UN has finally realized the gravity of Kashmir situation: Geelani
Srinagar June 15, 2018: Hailing the recent report on gross human rights violations by Indian forces, issued by United Nations Human Rights Division, All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman, Syed Ali Geelani has said that although Indian ‘atrocities and barbarism’ have crossed all the limits and were continuing unabated for the last 70 years, it was for the first time that UN had realized the gravity and severity of this grave and grim situation.
In a press release issued here, Geelani said that this world body had testified our (Hurriyat’s) stand that Indian armed forces under the undemocratic and unethical shield of legal impunity continue the genocide of Kashmir, with bullets, pellets, torture, rape and humiliation.
Hurriyat chairman, in the press release, further said that if the ‘iron fist and military might of India is not stopped, people of the state will have to face tougher and harsher days ahead’.
Syed Ali Geelani said that, rejecting the report by India is nothing but arrogance of power and military might stating that in the age of modern and latest technology nothing remains hidden for the sharp eyes of the lense, which displays even the minute details of the incident.
“We are not surprised by the Indian rejection as they have been in denial mode for the last 7 decades, but world recognizes the ground realities and day to day atrocities in this land and Indian denial carries no weight,” Geelani was quoted as saying.
Hurriyat chairman also appealed UN rights body to take serious note of the ‘brazen denial of facts’ and pressurize India to abide by the universal obligations and fulfill long pending UN resolution on Jammu and Kashmir to pave way for permanent peace and prosperity.
