Srinagar, July 20, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that unleashing terror on unarmed citizens by the Indian troops is naked terrorism. Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar said the recent nocturnal crackdown at Mochwara Shopian during which the troops went berserk and tortured men, women, children and elderly people of whole village is an example of colonial mindset in the garb of so-called democracy.
The JKLF Chairman said the desecration of graveyards and other religious places, attacks on families of opponents and destroying residential houses can only be termed inhuman, unethical and terrorism in uniform. He said though oppression is going on in occupied Kashmir from last many years, but after the imposition of Governor’s Rule, the oppression has increased alarmingly.
He said Kashmir is burning and Kashmiris are being terrorized by the so-called biggest democracy but no one is paying heed to the cries of Kashmiris. “Our young and old are being slaughtered, arrested, tortured, and humiliated with impunity by Indian forces but no one seems to bother or feel any pain or responsibility to stop this,” he added.
Muhammad Yasin Malik maintained that the Kashmiris are also part of human kind, they also have human rights and human dignity and it is the responsibility of fellow humans to come to their rescue and stop those hands unleashing oppression on them. He said recent UN report on Kashmir has raised hopes among Kashmiris and this report now needs a serious follow up so that Kashmiris are saved from the wrath of the Indian oppressors.
Expressing concern over the plight of Kashmiri inmates languishing in different jails of India including Tihar Jail and the jails of Kashmir, he said thousands of young and old are being terrorized and tortured in jails and police along with the civil authorities are employing every tactic to prolong their illegal detention.
He said recently a Hurriyat activist, Ghulam Hassan Malik alias Noor Khan passed away in Kot Bhalwal jail. This dying human was tied to a chain even on death bed which speaks volumes about the oppressors, deplored the JKLF chairman. He said that the international human rights organizations should take cognizance of the atrocities being committed on the Kashmiri political prisoners and use their good offices for their release.
