Moon’s remarks unrealistic: Hurriyat (M)
Srinagar, Dec 21: Terming UN general secretary, Ban-Ki-Moon’s statement on rights violations in Kashmir as “unrealistic,” the Hurriyat (M) on Tuesday said the Wikileaks expose on torture and other abuses committed by armed forces in JK should serve as an eye opener for the international community.
“The recent revelations made by the WikiLeaks about the continued and indiscriminate rights violations and other inhuman acts perpetrated in J&K should serve as an eye opener for all the nations believing in justice and humanity,” Hurriyat spokesman said.
“Killing of 115 civilians including teenage students and women, and injuring hundreds of others besides incarcerating youth in various jails during last few months are a glaring instance of unabated rights violations in the Valley,” he said.
He said the Indo-Pak relations would not improve until the rights violations were stopped and Kashmir issue was resolved in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of people.
Quoting its team that concluded its visit to various jails and interrogation centres including JCI, Jammu, Kot Balwal, Kathua and Hira Nagar, the spokesman expressed concern over ‘denial’ of medical aid and other basic facilities to the detainees in these jails. He alleged that substandard food was being provided to them.
