Srinagar, January 22 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) leader Molvi Bashir Irfani has said that the word democracy is a mask on the true face of India behind which it is constantly deceiving the world by hiding its cruel imperialist face.
Molvi Bashir Irfani in a statement in connection with India’s Republic Day, January 26, said 76 years ago, the Indian forces, in flagrant violation of international law and humanitarian principles, illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He deplored that the Indian troops were committing the worst kind of state terrorism in the occupied territory to maintain their illegal occupation. Lakhs of Kashmiris were martyred by Indian forces, hundreds of youth, children and women lost their sight due to Indian pellet guns, he added.

He requested all humanitarian circles and Kashmiris abroad to observe January 26 as Black Day to show India’s true face to the world and also appealed to the international community to take notice of the serious and worst violations of human and democratic rights by India in IIOJK.
