Nayeem Khan condemns use of force on protesters in IHK

ISLAMABAD: Hurriyet leader and Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir National Front (JKNF) Nayeem Ahmad Khan Saturday condemned the use of brute force by Indian police on peaceful protesters in Khudwani, Kulgam and Pulwama areas, Indian Held Kashmir (IHK).

He said that Jammu Kashmir had virtually been turned into a police state where the men in uniform were being used to suppress the voice of political opponents.

He said, “From Baramulla to Islamabad and from Kulgam, Shopian, Pulwama to Srinagar and Bandipora, the men in uniform were suppressing people by using pellet guns, slapping draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) and using batons against peaceful protesters.”

This all is done on the behest of extremist Hindu organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and other anti-Muslim forces to curb the Kashmir struggle, he added.

Nayeem Khan hailed the statement of the Secretary General of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Iyad Ameen Madani, in which he called for the implementation of the relevant United Nation (UN) resolutions on Kashmir.

“The day is not far when the whole international brethren will raise voice against India and New Delhi will be forced to leave Jammu and Kashmir,” the JKNF Chairman said.

He also condemned the illegal detention of Hurriyet leader, Syed Bashir Ahmad Andrabi.
