Shamim Shawl (Hurriyat Leader):

There is very complex situation in Kashmir; innocent and old age people are being killed, unprecedented atrocities are being inflicted and Hurriyat leader are being arrested. We request Pakistan to prepare a strong case for International Court of Justice. The Modi administration is committing genocide of Kashmiris. India, proud of its power, is trying to suppress freedom movement by force. It is not realizing that innocent Kashmiris, women and children are fighting for their rights and their efforts cannot be suppressed. In past, in 2008 and 2010, India did the same campaign against Kashmiris. Our political leaders are being arrested and killed this time. We are fighting and will never accept Indian brutal rule in Kashmir.
