Srinagar, June 30, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, APHC leaders including Mukhtar Ahmed Waza and Yasmeen Raja, have paid rich tributes to three youth of Islamabad town, Shujaat-ul-Islam, Ishtiaq Ahmad Khandey and Imtiyaz Ahmad Yatoo, who were killed by Indian police on June 29 during the 2010 uprising. An APHC delegation comprising Mukhtar Waza, Yasmeen Raja, Farooq Tawheede and Fayaz Ahmad Butt visited the town and expressed solidarity with the families of the martyred youth.
Addressing a large gathering at S K Colony Anchidora in Islamabad, Mukhtar Waza said that Kashmiri martyrs had laid down their lives for a sacred cause and their sacrifices would not be allowed to go waste.
He deplored that so far no action had been taken against the killers of the innocent people despite passing of three years. He said that men in uniform involved in the cool-blooded murder of the three youth were roaming freely like several others who were involved in the killing of innocent Kashmiri people.
Mukhtar Waza appealed to the international community to help resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with Kashmiris’ aspirations and the relevant UN resolutions.
Addressing the gathering, Yasmeen Raja, urged the world human rights organizations to take notice of the rights abuses being perpetrated by Indian troops and police personnel in the occupied territory.
