Srinagar, November 05, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders have condemned the killing of two civilians by Indian troops in Badgam.

The youth, Faizal Ahmad Butt and Mehraj-u-din Dar were killed and two other persons were injured when Indian troops fired upon a car at Chattergam area, yesterday.

The Hurriyet leaders including Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Farooq Ahmad Dar, Javaid Ahmad Mir, Mohammad Azam Inqilabi, Zamrooda Habib, Yasmeen Raja, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, Tufail Altaf Butt, Hurriyet Conference Jammu and Kashmir, Jamait-e- Islami occupied Kashmir, President of Jamiat Ahlihadees, Professor Ghulam Mohammad Butt, Kashmir Bar Association and chairman of International Chamber for Peace and Conciliation, Professor Nazir Ahmad Shawl in their separate statements termed the killing as cold-blooded murder and appealed world human rights bodies to take notice of continued Indian atrocities in occupied territory.

They said that the freedom sentiment of the people of Kashmir couldn’t be weakened through killings, arrests, detentions and other repressive tactics. They deplored that India had converted occupied Kashmir into a military garrison where its forces under black laws were committing gross human rights violations.

They said that New Delhi wanted to muzzle the voice of Kashmiri people through repressive measures but it would never succeed in its nefarious designs and the ongoing liberation movement would be taken to its logical conclusion. They said that India claimed to be the largest democracy of the world but always violated the democratic rights of the Kashmiri people.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has appealed to the international community and human rights organizations to take notice of the hidden agenda of Delhi in Jammu and Kashmir and prevent Indian troops from committing crimes against the population in the devastated Kashmir region.
