Srinagar: In Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has organized a rally of its working vice chairman, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar and other Kashmiri youth across the valley. Strongly condemned the legal arrest. An APHC spokesperson in a statement issued in Srinagar also condemned the arrest of Saima Jan, a woman from Frisal village in Kulgam district and the filing of a case against her under the Black Law, Illegal Activities (Prevention) Act.

He further said that Indian forces were targeting Kashmiri women and children in the IOJK to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation in order to force Kashmiris to give up their struggle for independence. Could not stop

The spokesperson said that it was India’s misconception that crackdowns, detentions and arrests could disappoint Hurriyat leaders, activists and ordinary Kashmiris. He said that India’s claim to be a democracy was baseless as it had deprived Kashmiris of their internationally recognized right to self-determination. He reiterated the commitment of Kashmiris to continue their struggle for independence till the end.

The spokesperson urged the civilized world to take stern notice of the grave human rights violations committed by Indian forces in the IOJK and play its role in resolving the Kashmir issue as soon as possible.
