India’s repressive tactics cannot suppress freedom movement: APHC
In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference say India’s repressive tactics cannot suppress the freedom movement of the Kashmiri people.
APHC Chairman Syed Ali Gilani and General Secretary, Shabbir Ahmed Shah in their statements said that Kashmir was a political dispute which could not be resolved through military might.
The leaders said the remarks of General Bipin Rawat depicted India’s intransigence and arrogance of power.
People observed complete shutdown and held forceful demonstrations in Pulwama town, today, against arrest of a youth by Indian police during a raid, last night.
On the other hand, former Indian Minister P Chidambaram addressing a meeting organised in Hyderabad by Manthan, said that India had nearly lost Kashmir because the government used brute force to quell dissent in occupied Kashmir.
