Hurriyat Conference (M) today welcomed the statement of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in which it has asked New Delhi to stop the “oppression” in Kashmir and resolve Kashmir issue in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions.
“Not only the Islamic countries but also Britain, France, Germany, China, Italy and various other European countries have been calling upon India to stop killings in Jammu Kashmir and put an immediate end to human rights violations. These countries have also asked India to save the entire region from death and destruction by resolving the long-pending Kashmir issue through meaningful and result-oriented dialogue process,” a spokesman of the Hurriyat said in a statement today. He welcomed the statement of the Government of Turkey which announced to send its fact finding mission to Kashmir to assess the “deteriorating situation, killings and human rights violations” in Kashmir, as it chairs the human rights commission of the OIC.
Meanwhile, the Hurriyat (M) today condemned the extension in the detention of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. It also decried continuous house detention of Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani and shifting of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik to JIC Humhama. It also condemned the deployment of CRPF outside Geelani’s Hyderpora residence.
“The amalgam has also condemned the slapping of the infamous PSA on human rights activist Khuram Parvaz, arrests and house arrests of other resistance leaders, workers and youth, terming these arbitrary measures as totalitarian and dictatorial which reflect the arrogance of the ruling regime,” a spokesman of the Hurriyat , in a statement today, said.
Expressing satisfaction over massive public demonstrations and marches by people in every nook and corner of Kashmir despite curfew, restrictions and curbs for the last 75 days continuous days, the spokesman condemned the beating up of people in various areas of Kashmir.
“We thank the people of Banihal and Kishtwar for their continuous support and involvement in the current phase of the freedom struggle,” the spokesman said. “It is a befitting reply to India’s deliberate and misleading narrative that the freedom movement is limited to the valley.”
The spokesman prayed for the immediate recovery of Hurriyat leader Javed Ahmad Mir who underwent a successful eye surgery at New Delhi.
