Malik urges world to take notice of HR abuses in IHK

11 December, 2012

Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, has appealed to the world community to take serious notice of the gross human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian troops in the territory.

Muhammad Yasin Malik said this while talking to media men during a daylong token hunger strike organised by the JKLF at Budshah Chowk in Srinagar, today, on the occasion of World Human Rights Day, to denounce sentencing of two Kashmiri youth to life imprisonment by a TADA Court in Jammu.

Yasin Malik deplored that India was using life imprisonment against Kashmiri as a tool to suppress the ongoing liberation movement in the territory. However, he maintained that New Delhi through such tactics would not succeed in its designs. He demanded revocation of cases against all illegally detained liberation leaders and activists.

Hundreds of people including Hurriyet leaders, civil society activists, and intellectuals participated in the hunger strike. Those who were present on the occasion included Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Javed Ahmed Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Parveena Ahangar, Professor Rehman Rahi, Dr G Q Alaqaband, Z G Muhhamad, Dr Altaf, Professor Sheikh Showkat Hussain, Ajaz-ul-Haq, Arjumand Hussain Talib, Abdul Majeed Zargar, Dr Javed Iqbal, and Kumar G Wanchoo.

End.
