In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have denounced the tragic incident of Kunanposhpora mass rape, perpetrated by Indian men in uniform in Kupwara district.

According to Kashmir Media Service, on the night of 23 February 1991, terrorists of Indian Army in uniform entered the houses in Kunanposhpora village and gang-raped around 100 women from eight to eighty years old without any shame.

APHC General Secretary, Molvi Bashir Ahmed in a statement issued in Srinagar, today (Tuesday), deplored that India had denied access to international human rights organizations to the occupied territory to probe the shameful act.

Meanwhile, an Indian court, in fabricated cases, framed terrorism, sedition and other charges against Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson Aasiya Andrabi and her two associates Fehmeeda Sofi and Nahida Nasreen.

Pakistan-origin spouses of former Kashmiri mujahideen, during a protest held at Press Enclave in Srinagar, today, reiterated their demand to issue them travel documents to enable them to visit their parents in Pakistan.

They said that they would continue to protest till their just demands are met. They added that if the Indian govt didn’t accept them, they should deport them to Pakistan.

Speakers at a seminar held at APHC-AJK office in Islamabad called upon the international community to take notice of Indian brutalities in the occupied territory.

A sit-in protest was organized by International Forum for Human Rights and Justice J&K at Burhan Chowk, Muzaffarabad, to condemn the Kunanposhpora incident.
