In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and other Hurriyat leaders and organizations have strongly condemned the reign of terror unleashed by Indian troops in the occupied territory, especially in the Kashmir valley.
The APHC in a statement issued in connection with the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, today (Thursday) , called upon the United Nations to force India to end modern-day slavery in the occupied territory.
The statement said that Indian troops enjoying unbridled powers under black laws are perpetrating crimes against the Kashmiris who are struggling to break shackles of Indian slavery and secure their right to self-determination, acknowledged by the World Body.
Meanwhile, the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists in a tweet, said that it stands in solidarity with Kashmiri journalist Sajad Gul who has been harassed by the Indian authorities for his journalistic work in IIOJK.
The journalist body called for dropping charges against Sajad Gul and allowing him to report without interference.
