SRINAGAR: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has voiced deep concern over the killing of eight Kashmiris by Indian troops in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
In a statement issued in Srinagar, an APHC spokesman deplored the actions of what he described as blood-thirsty Indian troops, stating that they have unleashed a reign of terror across the occupied territory. The spokesman highlighted the killing of eight innocent individuals in fake encounters in Baramulla, Kulgam, and Rajouri over the past three days. He asserted that these incidents, part of India’s alleged plan of slow genocide, indicate that the lives of the Kashmiri people are not secure in the hands of the Indian forces.
The spokesman accused Narendra Modi’s India, under the dominance of Hindutva-influenced military establishments, of conducting a slow-motion genocide of Kashmiris through extrajudicial killings. He claimed that Indian troops, shielded by draconian laws, are mercilessly engaging in daily acts of murder, arrest, and torture against the Kashmiri population.
Indian Forces Extrajudicial Killings of the Kashmiris Youth
Highlighting the intensified crackdown on Kashmiris since RR Swain, affiliated with RSS, assumed the role of Director General of Police in occupied Kashmir, the spokesman accused Swain of being on a mission to systematically target Kashmiri youth through extrajudicial killings.
He asserted that massive arrests during house raids had become a routine occurrence under Swain’s leadership, suggesting a broader agenda to change the demographic composition of the occupied territory inspired by Hindutva ideologies.
Paying tribute to the martyrs, the spokesman expressed confidence that their sacrifices will not be in vain and the Kashmiri people will eventually achieve freedom from Indian oppression. He strongly condemned the continued house detention of senior APHC leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and the ban on Friday prayers at the historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar.
The spokesman asked the United Nations to intervene and halt what he referred to as Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir. He urged the UN to play a role in resolving the long-standing Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
