Srinagar, July 22, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has strongly condemned the open aggression of Indian troops and police against the innocent Kashmiris.
The APHC Chairman addressing a gathering at Kanel Masjid in Mahraj Gunj area of Srinagar said that the use of firepower against the peaceful protesters and murdering young Kashmiris had become the inalienable part of duties of Indian forces’ personnel deployed in the occupied territory. He termed the recent killing of Suhail Ahmad Lone of Kulgam, injuring of scores of other people by the troops and police, and wanton arrest of youth from old city Srinagar as a clear case of state terrorism.
The Mirwaiz maintained that governments around the world had not used force to stop or kill the protesters demonstrating against naked aggression of Israelis against Palestinians. Ironically, he said that it had become the habit of puppet administration in occupied Kashmir to suppress the peaceful protests and they followed the same policy of killing and arresting Kashmiris for expressing solidarity with the Palestinians.
The APHC Chairman pointed out that the police and troops were misusing the special powers granted to them by the authorities. He said that the puppet regime wanted to repeat 2010 like incidents when they killed more than 120 youth in peaceful protests in the territory.
The Mirwaiz further stated that target killing of youth, blasting of houses, use of force against peaceful protesters, wanton arrests, and imposition of curfews were some of the Israeli-type tactics being used by India in Kashmir.
