Srinagar, October 05 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that Kashmiris are rendering unparalleled sacrifices for securing their right to self-determination and not for perks and privileges.
The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar deplored that Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government is trying to mislead the world community by showing that a new era of so-called development has kicked off in IIOJK. He said the Kashmiris are not against peace and development but breaking shackles of Indian slavery is their prime objective. “How peace and development can happen in IIOJK when it has become the world’s most militarized zone?” he asked.
The spokesman pointed out that the Indian Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit is misleading and aimed at hoodwinking the world into believing that situation is normal in IIOJK. “Visit of Amit Shah to IIOJK means nothing for the oppressed and subjugated Kashmiris. It is a smokescreen aimed at diverting international attention from grave human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian troops in the territory,” he added.
The APHC spokesman maintained that killing of Kashmiris on a daily basis debunk Amit Shah’s claim of IIOJK emerging as the ‘most secured place’. He said Modi regime’s 5th August 2019 illegal move has put the occupied territory into a reverse gear in all spheres of life.
The spokesman said not development but plebiscite under UN auspices is the foremost demand of Kashmiris. He said that the Kashmiri people must be heard and given an opportunity to decide their future by themselves.
The APHC spokesman urged India to give up its intransigence on the Kashmir dispute and resolve it in accordance with the UN resolutions and Kashmiris’ aspirations for peace and development in the region. He also called upon the international community not to subscribe to India’s misleading attempts in IIOJK and rather hold it accountable for its brutalities on the innocent people of IIOJK.
