Human rights day was observed throughout the world on Tuesday 10th December 2013
London 11 December 2013):
Once again seminars and lectures were delivered on this issue, articles appeared in the media highlighting the importance of Human rights year after year, and it is stressed that no one should be denied Basic Human in any circumstances.
In a statement issued from
, Senior Vice President of JKLF London Councillor Mahmood Hussain has said that Western
nations always advocate the importance of Human rights and express their
displeasure against the regimes that violate these rights but they keep quiet
as far as Human rights violations in disputed Jammu Kashmir region are
concerned. The Kashmiri people are not only deprived of their basic human
rights, but are being mercilessly annihilated. The Indian government has
imposed black laws such as AFSPA, PSA etc providing immunity to the soldiers.
The people are killed and shot daily, houses are searched without warrant, in
few incidents some are burnt down with the occupants still inside. UK
Councillor Mahmood Hussain said that State sponsored systemic killing is fully operational in
Kashmir. No wonder Indian Government is reluctant to allow Independent
agencies to monitor abuses being perpetrated by its over 700, 000 troops
stationed in Kashmir. (Most heavily militarised region in the world). The
Only Crime of the poor and defenceless Kashmiris is that they are asking for
their right to exercise the right of self determination.
He further added that it is high time that the people of the world use their voice against this injustice and against the violation of the sanctity of Human Rights.
