Indian forces involved in war crimes in IOK: Gilani

Srinagar, January 28, 2018 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has said that Indian forces are involved in serious war crimes in Kashmir. Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar strongly criticized forces for killing civilians including Javaid Ahmad Butt and Suhail Javed Lone and injuring of scores of people in indiscriminate firing in Ganpora, Shopian. He said it should serve an eye-opener for international community.

Terming the statement of Mehbooba Mufti ridiculous, he said their rhetoric about such inquiry commissions is just an eye wash and deceit. There is no reason to accept its creditability as they just want to pacify the sentiments of people and till now none among the accused was brought to book, punished or declared guilty, he added.

Paying glorious tributes to the martyrs, Syed Ali Gilani expressed solidarity with the grieved families, saying the blood of martyrs will never go in vain. He said Indian forces are using brute force against unarmed civilians and taking revenge from innocent citizens.

Referring to Indian forces, he said they are enjoying the impunity under the garb of draconian laws like Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and Public Safety Act (PSA) and it serve a license for them to kill anybody. It is impossible to halt such events unless these incidents are investigated by some international agencies and culprits brought to book, added Syed Ali Gilani. He appealed to the peace-loving people of the world to wake up from their slumber and put pressure on India for resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people.
