Srinagar, September 15, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders expressing serious concern over the stepped up Indian state terrorism in the territory have appealed to the world community to play its role in settling the Kashmir dispute.
The illegally detained Secretary General of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, in a statement issued in Srinagar expressed the hope that the world leaders would press for honourable solution to the grave situation in occupied Kashmir during ongoing session of the UN General Assembly.
He hailed the statements of UK and Norway regarding the situation in the occupied territory and hoped that other nations of the world would extend their support to the Kashmir cause in the UN session. “During the UN session, the Kashmiris across the world must strongly raise voice against the oppression and atrocities unleashed on the people of occupied Kashmir by India. We also have pinned hopes on Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that he will highlight the crimes committed by Indian occupation forces in Kashmir in the same session and will call for taking positive initiatives in resolution of the longstanding dispute,” he added.
APHC leader, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, in a statement in Srinagar said that the puppet authorities had turned the entire Kashmir Valley into a garrison. “The whole exercise of ransacking, beating, maiming, looting, dishonouring is aimed at crushing the freedom sentiment and aspirations of the people living in the disputed territory,” he said. He, however, reiterated that each and every measure of oppression, suppression and tyranny will be faced with steadfastness and determination.
The incarcerated APHC leader, Hakeem Abdul Rasheed, in a statement said that the precious sacrifices of Kashmiri people would bring fruit soon and they would get freedom from Indian bondage.
Hurriyet leader, Shabbir Ahmad Dar, in his statement strongly condemned raid on the residence of resistance leader, Imtiyaz Reshi, by Indian police and harassment of his family members. He said that arrests and detentions could not stop the Kashmiris from achieving their basic right, the right to self-determination.
