Raids, arrests blatant violations of democratic norms: APHC

Dec 24th, 2014 | Category: Kashmir News

In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference condemning the large scale arrests of youth in and around Maisuma and Lal Chowk areas, nocturnal raids on the residences of pro-freedom leadership and harassment of civilians, has said that brute force is being used to crush peaceful voices raised against these injustices.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar termed these acts by police and paramilitary forces as a blatant violation of democratic and moral principles. He said, the continuous arrest of youth and political activists even after the conclusion of election drama in Kashmir clearly indicates the continuation of oppressive designs of the authorities in the occupied territory.

The spokesman appealed international rights organizations to take strong notice of basic human rights violations in Kashmir and asked them to use their influence to end this Indian policy of aggression and suppression in Kashmir.

Meanwhile, the spokesman offered condolences and expressed sympathies with photojournalist of a Srinagar-based daily, Greater Kashmir, Amaan Farooq, whose father passed away, the other day.
