Indian army continues operation in Kupwara
Srinagar, September 18 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that the Indian authorities are subjecting Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chief, Aasiya Andrabi and her associate Fehmida Sofi to political vengeance by not releasing them despite the court has quashed draconian Public Safety Act against them.

Muhammad Yasin Malik filed two petitions in the Human Rights Commission of the territory in Srinagar, today. In his first petition, he deplored that Aasiya and Fehmida were being detained in a Jammu jail on the pretext of a fake case against them. In his second petition, the JKLF Chief raised the issue of illegal detention of 16 youth including Aadil Siarj Misgar, Davood Fayaz Zargar, Juwaiz Hassan Khan, Arooj Aafaq Bhat, Iqbal Ahmad Khan, Arsalan Mushtaq Bangri, Seerat ul Hassan, Sheikh Khalid Rasool, Imran Nabi Wani, Owaise Muneer Bhat, Danish Rahim Mir, Sameer Ahmad Khan, Danish Ayoub Badoo, Musawir Bhat and Bashir Ahmad Bhat from Srinagar in baseless cases. He termed these arrests as Indian tactics to suppress the Kashmiris’ genuine struggle for freedom. He urged the Human Rights Commission to take up the issue and deliver justice to the aggrieved families. Muhammad Yasin Malik emphasized that the occupation authorities were using arrests and detentions to intimidate Kashmiri youth and Hurriyat leaders to submission.

Meanwhile, Indian army continued its operation in the forests of Machil in Kupwara district for the second consecutive day, today. The troops backed by gunship helicopters sealed the area and conducted a cordon and search operation. More soldiers were sent to reinforce the troops taking part in the operation.

The forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema and Awami Action Committee in their statements strongly condemned the repeated imposition of curfew and restrictions in Srinagar and lockdown of city’s central mosque for Friday congregation prayers. They said that the successive puppet governments in Kashmir adopted oppressive measures to weaken the popular sentiment for freedom by committing grave human rights violations in the territory. The statements denounced the continued house arrest of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

The All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party, Salvation Movement and Tehreek-e-Mazahmat in their statements paid glowing tributes to martyr Ajaz Dar on his 29th martyrdom anniversary, today.
