Srinagar, January 13, 2022 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that shielded by draconian laws, Indian occupation forces have taken full control of civil administration and judicial institutions in the territory whereby people are arrested, tortured and killed with impunity.
The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar denounced the inhuman behaviour meted out to the Kashmiri political prisoners detained on account of raising a legitimate demand for right to self- determination, recognised by the United Nations Security council resolutions and supported by the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Terming the ongoing resistance movement against the Indian illegal occupation as purely a political and indigenous movement, the spokesman said that the Indian imperialistic system of governance is dealing with the common masses with iron fists and trample their fundamental rights through regular army and paramilitary forces.
Referring to the plight of illegally detained leaders and activists of All Parties Hurriyat Conference at the hands of fascist jail authorities of India, the spokesman said that the detainees have been lodged in death cells without basic amenities.
Unavailability of proper medical facilities and unhygienic dietary requirements and suffocating congestion have made the lives of the prisoners vulnerable to multiple illnesses, especially when the Covid 19 and now omicron pandemic has engulfed the whole world, the prisoners have been left at the mercy of the jail authorities.
Paying rich tributes to the martyrs killed in custody by physical violence, judicial partisanship, political vendetta or medical negligence, including Muhammad Maqbool Butt, Muhammad Afzal Guru, Syed Ali Gilani, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Ali Muhammad Ahanger, Mushtaq Ahmad Butt and Abdur Rasheed, the spokesman criticized India for its criminal attitude towards the ailing Hurriyat leaders, languishing in notorious jails of India and the occupied territory. He warned that if anything untoward happened to the resistance leaders and activists, the sole responsibility would lie on India.
The spokesman saluted the steadfastness of the incarcerated leaders, including Masarrat Aalam Butt, , Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Dr. Shafi Shariety, Dr Muhammad Qasim Fakhtoo, Aasiya Andrabi, Fehmeeda Sofi, Naheeda Nasreen, Dr G M Butt, Ameer Hamza, Muhammad Yousaf Mir, Muhammad Yousaf Falahi, Altaf Fantosh,Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Raja Merajuddin Kalwal, Nayeem Ahamad Khan, Shahid Ul Islam, Farooq Ahamad DAR, Zahoor Ahamad Watali,Maqsood Ahamad Bhat, Shahid Yousuf, Shakeel Yousaf, Mujahid Sehraie, Raashid Sehraie, Assadullah Parray,Shokat Hakim, Merajuddin Nanda,Rafiq Ahamad Ganaie, Peer Hilal Ahmed, Ab Rashid Lone, Shakeel Butt, Ghazanfar Iqbal Aabid Zargar, Shokat Ahamad Khan, Nazir Ahamad Sheikh, Zahoor Ahamad Butt, Mehmood Topiwala, Muhammad Ayoub Mir, Muhammad Ayoub Dar, Gh.
