AI should persuade India to honour people’s sentiments in Kashmir: JKLF




London (July 23, 2010)
Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front –JKLF- UK Zone has strongly condemned the continued human rights violations in Kashmir by Indian armed personnel especially recent killings of Kashmiri children.

President of JKLF in UK, Mahmood Hussain while writing to Amnesty International (AI) condemned the Indian Governments track record of human rights in Kashmir. He asked AI to persuade India to honour the people’s sentiments in the occupied territory. While blaming India for unrest in Kashmir, he added that it is the result of unjust and forcible occupation of state by Indian forces that thousands of people are on streets asking for justice and freedom. Mr Hussain reminded AI  that  India must not  be allowed to keep  people of Jammu Kashmir in political  servitude   with  an occupation force  of  800,000  military  and paramilitary soldiers.

In the meanwhile, Amnesty International has written back to JKLF Zonal President and explained the steps taken by them regarding the current situation in Kashmir. The AI statement said that “Over the last month, a total of 11 persons, at least eight of them children between 13 and 19 years old, were allegedly killed in shootings by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) paramilitary personnel stationed across the Kashmir valley, as protestors defied curfew regulations, held violent demonstrations and often clashed with the security personnel in Srinagar, Sopore and other towns which were put under curfew. Authorities in India should avoid excessive use of force while dealing with demonstrators in the Kashmir valley”.
