SRINAGAR: Separatist leaders Thursday castigated the undemocratic and fascist tactics of occupation authorities of India and its local administration for choking the voice of dissent and putting curbs on indoor meetings.
In a joint statement to CNS, they alleged political space is being virtually denied to them.
These tactics amount to brazen violation of international covenants including universal declaration of human rights and international bill of rights to which India is signatory, they said.
