|India suppressing Kashmiris’ struggle by force: Ansari
Srinagar, October 12 : In occupied Kashmir, senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Maulana Abbas Ansari has said that India is using brute force to suppress the peaceful movement of Kashmiri people.
Maulana Abbas in a statement in Srinagar strongly condemned the use of brute force by Indian troops against peaceful protestors that left two innocent youth dead on Friday. He pointed out that this had happened when Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh was on a visit here and speaks volumes about his zero tolerance promise to human right abuses by Indian troops in the occupied territory adding that it seems that the troops had been given license to kill Kashmiris.
The APHC leader maintained that India would not succeed to break the will of Kashmiri people for continuing their struggle for right to self-determination. He urged the international community to take notice of the matter and impress upon India to stop the killings of innocent people of occupied Kashmir.
Meanwhile, Muhammad Azam Inqalabi, the Patron of Jammu Kashmir Mahaz-e-Azadi, a component of the APHC, in a statement in Srinagar strongly denounced the use of force by the troops against the peaceful protesters. He said that the cowardly treatment meted out to the peaceful protestors by Indian troops signifies that India, which claims to be a democracy, was pursuing anti-democratic policies in occupied Kashmir to muzzle popular voice.
