Srinagar, June 21 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has condemned India’s policy of repression and suppression against the pro-freedom people especially youth in the territory.
The APHC Chief spokesman, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, in a statement issued in Srinagar said that detention of Hurriyat leader, Abdul Qayoom Matto, and eight other persons for participating in anti-India demonstrations in Kishtwar on the occasion of Eidul Fitr was unjustified. He termed the action as the worst form of vengeance. He hailed the people of Kishtwar for their commitment to the freedom movement.
He strongly condemned the house detention of APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, and other Hurriyat leaders including Mirwaiz Umar and Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai. He expressed his deep concern about gross human rights violations by the troops in the territory.
Meanwhile, an APHC delegation comprising Umar Aadil Dar, Ishfaq Ahmed and Abdul Rasheed visited Soura Institute of Medical Sciences in Srinagar and enquired about the well-being of a youth, Abdul Majeed, who was injured in unprovoked firing of Indian troops on protesters.
On the other hand, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) in a statement in Srinagar condemned the booking of its leader, Abdul Qayoom Matto, and eight other people in fake cases to shield the Hindu extremist who had exhibited hooliganism in Kishtwar on Eid day.
