The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Mirwaiz, has urged the people to continue protests against abduction and gang rape of a woman by Indian troops at Damhal Hanjipora in Kulgam till the culprits are brought to justice.

The APHC Chairman in a statement issued in Srinagar condemning the incident said that such inhuman crimes were perpetrated by the troops under a well thought-out plan to offend the sentiments of Kashmiri people and pressurize them to abandon their liberation struggle.

The Mirwaiz called upon international and Indian organizations working for protection of human rights to break their silence and fulfil their responsibilities to ensure an immediate halt to human rights abuses and crimes against women in the occupied territory. “They should also play their role in the revocation of all black laws and get all the cases of rape investigated and guilty punished,” he added.

He said that the APHC would convene a meeting on Monday before meeting the Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Hina Rabani Khar, in New Delhi. “Our focus would be that Pakistan should talk about demilitarization and repealing of black laws in Jammu and Kashmir. It is because of these laws and the huge presence of Indian army, police and military that human rights violations are going on uninterrupted,” he said.

The Mirwaiz said that the confidence building measures rather than announcing trade and bus services should focus on much pressing issues like repealing of black laws and demilitarization to bring relief to the people of Kashmir.

Meanwhile, the APHC has strongly condemned the continued house arrest of its leaders including Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Zafar Akbar Butt and Shahid-ul-Islam.
