A delegation of Jammu and Kashmir Young Men’s League comprising Imtiyaz Ahmad Reshi along with Shakeel-ur-Rehman and Tehreeqi Istiqlal chairman, Ghulam Nabi Waseem visited Sopore to meet resistance leader, and Muslim Conferences Chairman Shabbir Ahmad Dar who was released from Kothbilwal jail after 3 months illegal detention.

On the occasion, the leaders said world is going to celebrate International Human Rights Day but in Kashmir it has became joke. They expressed shock and anguish over the continued rights violations being committed by the Indian forces in particular ghastly killings of innocent people in the territory.

They said it is responsibility of the international community to shun the double standard maintained towards Kashmir and should come forward for putting pressure on India to stop the rights abuses at the hands of Indian forces.

Meanwhile, the Chairperson of Kashmir Centre for Social and Development Studies, Hameeda Nayeem Speaking at a conference in Srinagar denounced the Indian government for giving impunity to its forces. The function was organized by the Chairman of International Forum of Justice (IFJ) Muhammad Ahsan Untoo in Srinagar. She said, “Kashmir Indian forces are not only killing and thrashing the civilians but are also crushing the economy, culture and social life in Kashmir so that the people will bow down and surrender.”

She said that the Governor rather than looking after the day to day governance issue had started ruling over here and was bringing radical changes in institutes and is disempowering the Kashmiris which was also a human rights violation. Chairman of Islami Tanzeem Azadi Jammu and Kashmir, Abdul Samad Inqilabi in a statement sought the intervention by the international community for investigation of human rights violations in occupied Kashmir.
