Srinagar, Dec 06 : On the directions of Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, Hurriyat leaders and activists on Thursday organized a candle light protests at Budgam and Magam respectively, as per the given JRL week long program on the eve of upcoming World Human Rights day (10 December).
“Authorities desperately trying to hide these gross human rights abuses by not even allowing the candle and torch protests and forcibly deprive the brutalized people to register their peaceful protests which are just aimed to invoking the attention on international community about the oppressive tactics unleashed by Indian forces in Kashmir valley,” Hurriyat (G) said in a statement issued to KNS.
“We again reiterated our appeal to international community and all human rights organizations to take a serious note of such brazen Indian aggression on unarmed and defenseless Kashmiris and to make progressive efforts, rather than occasional condemnation, for the resolution of this long standing dispute as promised by the UN through its UNSC resolutions,” the statement added.
Hurriyat leaders said that the forces and police have unleashed yet another arrest spree to sabotage these peaceful protests, and so far hundreds of pro-freedom workers and youth have been arrested and restricted Hurriyat leadership to their houses and jails. (KNS)
