India using black laws to stifle political dissent in IIOJK

Srinagar, January 09, 2021 (PPI-OT): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, black laws enforced by Modi-led fascist Indian government empower its troops to use force against innocent Kashmiris with impunity to suppress their sentiment for freedom. An analytical report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, said the draconian laws like Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) give Indian troops the license to kill and stifle political dissent in the occupied territory.

The report said that thousands of Kashmiris are presently languishing in Indian prisons under black laws while international rights bodies including Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and Amnesty International have called for release of the detainees and annulment of AFSPA, PSA and other black laws in IIOJK. It urged the global champions of human rights to speak for the Kashmiris’ rights and compel India to restore all their basic human rights.
