In a statement issued here on Thursday the KIIR chairman while condemning rising tide of the Indian-state-sponsored terrorism in the valley said, “The ruthless killing of over a dozen Kashmiri youth by the Indian forces is enough to stir the conscience of the world community that has maintained a criminal silence over the unending sufferings of Kashmiris who are being killed, maimed, tortured, terrorized and humiliated by the Indian troops deployed in every nuke and cranny of the valley.
