JKLF incarcerated and ailing chairman said that Are Kashmiris not humans? Don’t they have same blood, flesh, and emotions? Should not their human rights be respected as of other nations and humans? Why this apathy and double standard with human in Kashmir was being observed and done by the international community.
He said that recently UNHCR did a commendable job by releasing a report on human rights of Kashmiris but it needed a follow up action but seemingly till now only action taken is that by Indians who have expedited their aggression and human rights abuses in Kashmir from last some months. JKLF chairman said that tyranny and oppression cannot put Kashmiri nation into submission and the fact of the matter is that it will yield India nothing but shame.
He said that People of Jammu Kashmir will keep resisting this aggression peacefully and will continue with their struggle till the achievement of the sacred goal.
