APHC Chairman underlined need for meaningful tripartite talks on Kashmir
Indian leaders can resolve lingering dispute by respecting Kashmiris' aspirations: Gilani
The APHC Chairman Syed Ali Gilani has underlined the need to hold meaningful tripartite talks amongst Pakistan, India and the genuine Kashmiri leadership to resolve the Kashmir dispute.
In a statement in Srinagar on Saturday, he said Indian leaders can resolve the lingering dispute by respecting the Kashmiris' aspirations, but instead of taking such steps they were relying on their military might to strangulate the voice of the people of Kashmir.
The Mirwaiz-led Hurriyet forum in a statement strongly condemned the continued house arrest and detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Aasiya Andrabi, Masarrat Aalam Butt, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Fehmeeda Sofi, Mushtaq-ul-Islam, Shakeel Ahmed Bakhshi and other leaders.
In a statement in Srinagar, Dukhtaran-e-Millat said that the puppet authorities had disrespected court's order by not shifting the party Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi and her associate, Fehmeeda Sofi, from Jammu's Amphalla jail to Srinagar.
Meanwhile, Indian troops, in their fresh acts of state terrorism, martyred one more Kashmiri youth in Bandipora district, today, raising the number of killed in fake encounters in the territory to seven since yesterday.
The troops martyred a youth during a military operation in Gurez area of Bandipora, today. The troops had killed six youth during a similar operation in Uri area of Baramulla district, last evening.
In Geneva, Kashmiri representative, Syed Faiz Naqashbandi, met the UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, Ms Kate Gilmore, and apprised her about the stepped up Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir. He informed her that Indian Government had imposed ban on Internet services and social media in the occupied territory to hide its atrocities from the world.
