29 December, 2012
Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement (DPM), Firdous Ahmad Shah has said that the unprecedented sacrifices offered by the Kashmiri people for securing their right to self-determination will not be allowed to go waste.
Firdous Ahmad Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the Kashmiris had been struggling against the illegal occupation of India since 1947 and would never compromise on their birthright to self-determination.
He said that India was committing human rights violations in the territory to prevent the people of Kashmir from their just struggle. He said that political detainees were treated inhumanly and even they were not provided the basic amenities in prisons.
Firdous Shah demanded immediate release of all illegally detained Kashmiri Hurriyet leaders and activists languishing in various jails and appealed to the international human rights organisations to take solid steps to stop rights violations in the occupied territory.
