In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that Kashmiri journalists are being booked under draconian laws as part of Modi-led fascist Indian government’s cruel policy to keep the outside world uninformed about its war crimes perpetrated by its brutal forces against the Kashmiri people.

The APHC General Secretary Molvi Bashir Ahmad, in a statement in Srinagar today (Wednesday), said scores of journalists have been killed, injured, abducted, threatened and tortured simply for performing their professional duties in the occupied territory since 1989.

Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference Chairman Shabbir Ahmed Dar, in a statement in Srinagar, said the Kashmiris would never forget the crimes like countless massacres, rapes, destruction of property and desecration of places of worship, perpetrated by Indian troops in the territory.

He asked India to respect the resolutions passed by the United Nations on Kashmir.

Activists of Jammu and Kashmir National Panther Party staged a protest demonstration against Modi government’s brutal measures at exhibition ground in Jammu.

The protesters were led by Harsh Dev Singh and they condemned the imposition of brutal taxes on Kashmiri people, rising inflation and increase in petroleum prices.
