‘Amnesty Report On Kashmir An Eye Opener’

Srinagar: Huriyat Conference (G) on Thursday termed the Amnesty International’s report on human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir as an eye-opener for world community and India.

“Amnesty while reporting facts about uprising in 2016, has testified our stand that administration has virtually turned state into a police garrison and constitution suspended, a spokesperson of Hurriyat (G) said in a statement issued here. “Under the draconian laws, life and honour of civilians are insecure & forces have made the civilian’s life grim.”

Terming India an autocratic state, he said that India stands exposed by the reports revealed by Amnesty. Its claims for being a great democracy are mere hoax and fraud and in its appeal to UNO and other international forums urged to use their influence and take practical steps to save precious human lives in disputed territory.

Rasheed hails EU for ‘confessing’ that indian institutions have failed kashmiris

Incumbent MLA Langate, Er Rasheed has welcomed the annual report on human rights produced by Amnesty International.

In a statement issued here on Thursday, Rasheed said that Govt of India should not give deaf ear to all the saner voices and added that whatsoever the European Union delegation, has revealed about Human Rights Violations in Kashmir should act as eye opener for New Delhi.

Rasheed said, “The observations made by Amnesty International and European Union are enough to reveal that security forces had committed gross Human Rights Violations in Kashmir and law of the land has gone for a long indefinite leave.”

He said that neither Amnesty international nor European Union has anywhere mentioned that stone pelters were paid taking to streets and the report has exposed India’s crying victim of a conspiracy hatched by Pakistan.”

He said that since European Union has asked Indian institutions to settle the Human Rights violation issues, it amounts to the confession that the institutions of Indian state have miserably failed to do justice with Kashmiris.

He added that the report of Amnesty International has negated Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s issuing No Objection Certificate to security Agencies and if the state Govt. has any moral courage it must punish the state actors who killed unarmed Kashmiri Youth during last six months.

Rasheed appealed Amnesty International, European Union and World Community to move beyond showing concern and use their influence to protect the Human Rights of the people of J&K who are facing the worst sort of “state terrorism” at the hands of forces in every nook and corner.

Amnesty’s Report Trashes India’s Claim Of Being A “Great” Democracy: Dal Khalsa

Dal Khalsa on Thursday hailed Amnesty International report in which the watchdog group has criticized the government for using the “crude, colonial-era” sedition law to silence its critics.

While commenting on the Amnesty International’s report on human rights violations in various parts of India, party’s secretary for human rights Prithpal Singh said it stands an eye-opener for the world powers and the UN that has been maintaining studied silence over the poor record of rights in the country.

Amnesty while reporting facts about uprising in 2016, has stated that the “crude, colonial-era” sedition law was unleashed to silence dissenting voices including government’s critics”.

Dal Khalsa however, expressed surprise that Amnesty has not noticed the incidents of rights abuses in Punjab. In the last few months and especially after the sacrilege incidents, the Akali-BJP government used the simplest preventive detention tool of 107/51 IPC against nearly a hundred plus activists to the archaic charges of sedition against scores of religious and political leaders.

India’s claim for being a great democracy is mere farce and fraud, he said. He said from Punjab to Kashmir, from Tamil Nadu to the North-East, incidents of rights violations are reaching gigantic proportions. He said a common feature of violations in these parts of the country is the flagrant misuse of laws by security forces and the impunity they enjoyed under such laws.

The organization in its appeal to UN and five permanent security council members urged to use their influence and ensure that rights of oppressed people including ethnic minorities and Dalits are restored and respected. (CNS)
