ISLAMABAD:

Kashmiri leader Mushaal Mullick on Wednesday said the Indian occupation forces have turned Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) into a “slaughterhouse,” where young Kashmiris and Hurriyat leaders are being “killed and tortured”.

Mushaal, who is the chairperson of the Peace and Culture Organisation, lamented the international community and human rights organisations’ “criminal silence over the world’s worst state terrorism” in the valley.

“It was that unfortunate day when the Indian brutal forces invaded the valley some 74 years ago and started bloodbath of Kashmiri people for demanding their just and internationally admitted right of right to self-determination,” she said in a video message on the Kashmir Black Day that was observed on both sides of the Line of Control and the world.

On October 27 1947, Indian troops had invaded Jammu and Kashmir and occupied it in total violation of the partition plan of the subcontinent and against the Kashmiris’ aspirations.

She was of the view that a large number of public participation in the rallies held in Kashmir, Pakistan and elsewhere in the world speaks volumes about the commitment of Kashmir with their just cause to “break the shackles of Indian slavery.”

Mushaal alleged that Kashmiri people once again exposed Indian PM Narendra Modi’s Hindutva regime before the world whose government used all cruel means to silence the powerful dissenting voices in the valley. “Kashmiris also gave a strong message to the world that despite their apathy towards Kashmiris, they reject India’s illegal occupation of their homeland and will continue their struggle to achieve their inalienable right to self-determination till the last drop of their blood,” she added.

The Indian government has not only denied Kashmiris their birthright but have also committed war crimes, she claimed, adding that the world community and UN bodies “seemed helpless” to implement its own resolutions regarding settlement of Kashmir dispute for the past seven decades.

“The occupation forces have turned the heaven like valley into a hell, as they crossed all limits of barbarity and terrorism in the occupied valley,” Mushaal said.

Mushaal urged the world community to shun the “duplicity” and implement the UNSC resolutions to resolve the Kashmir dispute so as the people could be able to live free life like people elsewhere in the world.
