She also highlighted the plight of illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists languishing in different jails of India and the territory, adding that the Kashmiri detainees are being tortured in jails. She especially mentioned that the Indian government wanted to hang Hurriyat leader Muhammad Yasin Malik, who has been languishing in New Delhi’s Tihar jail, in the month of December.

Mushaal said Indian troops are committing brutalities on the people of the occupied territory and reiterated that the resolution of the Kashmir dispute was imperative not only for durable peace in the world.

She also appealed to the United Nations and other international rights organizations to give the people of Kashmir and Palestine their right to self- determination so that permanent peace could be established in the world.
