In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and other Hurriyat leaders and organizations have demanded an impartial investigation into all the massacres carried out by Indian troops in the territory to punish the perpetrators.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the demand has been made on the completion of 28 years to the Bijbehara massacre, wherein over 50 innocent Kashmiris were killed on this day in 1993 when the troops of Indian Border Security Force opened fire on peaceful demonstrators who were protesting against the Indian military siege of Srinagar’s Hazratbal Shrine.
The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar paid rich tributes to the Bijbehara martyrs and reaffirmed the Kashmiris’ resolve to continue the mission of their martyrs till it reached its logical conclusion.
Other Hurriyat leaders and organizations in their statements said innocent human lives will continue to be lost in the territory until the Indian troops involved in mass killings were punished.
The APHC-AJK at a prayer session held at its office in Islamabad paid glowing tributes to the martyrs of the Bijbehara tragedy.
Meanwhile, the occupation authorities once again disallowed people from offering Juma prayers at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar on Friday.
The occupation authorities have shut down the Internet service in different areas of the territory and seized hundreds of vehicles during a crackdown ahead of Indian Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to the Valley this weekend.
On the other hand, human rights groups have documented the violence against Christians by Hindutva groups from all Indian states and released a fact-finding report titled ‘Christians under attack in India’.
