In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K), the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has expressed deep concern over the hike in killing and arrest spree unleashed by brutal Indian forces in the territory.
APHC Working Vice Chairman, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar in a statement issued in Srinagar deplored that the Indian troops were committing the worst kind of human rights violations, on one pretext or the other.
He urged the UN and international community to fulfill their pledges with respect to the implementation of the Security Council resolutions on Kashmir.
Meanwhile, the regional political parties have stepped up their demand for restoration of statehood of Jammu and Kashmir with Articles 370 and 35A.
Member of Indian Parliament and National Conference leader, Justice (retired) Hasnain Masoodi along with another member Kunwar Danish Ali while interacting with the media in Srinagar emphasized the need to raise the demand to restore pre 5 August 2019 position in one voice.
He stressed that the revocation of Kashmir’s special status caused further alienation among the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
On the other hand, Indian police arrested 10 youth during raids and cordon and search operations at different places in Pulwama district.
At least twenty-eight shops were also gutted in midnight blaze in Baba Reshi area of Tangmarg in Baramulla district, today.
