IIOJK people reject India-sponsored elections, demand plebiscite
June 05, 2024

Political analysts have noted that the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir have rejected India-sponsored elections, demanding a plebiscite to determine their political future.  

However, with all avenues for self-determination closed under fascist India’s Modi-led regime, they have strategically participated in parliamentary elections in the territory to send a strong message to the BJP-led government.

National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah in a media interview in Srinagar acknowledged the significance of jailed Engineer Abdul Rasheed's victory in the Baramullah parliamentary constituency, saying it reflects the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

Meanwhile, a civilian was martyred in police custody in Pulwama district of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The civilian identified as Imtiaz Ahmed Pala, a mechanic by profession, was tortured to death at Litter Police Station in Pulwama district.

His family members and relatives staged a protest, demanding an impartial probe into custodial killing.

Meanwhile, APHC spokesman advocate Abdul Rashid Minhas in a statement in Srinagar denounced the killing of youth in custody and said that sacrifices of Kashmiri people will not go waste.
