15 October, 2012
Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi has said that the Kashmiris have been offering unparalleled sacrifices for securing their inalienable right to self-determination and the day is not far away when they will get rid of Indian yoke.
Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi addressing a meeting of notables in Peeru area of Bandipore said that India and its puppets in the occupied territory were using different tactics to suppress the Kashmiris' ongoing liberation movement but they would never succeed in their designs. He appealed to the international community to break its silence and impress upon New Delhi to resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
On the other hand, the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, in a media interview in Srinagar maintained that Indian state terrorism during the past several decades could not intimidate the Kashmiri people into submission. He expressed serious concern over the ill treatment meted out to the illegally detained Kashmiri youth in jails.
A large number of government employees protested at the Press Enclave in Srinagar against the anti-people policies of the puppet administration. Indian police arrested many of the protesting employees when they tried to march towards Lal Chowk.
The Amnesty International in a statement issued in New Delhi condemned the puppet administration of occupied Kashmir for continuing to use the draconian law, Public Safety Act, to detain people without charge or trial in violation of their human rights. It deplored that the authorities often kept persons in detention even after the detentions had been quashed by the High Court of the territory.
Ananth Guruswamy, Director Amnesty International India, in a statement demanded repeal of the PSA terming its against the international human rights law.
