Report sheds light on Indian State terrorism in IIOJK

Wednesday – November 25, 2020
SRINAGAR (India): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), Indian State terrorism continues to take heavy toll on Kashmiris for the past over seven decades, an analytical report released by Kashmir Media Service (KMS), Tuesday, said Indian forces are involved in worst form of State terrorism in IIOJK.

According to KMS, New Delhi has intensified its oppression since August 5, 2019, in IIOJK. It said that 256 Kashmiris killed since Aug 5, last year to October 31, 2020, in the occupied territory.

95,709 Kashmiris murdered by Indian troops from January 1989 when the present phase of freedom struggle started in the occupied territory to October 31, 2020.

The Indian prime minister (PM) Narendra Modi led fascist Indian government has taken number of brutal steps including abrogation of article 370 and introduction of land and domiciles laws during the past one year to carry forward its Hindutva agenda in IIOJK.

However, the report maintained that India’s efforts to subjugate the Kashmiri people through killings, torture, enforced disappearances and incarcerations will not succeed.

What India is doing in Kashmir particularly after August last year has exposed New Delhi’s grisly face before the international community, and the world has started warning that the ongoing Indian State terrorism in IIOJK is a threat to peace both at regional as well as international levels, the report added.

It urged the world to rise above mere warnings and take a strong action against India for its crimes against humanity in IIOJK.

Separately, in IIOJK, the realisation of fighting a futile war against an entire population of the disputed territory has landed Indian forces’ personnel posted in IIOJK in a morale crisis.

A report released by Srinagar-based research section of KMS, Tuesday, said that the phenomenon of committing suicide among the troops shows an upward trend with 38 soldiers taking their life, this year so far, in IIOJK as against 16 in 2019.

As many as 481 Indian troops have committed suicide in the occupied territory since January 2007. The report citing defence analysts said that frustrated Indian army cannot fight valiant Kashmiris, and the characterless Indian army is no match for resilient Kashmiri people.

Meanwhile, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir (TeH-JK) in a statement issued in Srinagar said, Indian State terrorism continues to take heavy toll on Kashmiris for the past over seven decades, particularly after the launch of present phase of robust freedom struggle in the occupied territory in 1989.

It said that New Delhi had intensified its oppression against innocent Kashmiris since August 5, last year when fascist Modi-led Indian government revoked Kashmir’s special status.

In addition to killing 256 people, India took number of brutal steps including introduction of land and domiciles laws to carry forward its Hindutva agenda in the occupied territory.

Posters have appeared at several districts in IIOJK, persuading people not to participate in the so-called upcoming district development council elections which are aimed at hoodwinking the world and furthering the occupation of the territory.

The posters read that India was hell bent on eradicating the identity of Kashmiris through different malicious tactics and continuing with the struggle for freedom was the only way to thwart New Delhi’s designs.

Rights activist, Mohammad Ahsan Untoo, in a statement issued in Srinagar urged the international human rights’ groups to impress upon India to release illegally detained Kashmiri women leaders and activists Aasiya Andrabi, Fahmeeda Sofi, Naheeda Nasreen and others from Indian jails.

Jammu and Kashmir Ittehad-e-Islami (JK-IeI) during a meeting in Kishtwar said that Gujjar and Bakarwal communities are being dislodged from their land and houses in several areas of Jammu region to pave the way for settlement of Hindu outsiders from India. The meeting was presided over by party leader, Maulana Nisar Ahmad.

The wife of senior Hurriyat leader, Maulana Abbas Ansari, passed away in Srinagar, Tuesday. Hurriyat leaders and organisations in their statements expressed grief over the sad demise of the wife of Maulana Abbas Ansari.
