#NoPeaceUntilKashmirResoultion

Srinagar, September 21 (KMS): The world is observing International Day of Peace, today, but the peace is something quite unknown to the people in Indian illegally occupied Jammu who are facing the worst state terrorism let loose by India in the territory for the past several decades.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service in connection with the day, also known as World Peace Day, cites the killing of three Kashmiri labourers by Indian troops during a fake encounter in Shopian on July 18, this year and says that such incidents in IIOJK mock celebration of International Day of Peace, worldwide.

The report also mentions the findings of an Indian journalist, Ajit Anjum, who said that had the parents of three fake encounter victims — Imtiaz Ahmad, Abrar Ahmad and Muhammad Abrar, not taken up the issue and had the social media not raised the voice for the innocent youth, the matter would have been hushed up. Ajit Anjum further said that innocent people were killed in such fake encounters in the past as well.

The report maintained that 21 September is dedicated to the global peace, but the same continues to elude South Asia for the past more than seven decades due to the free license enjoyed by India to carry out massacre of the Kashmiri people with impunity. »
