The UK based Tehreek-e-Kashmir has welcomed the Amnesty International report condemning draconian laws enforced in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir and urged India to repeal these black laws which curtail the fundamental rights of the people. In a statement, TEK Chief Mohammad Ghalib praised the report recently released by the global human rights watchdog that highlighted the gross violation of human rights in the occupied territory.
“We are indebted to Amnesty International for releasing a report that clearly exposed Indian savage acts of terrorism and gross abuse of the rights of Kashmiri people,” Ghalib said and added that world community should act swiftly to stop human rights violation in Kashmir.
Saying that Amnesty International report clearly supports Kashmir people’s stance with evidence and authority that the Indian armed and paramilitary forces have unbridled powers to catch, killed and put to detention people for indefinite period and without trial, Ghalib appealed the international rights bodies to impress upon India to stop massive human rights abuses in the territory.
He demanded that the personnel of Indian army involved in the war crimes should be trial under international law and the United Nations should send a fact-finding mission to the territory to probe rights violations in Kashmir.
Ghalib further said that the international community should take serious cognizance of grim human rights situation in Kashmir and urged India to allow the UN and representatives of human rights bodies to visit the territory.
Paying glowing tributes to the martyrs of Kashmir freedom struggle, TEK leader said the sacred blood of freedom movement will not go waste and Kashmiris will soon see the dawn of freedom. He also praised the courage and determination of pro-freedom leadership for their relentless struggle.
