ISLAMABAD – Expressing grave concern over the rising incidents of Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir, senior Hurriyat leader and Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir National Front (JKNF) Altaf Hussain Tuesday sought the international community’s help to end systematic genocide of Kashmiris.
In a statement issued here, the JKNF leader said the recent spate of violence led to the killing of dozens of youth in the restive region.
Referring to fresh acts of Indian state terrorism in Kulgam, Shopian and Islamabad Wani said, “Gravity of the situation in the occupied territory can be gauged from the fact in less than 24 hours Indian forces have killed seven Kashmiri youth.”
Terming it as worst kind of state sponsored terrorism he said Indian occupation forces deployed in the length and breadth of Kashmir had broken all records of cruelty and barbarism by unleashing reign of terror in the region.
He said cordon and search operations and nocturnal raids being carried out by the Indian forces continue unabated in the region.
He regrettably noted that there was no letup in Indian atrocities even in this holy month of Ramazan, adding the systematic violence in restive region was a deep rooted conspiracy to push Kashmiri youth to wall.
Highlighting the dangerous dimensions of the Kashmir conflict Wani said the unresolved Kashmir dispute was a major cause and consequence of violence and rights abuses in the region.
He appealed the world human rights organizations to take notice of the Indian brutalities and play their proactive role to stop this vicious cycle of violence in the region.
He said it was high time that the world should come forward in a big way to help resolve this dispute one and for all.
He said it would be great travesty of justice if international community continued with its apathy and indifference towards the unending miseries of Kashmiris who happened to be the worst victim of this deadly conflict.
