Militant outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) Chief Mehmood Shah has condemned the "inhuman" treatment of pro-freedom prisoners by the state police in various jails in Jammu and Kashmir.
"This is a coward act on behalf of India. There are rights of prisoners everywhere in the world, while Indian forces are openly violating all human rights and norms. Innocent prisoners of Baramulla Jail are deprived of food and medicine along with basic facilities. Many of the Kashmiris languishing in these jails are suffering from life threatening medical conditions, having no access to any treatment or medical care. Their families are not being allowed to meet them, and severe torture is being carried out on them to subdue their desire of Kashmir's freedom," Shah said in a statement to local news agency CNS.
"The cases of these prisoners are being shifted out of state and they are not being presented in front of courts on the dates of hearing. This brazen atrocity and subjugation has been continuing unabated since decades, but Kashmiris have not given up their struggle, nor will they ever do that. This only shows the desperation, arrogance and defeat of Indian mindset," he said.
"Kashmiris are writing a glorious history of their renewed struggle and global humanitarian organizations and international community has to play their part in pressurizing India to seize her inhuman, coward and brutal practices," he said.
Shah paid glorious tributes to the Jammu martyrs of 6th November 1947. "The blood of these martyrs will not go in vain and should not be forgotten," he said saying independent human rights organizations and UN must investigate "this genocide and bring the facts in front of the world." CNS
