SRINAGAR: Syed Ali Geelani-led Hurriyat Conference on Monday expressed grave concern over the disturbing situation prevailing in the State saying government forces have waged a war against the civil population to suppress their “legitimate and democratic voice” for the right to self-determination.
In a statement, the amalgam’s general secretary G N Sumji condemned the arrest of Hurriyat leaders Gulshan Abbas, Khadim Hussain, Maqbool Maghami and other activists by police in Kupwara, saying “the champions of the so-called democracy are crushing their own rules and regulations to quench their biased thirst”.
He expressed deep anguish and dismay over the use of “brute force” by the Army’s 55-RR against civilians in Arihal, Pulwama, saying that during CASO, dozens of innocent people were ruthlessly beaten and 15 people including imam arrested.
Sumji urged the world human rights organisations to prevail upon India to shun “human rights abuses” in Jammu and Kashmir.
