Hizb appeals rights groups to take note of ‘violations’

Srinagar: Hizbul Mujahideen has condemned the killing of a youth by CRPF troopers at Nawa Kadal and “repressive measures” including arrests, preventive detentions, harassment, using tear smoke shells, aerial firing and firing on protesters used by the authorities to conduct polling in Kashmir.
In a statement, Hizb spokesman Salim Hashmi said, “We appeal all international human rights organizations to take cognizance of the worst human rights situation and expose all those responsible for these brazen rights abuses in Kashmir. The world community and human rights bodies should take notice of the rights abuse and agitate against Indian repression in Jammu and Kashmir.”
The Hizb also condemned the Sangrama firing incident in which four persons including former spokesman of the outfit Abdul Khaliq Dar alias Junaid-ul-Islam was injured.
“We think that such incidents won’t impede Kashmir movement and instead the same would boost it further. The Kashmir movement would continue till its logical conclusion,” the Hizb said
