Srinagar, April 15 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has expressed serious concern over the escalating tension between the armies of India and Pakistan, especially in Poonch and Rajouri sectors resulting in immense damage.

The Hurriyat forum in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said every time there is exchange of firing on the Line of Control (LoC) the people on the both sides become the primary target and bear the brunt.

It said that the lingering Kashmir dispute was the main reason of rift between India and Pakistan and until the Kashmir dispute is resolved amicably the bitterness between the two countries prevailing since last seven decades won’t end.

Demanding the rollback of anti-people highway closure order, the Hurriyat forum said barring civilian traffic on the highway twice a week has caused immense hardships for the common masses. It added decision of closing highway for two days a week is an anti-people move.

It strongly denounced the shifting of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik already under draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) from Jammu Jail to Delhi and handing him over to the Indian NIA and also the ED summon to the minor daughters of resistance leader, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and shifting of resistance and religious leaders to Haryana jail.

It said that shifting of prisoners to Indian prisons was against the Geneva Convention and also the Supreme Court of India rulings that stresses on lodging the inmates in jails closer to their homes.
