GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 22: The Amnesty team on Tuesday met Hurriyat (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and discussed the prevailing situation in Valley.
According to a Hurriyat spokesman the team said the conglomerate can act as a facilitator between the Amnesty and the people to Jammu and Kashmir to send information about the human rights abuses.
On the occasion, Mirwaiz hailed the Amnesty for highlighting the excesses committed on the Kashmiris in its report on Kashmir. “Hundreds of Kashmiris have been implicated in false cases and are languishing in various jails,” Mirwaiz told the team which was accompanied by the Valley’s noted human rights activist and program coordinator of Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society JKCCS), Khurram Parvez.
“It is the responsibility of the human rights organizations like the Amnesty International to put an end to the rights abuses and impress upon India to release the detained youth and political leaders. The Amnesty should also highlight the sufferings of Kashmiris at the international forums. It should also involve other human rights organizations and support the peaceful agitation for right to self-determinations of Kashmiris,” Mirwaiz told the team.
Meanwhile, the Hurriyat (M) has urged upon the people send the details of human rights abuses to the Amnesty International or mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
