JRL hails UNHRC High Commissioner’s Kashmir remarks
Srinagar September 12, 2018: Joint Resistance Leaders (JRL), Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, while hailing the statement issued by the newly appointed High Commissioner for United Nations Human Rights Commission, Michel Bachelet, termed it a ray of hope for all the destitute people facing the brunt of human rights violations in almost all conflict zones of the world.
Expressing their grave concern on the deteriorating health condition and the inhuman treatment meted out to the prisoners languishing in different jails in and outside Jammu and Kashmir, the JRL, in a statement issued here today, said that prisoners face the wrath of communal frenzy in the jails.
Paying rich tributes to the unwavering commitment and resolve of the incarcerated leaders in Tihar Jail, the JRL said that all these leaders and activists have been victimized on fabricated and fictitious allegations leveled by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Enforce Directorate (ED).
The JRL made a fervent appeal to the United Nations Human Rights Commission and all other human rights organizations of the world to take a serious note of the gross violations of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir.
