Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir National Front on Thursday welcomed the statement of new UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet criticising the Government of India for not heeding its report on Kashmir.
“The sacrifices offered by people of Kashmir have started bearing fruits as world bodies like UNHRC have started showing concern about the grave situation in the valley,” said deputy chairman of National Front, Altaf Hussain Wani, in a statement.
Hussain expressed concern over the continuous human rights violations in the valley, and said that Kashmir has become hub of rights abuses “because forces are enjoying black laws like Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA)”.
He appealed the world forums to intervene in HR violations in J&K.
