SRINAGAR: Muslim Conference chairman Shabir Ahmed Dar Sunday said that Kashmiri people were fighting “foreign occupation for last seven decades.”
“People are being subjected to worst kind of human sufferings at the hands of Indian forces which are hell bent to subjugate Kashmiris,” Dar said in a statement.
He accused India of “using its seven lakh soldiers to extend unlawful, unconstitutional and forced occupation.”
“Indian terror tactics has miserably failed in Kashmir as the conviction of Kashmiris is getting more and more stronger that freedom is the only choice,” Dar said, adding “India must understand that she cannot defeat Kashmir’s freedom struggle in the wake of international support for Kashmir resolution.”
Dar said that history stands testimony to the fact that when people are ready for sacrifices to take their mission forward, no power can force them to submission.
“India should also understand that Kashmiris are destined to get freedom, so measures should be taken to end hostilities and start a process which will ensure peaceful settlement of the contentious issues like Kashmir,” Dar added.
He said that New Delhi was using “arm twisting methods to suppress Kashmiris and keep them away from fighting against its forced occupation.”
“From Pathribal to Kupwara India has to answer for every innocent killing,” Dar said, while appealing United Nations to constitute an inquiry commission “to probe all these fake encounters where innocents were killed and then dubbed as militants to justify the crimes.”
