878 Kashmiris martyred in PDP-BJP regime in IOK

Srinagar, June 20 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown will be observed, tomorrow, against the continued killing spree by the Indian troops in the territory.

Call for the shutdown has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik and is also aimed at registering protest against the cold-blooded murder of veteran Kashmiri journalist, Shujaat Bukhari. The resistance leaders in a statement in Srinagar said that the occupied territory had witnessed a sudden surge in killings since the Eid day on Saturday.

The JRL, meanwhile, has sent a petition to UN Human Rights Council, demanding the establishment of an independent international commission of inquiry to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the gross human rights violations in occupied Kashmir.

A report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, today, on the occasion of the change in the puppet authorities in the occupied territory revealed that the Indian troops martyred 878 Kashmiris including 21 women during the puppet coalition regime of PDP-BJP from 1st May 2015 till it collapsed yesterday on 19th of June 2018. Of those martyred, 81 youth were killed in fake encounters. During the period, 27,115 people were injured due to the firing of bullets, pellets and teargas shells on peaceful protesters by the Indian troops, paramilitary and police personnel. The eyes of over 1500 youth were hit by pellets during the period and at least 78 of them have become totally blind. Another report released by the Research Section of the KMS on the occasion of World Refugee Day, today, said that the unabated Indian state terrorism during the last twenty nine years had forced over thirty five thousand Kashmiris to live outside the territory as refugees.

Thousands of people attended the funeral prayers of three youth in their native areas in Pulwama and Kulgam districts amid high-pitched pro-freedom, pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans.

In London, the All-Party Parliamentary Kashmir Group in the UK Parliament has released an interim report on the ongoing human rights situation of occupied Kashmir. The report compiled after receiving various testimonies about the human rights violations perpetrated by the Indian troops in the occupied territory said the imposition of draconian laws in the occupied territory was against the international covenants to which India was a signatory.
