SRINAGAR: In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyat Conference senior leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that seeking death penalty for the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Muhammad Yasin Malik by the Indian infamous National Investigative Agency (NIA) has deeply disturbed the people of the territory.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement issued in Srinagar said unfortunately one after other such directives and decrees are brought in by the authorities who claim peace and development is their agenda. It seems a deliberate attempt to provoke and intimidate people and add to their concerns and fears, he added
He urged the Indian government, all political parties and the people of India to release all illegally detained Kashmiri political detainees and hundreds of youth, students, journalists, rights activists and traders lodged in different jails in India and the occupied territory.
The statement said the release of all innocent detainees will send a message of conciliation which will act as a catalyst for earning people’s trust and go a long way in resolving the lingering Kashmir dispute.
‘Modi regime conspiring to eliminate Yasin Milk’
All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Senior Vice Chairman Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar has said that Indian kangaroo courts have always disappointed Kashmiris.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar in a statement issued in Srinagar said these biased courts, functioning under the influence of Hindutva elements, are victimizing and punishing Kashmiris for demanding their birthright to self-determination.
He said the Modi regime is conspiring to eliminate Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Milk through its court by implicating him in concocted cases. Seeking capital punishment of Yasin Milk by Indian notorious National Investigation Agency (NIA) court is a deep-rooted conspiracy of judicial murder of another popular Kashmiri leader.
Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar lamented that the evil nexus of government and anti-Muslim Indian judiciary had claimed lives of many innocent Kashmiris and judicial murder of prominent Kashmiri martyrs Muhammad Maqbool Butt and Muhammad Afzal Guru are the recent examples of sheer injustice meted out to Kashmiris. Afzal Guru was executed to satisfy the so-called collective conscience of Indian people which is blot on the face of Indian judiciary, he added.
