Islamabad, August 16 (KMS): The Convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference and acting chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Mehmood Ahmed Saghar, while taking strong exception to the Modi regime’ recent move to sack five more Kashmiris from government services has termed it an act of political vengeance.
In a statement issued in Islamabad on Tuesday, Saghar said that the employees’ dismissal on mere allegations was nothing but a malicious attempt to deprive Kashmiris of their jobs and their legitimate rights guaranteed to them under the international law.
“Since New Delhi has failed to suppress Kashmiris’ liberation struggle through the use of its repressive state apparatus, the apartheid regime led by Modi has now discovered a new imperialistic tool to suppress Kashmiris economically”, he said.
“Targeted victimization of families and relatives of resistance leaders was also a part of the regime’s nefarious game plan to deter Kashmiris from pursuing their collective cause,” he added.
Urging the international human rights groups to take effective notice of the matter, he said, “It is high time that the world bodies should influence the Indian government to desist from such mean tactics”.
