Srinagar, November 09, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Hurriyet Conference Jammu and Kashmir (HCJK) leader and Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Chairman, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, terming as misleading the Indian Army General’s statement on the Chattergam incident, has said that the brutal killing of two teenage boys was not a mistaken identity but a deliberate act.
Shabbir Ahmad Shah, who continues to be in illegal detention, while reacting to the Army’s assertions in a statement issued by the HCJK spokesman in Srinagar, said that the black laws had given unbridled powers to the Indian forces paving way for them to commit heinous crimes like Chattergam killings.
He termed the army’s statement as confession of murder, demanding they should confess to the killings they carried out in Kashmir for the past 24 years.
“They should also reveal who are buried in unmarked graves and where all the 10,000 disappeared persons are,” Shah said. He appealed to the international community and the United Nations to take serious notice of grave human rights violations committed by the armed forces and hold New Delhi accountable for all the crimes committed in Kashmir.
Shabbir Ahmad Shah reiterated his appeal for election boycott saying said that the people, who consider AFSPA as “a divine commandment and are strengthening the New Delhi’s forcible control Jammu Kashmir, are now begging for votes.”
Welcoming the statement of OIC, Shah said the Muslim world should now take serious initiatives to resolve this long pending dispute of Kashmir to ensure durable peace in the region.
