Wani's martyrdom imbued Kashmir freedom struggle with new life: Sartaj
Says India cannot strangulate the indigenous struggle of Kashmiri people at gun point
Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said Burhan Wani's martyrdom has given new life to the struggle of Kashmiri people for their right to self-determination.
In an interview on the occasion of Burhan Wani's martyrdom anniversary, he said India cannot strangulate the indigenous struggle of Kashmiri people at gun point.
He said India suspended internet and mobile services in the Occupied Kashmir on Wani's martyrdom anniversary, but it could not dilute Kashmiri youth's zeal to mark the sacrifice of their hero.
The Advisor said India boasts of its democracy, but it is not ready to accept democratic right for Kashmiris and has deployed about 700,000 troops to suppress their voice.
He urged the international community to take notice of the grave human rights violations in the Occupied Kashmir. He said India is heating up situation on the Line of Control to divert attention from the human rights violations in the Occupied Kashmir.
Sartaj Aziz condemned New Delhi's attempts to alter demography of the Occupied Kashmir by settling Hindus in the valley from other parts of India.
