The All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) on Thursday expressed serious concern over the ongoing spree of killing and arrest in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

According to the Kashmir Media Service, the APHC spokesman, Adv Abdul Rashid Minhas, in a statement in Srinagar, said that the military might and anti-Kashmir policies adopted by the Indian BJP government towards the Kashmiris for the past decades have failed to resolve the dispute. He reiterated that India had the opportunity to improve the situation in IIOJK for peace and progress in South Asia.

The spokesman paid tribute to two youth martyred by Indian troops in a fake encounter in Kathua district, and Imtiaz Ahmed Pala, a civilian killed in Indian troops’ custody on June 4, 2024.

The APHC spokesman said the Indian government must remember that Kashmiris are ready to die for freedom but not surrender, and it is the responsibility of the civilized world to intervene and stop innocent killings in IIOJK.
