Kashmir dispute consuming fourth generation: Sehrai
Srinagar, April 25 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Gilani while terming the prevailing volatile situation in the territory as an utter failure of Indian military might to suppress the freedom sentiments of the people of Kashmir has said that the Indian rulers have started a character assignation campaign against the pro-freedom leadership through their agencies.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, strongly condemned the issuance of series of notices against the joint resistance leadership including Mohammad Yasin Malik, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Shabbir Ahmad Shah’s daughter Seema Shabbir, his sons Dr. Naeem Gilani, Dr. Naseem Gilani and grandson Anees-ul-Islam in addition to the already incarcerated leaders and businessmen in Tihar jail.

The APHC chairman said it is irony of the fate that the Indian political leadership especially the politico-religious extremists are hell bent to use every barbaric, inhuman and immoral tactics against the pro-freedom leadership by putting them behind bars on fabricated charges, which is nothing but to pressurize them to subjugation which is never going to happen.

He said that Shabbir Ahmad Shah and Altaf Ahmad Shah had spent most of their life in Indian jails and today also they lodged in the Tihar jail for the last 2 years. They are in their custody to answer any question and issuing notices to their children is not only undemocratic, immoral but shameful as well, he said.

Terming these brazen tactics as a clear sign of political bankruptcy of Indian rulers who are mistaken to muzzle the freedom slogans raised in the nook and corner of the territory, the pro-freedom leader said that people of Kashmir were proud of their moral victory over the Indian military might, who are using Kashmir as an election stunt to woo their voters.

Castigating the barbaric attitude of Indian rulers to change the jails into interrogation centers for the Kashmiri prisoners who have been deprived of the basic amenities, poor medical facilities, unhygienic food and increasing lock up period have rendered the prisoners as the victims of hypertension, and psychiatric problems and deteriorating health conditions.

He condemned the callous approach meted out to the prisoners of conscience who have been served the life-imprisonment. These lifers have been lodged in the jails, for away from their homes, which in their own legal system is absolutely illegal and illogical.

While condemning the human rights violations meted out to the prisoners in various jails in and outside Kashmir, he appealed to the UN Human Rights Commission, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and International Red Cross to pay early visit to the jails and take stock of the situation regarding the detenues of Jammu and Kashmir.

Syed Ali Gilani also paid tributes to Bijbihara martyrs and said that Indian leaders insensitivity, unconcern, denial and unrealistic approach of the Indian leaders was the sole reason for this unabated bloodshed in disputed land of Jammu and Kashmir.

He once again reiterated that unless the age old wounds of armed occupation were not healed and practical and concrete measures were not taken up by the occupiers and their perpetrators, human blood would continue to spill over and permanent political, economic and regional stability would remain a distant dream.

Meanwhile, the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir Chairman, Muhammad Ashraf in a statement paid tributes to Bijbehara martyrs and said that the 71 years old lingering Kashmir dispute was continuously consuming 4th generation of Kashmiris because of the brutal arrogant approach of India. He asked New Delhi to shun its aggressive approach in Kashmir and resolve the dispute in its historical through a sustained result-oriented meaningful dialogue. “The people of Kashmir are up against injustice, oppression and subjugation and denial of basic political rights,” he added.

He said New Delhi must concede that Kashmir freedom struggle was an indigenous movement. He said international community must come out of their economical and strategic interests and play their role in order to resolve this long pending humanitarian tragedy which is relentlessly consuming human lives at the cost of worldly things.
