India once again displayed brutal use of state force in Indian occupied Kashmir. Indian occupied forces using every lethal weapon and dirty tactics to repress and terrorise the people of Kashmir. The Indian occupant forces have so far been martyred 11 Kashmiri youths and injured more than 80 in a brutal use of state force against unarmed and innocent young people. This state brutality took place in Pulwama district of occupied Kashmir. The Indian forces launched cordon and search operation in the area in which three young people were martyred.
The killing of youth sparked protests by local people resulting in clashes between the protestors and the Indian occupation forces. The Indian troops fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters which led to martyrdom of eight more youths. The Indian occupation forces once again unleashed reign of terror against protesting young people.
In an attempt to stop the spread of protests to different districts and areas of Kashmir, the authorities have suspended train service and shut down mobile internet services. Many people facing problems to shift the injured people to hospitals in Srinagar for specialised treatment. “The forces unleashed hell in our village,” said a person accompanying an injured protester at the Srinagar’s SMHS hospital. At the hospital, tempers flared and people raised slogans as injured were being taken for treatment. By afternoon, 11 fresh graves were dug up in different parts of Pulwama.
Dr. Muhammad Faisal, the spokesman of Pakistani foreign office strongly condemned this brutal and barbaric use of use. He said on twitter “The Indian firing also left another 200 people injured.” He said from blinding 18-month-old baby Hiba to murdering 14-year-old Kashmiri boys, India has made a mockery of human rights in the Held Kashmir.Pakistan strongly condemned the abhorrent and ruthless killings of innocent Kashmiri youths, including the father of a three-month baby, by direct Indian firing.
He said the establishment of a commission of inquiry as recommended by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights was imperative for bringing an immediate halt to the Indian state-sponsored terrorism and human right abuses in the IHK.
The Hurriyat leaders opposed to the Indian occupation of Kashmir called for a three-day general strike to protest Saturday’s killings. They also announced a march on Monday, Dec 17 to the military headquarters in Srinagar.
The Modi government in Delhi has consciously adopted the policy of genocide in Kashmir. The Indian occupied forces have been given free hand to kill as many as Kashmiris to silent the dissent and rebellion against Indian occupation. India is doing exactly what Israel did in Palestine to repress them. India feels no pressure from international community and big powers to stop continued violations of human rights. Indian forces are committing crimes against humanity and war crimes. The silence of big powers and international community has been encouraging the India to continue killing and injuring innocent people in Kashmir.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, a senior leader of the unified Joint Resistance Leadership group, took to twitter to vent anger at the government action, saying “Indian forces should kill all of us at one time rather than killing us daily”.
