June 28, 2022

Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyat Conference says people are living without basic human rights amid unrelenting cordon and search operations conducted by Indian army in the held valley.

In their separate statements in Srinagar, APHC leaders said killings, fake encounters, arrests and house raids have become order of the day especially after revocation of Kashmir’s special status by India on August 5, 2019.

High Court of occupied Jammu and Kashmir has quashed illegal detention of two Kashmiri youth held under black law, Public Safety Act and directed authorities to release them immediately.

The court in its order maintained that detaining authorities have failed to supply charges to detainees, rendering detention order illegal and unsustainable.

Senior APHC-AJK leader Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement in Islamabad called upon G-20 countries to avoid participating in an event in the UN-designated disputed Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, Amnesty International in a statement strongly condemned the arrest of human rights activist and strong advocate for the victims of 2002 Gujarat riots, Teesta Setalvad, by the Gujarat Police.

It called upon the Indian authorities to release her immediately.

Similarly, Washington-based Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent watchdog body, in a statement urged Indian authorities to immediately and unconditionally release journalist Mohammad Zubair and cease harassing him in retaliation for his work.

Mohammad Zubair was arrested by the Modi regime on yesterday. 

Mohammad Zubair, co-founder of a fact-checking website and a vocal critic of Modi government, was accused of insulting Hindu religious beliefs on Twitter.   

He also recently highlighted the issue of blasphemous comments of BJP officials against Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Rasool Allah Khatam-un-Nabiyyin SAWW.

 His tweet was widely shared and led to several Muslim countries lodging strong protests with India.

Opposition leaders and journalists in India have condemned the arrest and termed it a clear attempt by Hindu-nationalist government to clamp down on those who expose hate speech.
