World asked to play role in Kashmir resolution

Srinagar, April 20 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has strongly condemned the reign of terror unleashed by brutal Indian forces on Kashmiri men, women and children in nook and corner of the territory.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said IIOJK is facing a martial law-like situation where fundamental rights of the Kashmiri people are trampled by the occupational forces during nocturnal raids even in the ongoing holy month of Ramadan. He said, the pro-freedom leadership is implicated under frivolous charges for demanding Kashmiris’ legitimate right to self-determination. The APHC said youth are killed under the garb of so-called cordon and search operations. »

#IndianMaliciousPropaganda

Islamabad, April 20 (KMS): India has launched a malicious propaganda against Pakistan on the pretext of some marginal incidents of violence at some places in the country.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service said that by citing such incidents, which do take place even in the developed countries like the US and France, India is trying to give a false impression as if Pakistan is facing a civil war-like situation. The fact is, the report said, civil war in Pakistan is India’s dream, which will, by the grace of God, never come true as the Pakistanis are well aware of New Delhi’s evil designs against their country and are united to thwart them.

“Majority of the tweets regarding the recent violence in a few places by miscreants in Pakistan are originating from India,” the report said and advised India to stop propaganda against Pakistan and instead focus on putting its own house in order. »

Says drive against HR voices defeat of Modi regime

Islamabad, April 20 (KMS): Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League has castigated Narendra Modi-led Indian fascist regime for blocking the website of Kashmir Media Service to strangulate the voices of the human rights of Kashmiris who have been deprived of basic human rights.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Srinagar said that after the repeal of the special constitutional guarantees and safeguards given to IIOJK, it was another squeezing move to declare the racist Hindu establishment in Jammu and Kashmir above accountability in the domain of human rights questions.

He said that after curbing the local free media and killing of photo-journalists in the occupied territory, the ultra Hindu regime was not feeling at ease as the KMS website had proved successful in making the world aware of grave threats to life, honour and property of the people of Kashmir.

Farooq Rehmani said that this was height of abuses in the IIOJK and the UN should take note of the matter and necessary steps should be taken for an amicable and honorable solution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute by all international ways and means.

Finally, it should be kept in mind that the ultra Hindu establishment is bent upon treating Kashmir as its own private property like sheep and goats, he warned.

Srinagar, April 20 (KMS): Having exhausted all brutal measures of suppression and repression on the people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, particularly after August 5, 2019, to break their resolve for freedom, Indian forces have eventually admitted their failure in removing the prevailing sense of alienation among the Kashmiri masses.

In an attempt to portray a so-called soft- image, Indian Army vehicles in Kashmir are moving with white and blue flags “to address the feeling of alienation among (IIOJK) citizens” as per the statement of Indian Army Spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Emron Musavi in Srinagar. He said, the colours of flags on army vehicles and flags carried by soldiers have been changed from red to blue and white while pictures of Indian army vehicles displaying a so-called message—“Kashmiri Ko Salam” circulated on the social media. »

Srinagar, April 20 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has castigated the Indian government for the inhuman and illegal incarceration of senior party leaders and other political prisoners lodged in various jails in and outside of the occupied territory without any reason.

The PDP General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura in a statement issued in Srinagar termed the approach of the occupation authorities as inhumane and devoid of any empathy.

“Notwithstanding the fact that the detention of top party leaders including Mohammad Sartaj Madni and Naeem Akhter is illegal in the first place, the government has given up even on the basic pretence of empathy and humanism when it comes to political prisoners of J&K even in the holy month of Ramzan,” Hanjura said. »
