Ban on civilian movement on Srinagar-Jammu highway condemned

Srinagar, July 05 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred one Kashmiri youth in Shopian district, today.

The troops martyred the youth, Sameer Ahmed, during a violent cordon and search operation in Narwani area of the district. The occupation authorities suspended mobile internet service in the district. The troops also launched a similar operation in Nazneenpora area of Pulwama district and conducted door-to-door searches.

The All Parties Hurriyat Conference in a statement issued in Srinagar expressing serious concern about the worsening health of its Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, said that continued house arrest was grossly effected his well being. The statement said it is surprising that mighty Indian establishment is scared of an old, frail man and feels comfortable by putting curbs on his activities.

The APHC also strongly condemned the autocratic order of the occupation authorities to restrict the civilian movement on Srinagar-Jammu highway during the Amarnath Yatra. The Jammu Muslim Front in a statement in Jammu said that restrictions on civilian movement on Srinagar-Jammu highway would create chaos as people including tourists will suffer, thus affecting the economy of the territory. A large number of people staged a sit-in protest at Press Enclave in Srinagar against ban on civilian movement on the highway and suspension of train service on Qazigund-Banihal track during Amarnath Yatra.

Meanwhile, in order to suppress the Kashmiris’ ongoing freedom movement, the Indian government has decided to shift more illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and youth to the Indian jails. The Indian authorities have already lodged hundreds of Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders and activists including Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Aasiya Andrabi and Masarrat Aalam Butt at Delhi’s Tihar Jail and other Indian prisons after booking them under false cases.

The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, along with other Hurriyat leaders, Muhammad Iqbal Mir and Ghazi Altaf, today, visited Nawpora area of Srinagar and condoled the death of noted writer and social activist, Munshi Ghulam Hassan, with the bereaved family. Munshi Ghulam Hassan was the son of founding leader of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference, Munshi Ishaaq.

In Geneva, Paul Newmman Kumar Stanisclavas of the Centre for Africa Development and Progress, speaking during the ongoing 41st Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council informed the UN Body that in the last couple of months the Muslims in India had witnessed a rise in hate crimes against them and there had been lynching of Muslims and Dalits across India by fanatic Hindu mobs, ostensibly for the protection of the holy cow.
