APHC Pays Tribute to Martyred Youths, Calls for International Intervention in IIOJK

The All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has offered heartfelt tributes to the three youths who were martyred by Indian troops in the Kulgam district of occupied Jammu and Kashmir. This solemn occasion has rekindled the resolve of Kashmiris to persist in their struggle until the aspirations of the martyrs are realized.

The tragic incident occurred during a cordon and search operation conducted by Indian troops in the Redwani area of Kulgam. Alongside the loss of lives, numerous residential houses were destroyed through the use of chemical substances, intensifying the anguish felt by the local populace.

Advocate Abdul Rashid Minhas, the spokesman for APHC, conveyed profound homage to Basit Ahmad Dar and the other two youths, emphasizing that their sacrifices constitute a precious asset to the freedom movement. He urged fellow Kashmiris to honor the martyrs by steadfastly continuing their mission until the ultimate goal of freedom is achieved.

Strongly denouncing the use of chemical substances by Indian troops, Minhas underscored that such egregious actions epitomize the ongoing terrorism perpetrated by occupation forces in the region. He condemned the escalating repression inflicted upon Kashmiris by the Hindutva Indian regime led by the BJP, which seeks to marginalize them in their own homeland. Furthermore, he highlighted the systematic confiscation of Kashmiris’ properties as a punitive measure for their unwavering support of the freedom struggle.

Expressing concern for the plight of illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists languishing in prisons across occupied Jammu and Kashmir and India, Minhas decried the deprivation of basic facilities, including adequate medical care, afforded to these detainees.

The APHC spokesperson fervently appealed to the United Nations to take cognizance of the grave war crimes perpetrated by India in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. He urged the international community to exert pressure on New Delhi to address the Kashmir dispute in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions, thereby facilitating a just and peaceful resolution to the longstanding conflict.
