APHC Ridicules Modi’s Statement Over Flood Rescue By Army


SRINAGAR: Ridiculing Indian prime Minister Narinder Modi for his statement that ‘’army saved lives in Kashmir floods’’, APHC called it a brazen lie and said, not a single person was rescued by Indian forces, however they take away a big share of the state budget for helicopter services provided to its army personnel.

Hurriyat said that Indian forces inflicted atrocities to people in state and never treated them as humans. Commenting over the statement of Modi, APHC said that the misleading statement was issued at a time when its forces are thrashing youth and using as human shields. The video clips are uploaded on social, media to create fear psychosis, said Hurriyat.

Hurriyat said that they killed nine youth on April nine to stage election drama and injured as many hundreds. It is a deliberate attempt to cover up war crimes committed by its forces, said Hurriyat, while referring to Mr. Modi’s statement.

Hurriyat said that Indian army during 2014 deluge, rescued and airlifted families of the government forces, tourists and some non-state Hindus, ‘’but they didn’t show any kind of sympathy for the local people and they only dropped some expired biscuit packets among them at few places”. Later they grabbed a hefty amount as service charges from local administration, said Hurriyat

Hurriyat said that stone pelting is resentment for bullet and pelt policy. People are being killed, blinded and maimed, said Hurriyat. Hurriyat in its statement made it clear that Indian authorities through its colonial mindset continue its occupation and their forces are carrying genocide in a well thought design.
