Torturing of Kashmiri detainees in Tihar jail denounced

Srinagar, November 29 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, senior resistance leaders, Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, have said that India is victimizing the Kashmiris for demanding their just and legitimate right to self-determination.

Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik addressing a Seerat Conference at Hyderpora in Srinagar, today, deplored that New Delhi was subjecting the illegally detained Kashmiris lodged in different jails of India and the occupied territory to the worst kind of inhuman treatment. However, they said that the Indian brutalities could not subdue the Kashmiris’ freedom sentiment and they would take the ongoing liberation movement to its logical conclusion at all costs. The conference was also addressed by Altaf Hussain Nadvi, Qazi Moeen-ul-Islam and Bashir Ahmed Farooqi.

Hurriyat leaders and organizations including Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, Mir Shahid Saleem, Zafar Akbar Butt, Javaid Ahmed Mir, Barrister Abdul Majeed Tramboo, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Ghulam Nabi War, Syed Faiz Naqshbandi, Nahida Nasreen, Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League and High Court Bar Association of occupied Kashmir in their statements strongly denounced the thrashing of illegally detained Kashmiris lodged at New Delhi’s infamous Tihar jail. They urged the international human rights organizations to visit Tihar jail and take firsthand account of the ill-treatment being meted out to the Kashmiri prisoners.

Meanwhile, people staged forceful demonstrations in Aglar Kandi area of Pulwama district, today, against ruthless thrashing of some locals by Indian troops, last night. They raised high-pitched anti-India and pro-freedom slogans.

The student delegations that met India-appointed interlocutor, Dineshwar Sharma, in Islamabad town, were left dismayed as they got no answers to the questions they posed to him. The delegations sought resolution of the Kashmir dispute as per the Kashmiris’ aspirations, the release of political prisoners and youth and the withdrawal of cases against them, apart from demanding end to human rights violations, repeal of draconian laws, ban on use of pellet guns and free movement of people across the Line of Control. The students who talked to media after their meeting with Sharma said that they were disappointed with the response they got while they tried to highlight some genuine issues before the interlocutor.

It is pertinent to mention here that all Hurriyat leaders and organizations have boycotted meeting the interlocutor describing his appointment for talks as futile.

Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir in a statement in Srinagar strongly condemned the use of brute force on people and vandalizing of their properties by the troops during a cordon and search operation in Hajin area of Bandipora district, the other day.
