Islamabad, Nov 22 (Asia Free Press): Kashmiri leader on Monday has accused India of killing innocent young Kashmiri people in fake encounters.
In a statement, the Prime Minister Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan Niazi strongly condemned the spike in Indian forces’ atrocities in the Indian held territory of Jammu Kashmir and said Kashmiri youth are the main target of the Indian occupational forces in the Kashmir valley.
The valiant Kashmiri Youth are giving sacrifices for liberation of occupied Kashmir from Indian clutches. “No everlasting peace could be established unless and until the Kashmir issue was resolved in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people,” Niazi said.
Kashmiri premier also met the Chairman Senate of Pakistan Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani in Islamabad and expressed his views about the rise in Indian atrocities in the occupied territory of Kashmir. The two leaders discussed the latest situation prevailing in the valley and other matters of mutual interest.
Sajid Sanjrani, while talking with Niazi, also voiced grave concern about the heinous human rights violations and systematic murders of Kashmiris by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.
He said that Kashmiri youth were being martyred in fake encounters in Occupied Kashmir, and that their bodies are not being returned to their families.
Sanjrani further stated that the Pakistani nation and government stood behind their Kashmiri brothers and will continue to support them in their fight for the legitimate right to self-determination.
Kashmir has witnessed a spike in killings in recent days after the Indian forces killed four civilians on the night of November 15, in Hyderpora Srinagar, three of whom were later identified as civilians.
The bodies were not handed over to the families and were buried in Handwara district of Kashmir’s North Kashmir.
However, later the Indian authorities exhumed the bodies and handed them over to the families after they lodged a public protest.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association (JK-HCBA) has strongly condemned the extra-judicial killings of four civilians at the hands of Indian occupational forces. JK-HCBA also called for an independent probe in these killings by a sitting High Court judge in Indian Illegally Jammu and Kashmir to unfold the truth and prosecute and punish the guilty involved in the gruesome killings of innocent civilians.
The Indian authorities have arrested several human rights defenders and activists, journalists in Occupied Kashmir in a fresh series of raids and intimidations by the ‘counter-terrorism’ National Investigation Agency. Khurram Parvez an award-winning Kashmiri human rights activist was detained by NIA on Monday after his office and residence were raided in Srinagar.
