On IHR Day, Hurriyat (M) stages dharna in New Delhi

Srinagar, Dec 10: On the International Human Rights Day, a delegation of Hurriyat Conference (M) along with three dozens women victims of rights violations on Monday staged a dharna at Parliament Street in New Delhi against the atrocities and excesses being committed in JK allegedly by the forces.
 The amalgam delegation was headed by its leaders Zaffar Akbar Bhat and Yasmeen Raja. Both the leaders on the instructions of Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq had arrived in Delhi along with widows and half-widows whose husbands were either killed or subjected to enforced disappearance by the armed forces in Kashmir, a Hurriyat (M) spokesman said in a statement.  
 “The leaders and victims were carrying placards which bore inscriptions against the continuous human rights violation in Kashmir. After the dharna, the delegation participated in a seminar titled “Women Solidarity for The Rights of Kashmiri Women” organized by YMCA.
 Speaking on the occasion, Zaffar alleged that the rights violations were on peak in Kashmir. He alleged that the human rights situation was worsening day by day in Kashmir and becoming a cause of serious concern for people.
 “Kashmiris are fighting for their right to self determination since 1947. The armed forces and other agencies were involved in suppressing the popular movement and using oppressive methods break the will of people,” said Zaffar.
 He delivered message of the Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in which he had stressed on the Indian civil society and people to exert pressure on New Delhi to stop human rights violation in Jammu and Kashmir.
 Bhat also expressed serious concern over the life imprisonment sentences warded to Kashmiri youth by the courts.     
 “The victims also narrated the tales of worsening rights violation in Kashmir by relating incidents and providing statistical data thereof,” said the spokesman.
 Expressing solidarity with the Kashmiri people, the participants from different parts of India expressed concern over the ‘worsening human rights situation’ in Kashmir.\
 “They supported the demand for demilitarization, revocation of laws like AFSPA, etc., from Jammu and Kashmir,” said the spokesman.
 Meanwhile, the senior leader of Hurriyat Conference (M), Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK), and vice-chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement Tufail Ahmad Bhat on the occasion of Human Rights Day today appealed international human rights bodies to take a serious note of the ‘countless human rights violations’ committed in Valley allegedly by forces.
  In a statement, Tufail said, “Unless there is complete demilitarization of Jammu and Kashmir, no civilian is safe.”
