International Human Rights Day; JKLF castigates international community’s silence
Srinagar: The senior vice chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Abdul Hameed Butt while addressing a meeting regarding international human rights day today strongly condemned the prolonged incarceration of ailing JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik.
JKLF senior vice chairman, in a statement issued here today said that India claims to be the biggest democracy of the world but is trampling all the democratic and human rights of the people of Kashmir.
JKLF leader said that JRL had announced a peaceful candlelight protest week to protest human rights abuses but this exemplary peaceful protest was banned by authorities and many JKLF leaders and activists including vice chairman Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi , zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwla, zonal general secretary Sheikh Abdul Rashid along with many others including social activists Shabir Ahmad Dabla and Shakil Ahmad Batkoo have been arrested.
“The ironical part of this mayhem and human catastrophe is that international community is sleeping in deep slumber and despite recent UN report nothing is being done to stop abuse of human rights in Jammu Kashmir,” JKLF senior vice chairman said, appealed international community to rise above its lip servicing.
