Islamabad: Altaf Ahmed Bhat, President Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement (JKSM) has expressed deep concern over the surge in the killing of youth, destruction of residential houses and other human rights violations by Indian force in occopied Kashmir. He said the report of US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has fully exposed the black face of India before the world.
Bhat said that despite the global coronavirus pandemic and the holy month of the Ramadan, the Indian armed forces were committing worst atrocities and repression on the defenseless Kashmiris.
JKSM president said that the RSS-backed Modi government is practically implementing in phased manner its settler-colonial plan in occupied Kashmir on the Israeli pattern to deprive the Kashmiris of their homeland, thus turning Kashmir into another Palestine.
In a statement released on Saturday, the President Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement (JKSM) expressed his deep concern about the treatment of Indian Muslims and called on the United Nations and OIC to take necessary and urgent measures to preserve the rights of Muslims there.
The US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has called for the State Department to add India to a blacklist of countries that have failed to uphold religious rights for their citizens.
Bhat further said that India’s true face of barbarism has been exposed in the world at large and it was high time that the world bodies, including the United Nations, took strict notice and ensure end to the atrocities and barbarism being committed against Kashmiri people and Muslims in India.
Bhat said we appeal to United Nations, OIC and all other Humanitarian and Health Organizations to pressurize India to release Dr Hameed Fayaz, Zafar Akber Bhat, Yasin Malik, Asiya Andrabi’, Shabir Ahmed Shah, Masarat Alam Butt and all other leaders and Kashmiris from jails.
