Islamabad, October 06, 2019 (PPI-OT): Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Moment (DPM), Advocate Parvez Ahmad Shah, has expressed serious concern over the present grim situation in occupied Kashmir. Parvez Ahmad Shah in a statement said that Modi government’s actions of putting the occupied territory under continued siege and caging millions of innocent Kashmiris to crush the political dissent is absolutely inhuman, cruel and warrants not mere condemnations but intervention by the global community.

He said these inhuman measures have created humanitarian crisis in IOK where people are suffering from scarcity of essential needs including food and life saving medicines. The DPM leader reiterated that the people of the occupied territory despite these hardships would continue to resist India’s naked aggression with courage and perseverance.

Condemning the Indian moves to prevent local and international media from covering the situation in IOK, he said that New Delhi had long used such authoritarian measures to obfuscate the crimes committed against Kashmiris by its million-strong forces.

He expressed his deep appreciation to the Pakistani civil and military leadership for their clear and principled stand on Kashmir. Terming the Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s speech at the UNGA very encouraging, he said it has grabbed the attention of world leaders who now sense that if this festering issue is left unattended it will erupt into a full-blown military conflict that could turn into a nuclear war endangering not only the South Asian region but the whole world.

Parvez Ahmad Shah called upon the big powers and global rights bodies to come forward in unison at this crucial juncture to help the besieged people of the occupied territory. He condemned the continued detention of thousands of Kashmiris especially juveniles who are languishing in different detentions centers without trial and access to their family members and lawyers.
