UN report testifies our stand: Geelani
Srinagar, July 9: Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Tuesday said the report by United Nations Human Rights Commission on Kashmir has “testified our stand that Indian armed forces under the undemocratic and unethical shield of legal impunity continue the genocide of Kashmiris”.
“Although Indian atrocities and barbarism have crossed all limits, it is for the second time that UN has realized the gravity and severity of this grave and grim situation and recommended for the commission to probe human rights violations,” Geelani said in a statement issued to GNS.
He said if the Indian military onslaught is not stopped, the people of the state will have to face tougher and harsher days ahead.
Commenting on India’s rejection of the report, Geelani said: “It was expected as India has been holding this land by the deceit and denial for the last 71 years, but their “fairy trail rhetoric” can no longer hold water in the age of modern and latest technology where nothing remains hidden from the sharp eyes of the lens, which displays even the minute details of the incident.”
Hurriyat (G) chairman appealed the UN rights body to take serious note of this “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 in the region.
