The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has expressed grave concern over the ongoing killings and arrests in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

APHC spokesman, Advocate Abdul Rashid Minhas, in a statement issued in Srinagar said that India's military might and anti-Kashmir policies have failed to resolve the dispute, and reiterated that Kashmiris are willing to die for freedom but not surrender.

He urged the international community to intervene and stop killings of innocent Kashmiris.

The Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party also called on India to create a conducive environment for a peaceful resolution, rather than spreading falsehoods and blaming neighbors.

Meanwhile, in a crackdown on pro-freedom activities, Indian forces launched a massive operation across the Jammu region, arresting several people, mostly Muslims.

The joint operation by the Indian Army, police and paramilitary forces targeted various areas in Doda, Kathua, Reasi, Rajouri, Poonch, and Samba districts.

On the otherhand, chief of the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference, Farooq Abdullah has called on the Indian government to resume talks with Pakistan to resolve outstanding issues.

Meanwhile, political analysts have slammed India's decision to order television channels to show the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir as part of the Indian map, in clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

They said that the United Nations recognizes the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir, including Ladakh, as a disputed territory, making India's move a brazen defiance of international law.
