NC, PDP playing politics on human rights issue: APDP
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 28: The Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) today staged a demonstration here accusing both ruling National Conference and opposition PDP of “playing politics” on the issue of human rights.
“Both the parties (NC and PDP) are playing politics over the issue of human rights....The subject finds favour with both these parties but only when they are out of power,” APDP spokesperson Ghulam Nabi Mir said after members of the organisation staged a peaceful demonstration.
Mir accused both the parties of using human rights as one of the important election planks during 2002 and 2008 assembly elections.
“While sitting on the opposition benches, both of them have accused the ruling party of committing human rights violations, but did not take steps to bring the perpetrators to justice,” he alleged.
It is quite apparent that only the struggle of relatives of the disappeared persons with the help of the international organisations can persuade the government to address the issue seriously, to know the fate of their loved ones and bringing the perpetrators to justice, he said.
According to figures available with APDP, about 10,000 persons have allegedly disappeared after being arrested by security agencies since militancy broke out in the state two decades back.
