Senior vice chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Abdul Hamid Butt has called for a united protest against Indian atrocities and state sponsored terrorism against the people of Jammu Kashmir, during upcoming visit of Indian prime minister to United Kingdom on 18th April 2018.
Abdul Hamid Butt who has a distinction of being a close companion of father of Kashmiri nation Muhammad Maqbool Butt and close associate of late leader Aman-Ullah Khan, appealed Kashmiris living in United Kingdom(UK) to join hands and protest against ongoing oppression in Indian held Kashmir unleashed by occupational forces.
According to the statement, he said that at the eve of meeting between Indian premier Nerander Modi and his counterpart the prime minister of UK, Kashmiris living in UK should with one voice, protest against ongoing military oppression of India unleashed against the people of Indian held Kashmir.
He said that all Kashmiris rising above their party affiliations, ideological differences, personal grudges and petty differences should join hands together and protest with one voice against gross human rights violations by India in Jammu Kashmir.
JKLF leader said that India has declared a war on the people of Kashmir and Kashmiris youth are being targeted with bullets and pellets. More than 30 young boys have fallen to the bullets of India during last one month and hundreds have been critically injured. Besides this, whole Kashmiri resistance leadership has been time and again incarcerated along with thousands of youth. Moreover we have seen an innocent girl Asifa from Kuthua being raped and killed by chauvinists and instead of providing her justice, BJP leaders and activists taking out protests in favor of her rapists and killers, the statement added.
He said all this is making situation in Jammu Kashmir more volatile and is putting responsibility on our shoulders to remain united and protest against it.
He said that situation demands that all Kashmiris working on diplomatic front should rise above their party and ideological affiliations and stay firm at the back of the oppressed brothers and sisters of Indian held Kashmir and enhance efforts to take forward our case before the international community.
