Srinagar, March 13, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai has said that the massacre of the Kashmiris by Indian forces on daily basis has exposed New Delhi as an aggressor before the comity of the nations.
Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement issued in Srinagar said India has never been serious about addressing the Kashmir dispute in its historical perspective. On the contrary, he added that the country had been dealing with the political dispute with an iron fist and Delhi’s military approach was guiding BJP’s policy on Kashmir. He reiterated that such approach would neither alter the fact of the Kashmir dispute nor would people of Kashmir surrender their demand for its just settlement.
