In­dia play­ing dan­ger­ous game in oc­cu­pied Kash­mir HR bod­ies urged to help re­lease Kash­miri de­tainees

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—In oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, the All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence has said that In­dian gov­ern­ment and its pol­i­cy­mak­ers are play­ing a dan­ger­ous game of di­vid­ing the ter­ri­tory on re­li­gious lines to harm the Kash­miris’ on­go­ing free­dom move­ment.

The APHC in a state­ment in Sri­na­gar warned In­dia and its pup­pet ad­min­is­tra­tion in the ter­ri­tory over their plan of set­ting up sep­a­rate colonies for Kash­miri Pan­dits in the Kash­mir Val­ley. It said that the main ob­jec­tive be­hind these colonies was to set­tle the nonKash­miris in the garb of Pan­dits to change the de­mo­graphic com­po­si­tion of the ter­ri­tory. It said, Pan­dits are a vi­tal part of the Kash­miri so­ci­ety and no in­di­vid­ual or group is against their re­turn, but they should set­tle in their na­tive places.

The APHC also de­nounced in strong terms the in­vok­ing of dra­co­nian law, Pub­lic Safety Act, against Hur­riyet lead­ers, Amir Hamza and Nasir Ab­dul­lah, one more time and con­tin­ued il­le­gal de­ten­tion of Masar­rat Aalam Butt, Ha­keem Showkat, Asadul­lah Par­ray, Mer­a­jud­din Nanda, Zubair Ahmed Tur­ray, Muham­mad Yousuf Lone and other lead­ers. It ap­pealed to the world hu­man rights or­ga­ni­za­tions to play their role in the re­lease of all Kash­miri de­tainees.

Hur­riyet lead­ers, Nay­eem Ah­mad Khan and Za­far Akbar Butt, and the Jammu and Kash­mir Lib­er­a­tion Front in their state­ments termed the set­ting up of sep­a­rate set­tle­ments for Pan­dits a con­spir­acy to con­vert the Mus­lim ma­jor­ity into mi­nor­ity.

Mean­while, the APHC Gen­eral Sec­re­tary, Shab­bir Ahmed Shah, went to New Delhi, to­day, for fur­ther treat­ment. He was ad­mit­ted to a hospi­tal in Sri­na­gar on Sun­day af­ter he com­plained of chest pain.

In­dian Army con­tin­ued mas­sive mil­i­tary op­er­a­tion on the third day, to­day, in Lo­lab, Kral­pora, Dard­sun, Rishi­gund, Guzryal, War­sun, Chowk­ibal, Zon­r­ishi and Bud­num­bal ar­eas of Kup­wara district.—KMS
