ISLAMABAD, Aug 30 (APP): Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan, Ali Amin Gandapur strongly condemned the extra-judicial killing of Kashmiris in “fake encounters” and imposition of restrictions on religious gatherings and processions in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
Armed forces in IIOJK on Saturday used tear gas and fired pellet guns on mourners as they tried to take out Muharram processions in Srinagar.
Modi government’s brutal tactics in the United Nations recognised disputed territory has been exposed to the world, the Minister said in a statement issued here on Sunday. The struggle of the Kashmiris against Indian tyranny is an extension of the battle of Karbala as they have learnt from Karbala to stand firm against oppression. The youth offering the ultimate sacrifice for the Kashmir cause are the real followers of Imam Hussain (AS).
He said the Indian inhuman ways of using the forces to subjugate Kashmiri people through killings, torture, forced disappearances and incarcerations had failed in the past and would not succeed in the future either. The perpetuation of India’s state-terrorism could not break the will of the Kashmiris or quell their efforts to secure their inalienable right to self-determination as enshrined in the relevant United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.
He urged the international community to hold India accountable for its serious crimes against the Kashmiri people.
