No hope for justice from Indian judiciary

Srinagar, February 14, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that the Kashmiri people do not expect justice from the Indian judiciary, as it is not different from the Indian executive and legislative authority.

The statement came in the backdrop of the reports that Indian Supreme Court had stayed legal proceedings against Major Aditya and other Army officials, who are involved in targeted killing of three civilian boys in Shopian on 28th January, 2018. The leadership maintained that none of the perpetrators has ever been brought to book or punished when it comes to Kashmir and Indian judiciary has always rescued the Indian troops involved in heinous crimes. The JRL also criticized India’s biased and aggressive media for defending the culprits.

The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, in a statement said that Indian secret agencies were trying to raise army-backed renegades to carry out civilian killings in the Kashmir Valley. He said, these agencies are involved in the killing of APHC Executive Council member and Secretary General of Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e Islami, Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem in Badgam, the other day.

Meanwhile, on the directions of Syed Ali Gilani, the APHC organized a condolence meeting at Sindhipora in Budgam to pay tributes to the deceased, Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem. Delegations of Anjuman Sharie Shian and other pro-freedom organizations also visited the bereaved family.

The Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement strongly denounced the puppet authorities for repeatedly imposing curbs in Srinagar saying the move amounts to violation of basic democratic principles. On the other hand, clashes were reported between Indian troops and protesters in Kareemabad area of Pulwama district, today. The troops resorted to firing on the protesting youth who retaliated with stone-pelting.

Hurriyat leaders and organizations in their separate statements paid glowing tributes to prominent freedom activist, Ghulam Muhammad Bulla, on the eve of his 43rd martyrdom anniversary. Ghulam Muhammad Bulla was arrested by the Indian police and killed in custody on 15th February, 1975, for leading a protest rally in Sopore against Indra-Abdullah Accord.
