Indian laws including the recently adopted Delimitation Commission’s report on J&K, which was violating the basic postulates of the international law on the subject.
