The APHC in its executive body meeting chaired by General Secretary, Ghulam Nabi Sumji in Srinagar today, said since past eight years, Syed Ali Gilani has been barred from offering religious obligations and added that more contingent of police were deployed and no one was allowed to meet Gilani.

Demanding impartial probe and stringent action against those accused in murder and rape of Kathua minor girl Asifa, the participants said that the authorities were providing shield to the involved persons in the heinous crime. Paying tributes to youth slain in Shopian and other places, they said that despite all hardships sacrifices of Kashmiris would yield desired results and would see the dawn of freedom soon.

They urged the international community to take cognizance of the gross and systematic violations of human rights taking place in Kashmir and use its influence with India to bring an end to brutal killings and strangulating genuine voices.
