IOK people facing worst kind of Indian state terrorism

Srinagar, October 31 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has described the appointment of Dineshwar Sharma by the Government of India as its interlocutor on Jammu and Kashmir as nothing more than a tactic to buy time after  failure of its military repression upon the Kashmiris.

The resistance leaders in a statement issued after a meeting at the Hyderpora residence of Syed Ali Gilani in Srinagar said that they had always advocated and supported sincere and productive dialogue as means of conflict resolution over Jammu and Kashmir but India had been continuously refusing to accept the reality of the Kashmir dispute. They reiterated that the use of brute force, killings, arrests, torture and harassment of women could not force the Kashmiris to give up their just freedom struggle. They said that permanent peace in South Asia could not be ensured without settling the Kashmir dispute in its historical perspective on the basis of right to self-determination.

Meanwhile, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement appealed to the world human rights bodies and UN Human Rights Council to take cognizance of human rights abuses perpetrated by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir. He expressed deep concern over the biased approach of Indian judiciary against the Kashmiri prisoners.

Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement strongly condemned the continued illegal detention of an elderly Hurriyat activist, Muhammad Sha’aban, of Kulgam.

Dukhtaran-e-Millat General Secretary, Nahida Nasreen in a statement in Srinagar expressed grave concern over the deteriorating health of illegally detained party Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi. She said that the puppet regime’s irresponsible attitude towards the woman leader had only exposed the plot being hatched to kill her by depriving her of medical facilities in jail.

On the other hand, an Indian soldier committed suicide by hanging himself with a ceiling fan at an army camp in Udhampur district. This incident raised the number of such deaths amongst the Indian troops and police personnel in the occupied territory to 391 since January 2007.
