The All Parties Hurriyat Conference while strongly condemning the ban on pro-freedom parties in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, has termed the action as part of Modi regime’s relentless campaign to crush the Kashmiris' ongoing struggle for right to self-determination.

The APHC spokesman, Advocate Abdul Rashid Minhas, in a statement in Srinagar deplored that banning legitimate political voices has become a new normal terming it as a flagrant violation of basic human rights.

He said India has deprived Kashmiris of all basic rights and freedoms for the last over seven decades.

He said that India must realize the fact that it cannot subdue the people’s legitimate struggle by imposing sanctions on political activists and their activities in the occupied territory.

The Indian Home Ministry had banned the Muslim Conference Jammu and Kashmir under the black law, Unlawful Activities Prevention Act for a period of five years the other day.

Earlier, the Indian authorities extended the ban on Jamaat-e-Islami in IIOJK for another five years.

New Delhi has already outlawed the APHC, Muslim League, Democratic Freedom Party, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front and Dukhtaran-e-Millat for spearheading the movement to secure the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination in line with UN resolutions.

Meanwhile, in its ongoing drive to snatch the Kashmiris’ assets on the charge of supporting the freedom movement, the occupation authorities attached immovable properties of four more people in Kangan area of Ganderbal district.

On the other hand, National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah addressing a party function in Srinagar urged people to work together to secure their unique identity illegally taken by the BJP-led government on 5th of August 2019.
