All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC-M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Thursday welcomed the statement of United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) High Commissioner, Zeid Ra'ad Al Husein in which he had expressed concern over the current situation in Jammu Kashmir and sought permission of both Governments of India and Pakistan for sending Council team here to inquire about the human rights violations.
Mirwaiz, in a statement, has asked the GoI to immediately allow the UNHRC team to the visit Kashmir and "take stock of the worst human rights violations and killings happening in Jammu Kashmir."
Expressing hope that GoI would give up on its 'adamant' stance and facilitate the UNHRC team to visit Kashmir, he said, "this would help the international community to know the reality and ground situation in Kashmir."
Mirwaiz urged the Government of Pakistan also to allow the UNHRC team to visit Pakistan administered Kashmir, as "it would only expose Government of India's propaganda on PaK and call its bluff."
Meanwhile, APHC-M Chairman said, "the cold-blooded murder of a young lecturer –Shabir Ahmad Monga son of Wali Muhammad of Khrew Pampore– who was dragged out of his home, beaten and then mercilessly killed in custody will even put the Nazis to shame. The country that prides itself of patronising 'Ahimsa' is sinking herself further in the morass of tyranny, with no remorse."
Mirwaiz further said, "let the regime know that its anti-human tactics of blocking supply of fuel and essential food items like milk and vegetables from reaching to people so that they suffer and are brought down on their knees and taught a lesson, will not deter a nation that has shown such tremendous resilience for their just cause."
"It seems that GoI has forgotten the history of its own freedom struggle wherein the people of India did not bow before the British repression which, though, was of a far milder nature than what we are being subjected to."
