Human Rights Day has no meaning for IIOJK’s oppressed people: APHCDecember 10, 2023
Srinagar: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that the Human Rights Day has no meaning for the oppressed people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir as they have been deprived of all their basic rights and freedoms enshrined in the United Nations charter.
The APHC incarcerated leaders, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Nayeem Ahmed Khan, in their separate messages from New Delhi’s infamous Tihar jail said occupied Jammu and Kashmir is the only region of the world where the entire population has been deprived of all human rights. They said the worst situation in IIOJK demands the attention of all international bodies, including the United Nations, and the powerful countries of the world.
Jailed APHC leaders Molvi Bashir Ahmad Irfani and Bilal Siddiqi in their separate messages from the IIOJK jails said celebrating Human Rights Day is like rubbing salt on the bleeding wounds of Kashmiris as the United Nations has made no sincere effort to restore their rights and they continue to suffer under tyranny and subjugation. They deplored that over one million trigger-happy troops were committing heinous crimes against humanity in IIOJK to intimidate the Kashmiris into submission.
APHC leaders, including Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, Abdul Ahad, Yasmeen Raja, Ms Hafza Bano, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Khawaja Firdous, Fayaz Jafari, Syed Sibte Shabbir Qumi, Javaid Ahmad Mir, Ghulam Nabi War, Hakeem Abdul Rasheed, Molvi Musaib Nadvi, Muhammad Shafi Lone, Mir Shahid Saleem, Narender Singh Khalsa, Umar Mughal, Abdul Samad Inqilabi and Mohammad Aqib in their separate statements expressed concern over the terrible situation of human rights in IIOJK.
They said the grave human rights abuses by Indian troops in the occupied territory are not only heart-wrenching but also an open violation of the United Nations Charter and called upon the international community and world human rights organizations to take cognizance of the Indian state terrorism and fulfill their responsibilities to ensure the protection of the basic rights of Kashmiris.
The spokesman of the High Court Bar Association in IIOJK, Ghulam Nabi Shaheen in his statement in Srinagar said the human rights situation in the territory is grave as human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists alongside the common masses are facing the worst Indian state terrorism.
