Wednesday – September 23, 2020
SRINAGAR (India): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), Indian troops in their fresh act of State terrorism martyred a youth in Badgam district.

According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS), the youth was killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation (CASO), jointly launched by Indian army, central reserve police force (CRPF) and police in Charar-e-Sharief area of the district.

A house was also destroyed by the troops. The killing triggered ‘anti-India’ protests in the area. Earlier, an Indian soldier was critically injured in an attack in the same area.

Senior Hurriyat leader Abdul Ghani Butt speaking at a gathering in Sopore said the human rights’ violations being perpetrated by India in IIOJK are intolerable and added that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will continue their struggle till they achieve their final goal.

A delegation of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat-e-Jammu and Kashmir (TeH-JK) during a visit to the residence of a martyred woman in Batamaloo, Srinagar said that Hurriyat leaders and activists, especially those associated with TeH were being victimised by brutal Indian forces.

Hurriyat leaders, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, Abdul Samad Inqalabi and Mir Shahid Saleem in their statements and addresses expressed grave concern over the widespread human rights’ violations in the occupied territory.

Paying tributes to the Kashmiri martyrs, they said that the people of Kashmir will continue to offer resistance against India’s illegal occupation of their homeland.

Rights activist Muhammad Ahsan Untoo has said that he will approach international court of justice (ICoJ) for an action if seriously ill Kashmiri detainees were not provided medical treatment.

Meanwhile, an analytical report released by KMS, Tuesday, said that extrajudicial killing of Kashmiri youth has become a regular feature of Indian troops.

It said the killing of three labourers in Shopian fake encounter on July 18 has brought back painful memories of the past.

The report cited a few examples including those of 2000 Pathribal and 2010 Machil massacres and proved that Indian troops were habitual of killing the Kashmiris in fake encounters.

A protest demonstration was held by Muslims, Sikhs and Dalits in Jammu against the abrogation of special status of Jammu and Kashmir, imposition of Hindi language and agenda of hatred promoted by Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government in the occupied territory.

The protest was attended by all prominent leaders of the three communities including Narinder Singh Khalsa.
