Mushaal challenges the world’s silence on Indian state terrorism in the IIOJK – Kashmir Media Service

Islamabad, Oct 25 (KMS): Peace and Culture Organization (PCO) Chairman Mushaal Hussein Mullick says the people of illegally Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) have braved the weight of the brutal Indian army over the last more than 75 years.

Mushaal Mullick, who is the wife of illegally detained Hurriyat leader, Muhammad Yasin Malik, was speaking at a Kashmir Parliamentary Committee meeting in Islamabad today. She said Kashmiris are being brutally victimized, harassed, tortured and killed by a million Indian military and paramilitaries deployed across the length and breadth of the IIOJK.

The CCP Chairman has raised the question of how long the world will watch in silence as India carries out the genocide of the Kashmiri people. She said it would be a travesty of justice from the international community to leave the unfortunate Kashmiris at the mercy of India’s ruthless and belligerent occupation.

Mushaal said dozens of senior Hurriyat leaders and young Kashmiris have been tortured to death in detention for their sole crime of speaking out to liberate Kashmir from Indian rule. She said Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik was being held in a death cell, fearing he had been tortured to death, efforts should be made to secure his speedy release from unlawful detention.

Chief Hurriyat lamented that the fascist Indian Hindu government led by Narendra Modi was working on a nefarious plan to further marginalize the Muslim population of the IIOJK through imperialist policies such as land grabbing, extermination of inhabitants, forced evictions, endemic aggression, arbitrary arrests, extra-judicial executions, enforced disappearances and systematic genocide of Kashmiri youth in fake encounters.

Mushaal argued that the brutal personnel of Indian forces cannot dampen the courage of brave Kashmiris who have written a new history of resistance that will continue to inspire those who believe in freedom, justice and equality. She demanded that the international community take decisive action for the granting of the right to self-determination to Kashmiris in the light of UN resolutions and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
