Kashmiris are victim of India’s judicial terrorism: Ali Gilani
SRINAGAR: The chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has expressed serious concern over the judicial victimization of Kashmiri political prisoners lodged in jails in and outside the territory, Kashmir Media Service reported.
According to a statement issued, Ali Gilani urged the human rights bodies and International Court of Justice to take a serious note of this unabated judicial terrorism, being faced by Kashmiris in general and pro-freedom people in particular, and put pressure on India to, at least, stop using its judiciary to prolong the Kashmiris’ illegal detention.
“Despite being political prisoners they are denied every right guaranteed in the local or international jail manual. Revengeful attitude of the rulers in Delhi has crossed every limit of heartlessness and insensitivity. They willfully prolong their stay in jails through their judicial victimization,” the statement read.
He said, “Those [Kashmiris] arrested on fictitious charges are yet to be provided the documentary evidence of their crimes, if any.”
Earlier today, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi also asserted that Jammu and Kashmir is the corner stone of Pakistan’s foreign policy and the Kashmir issue needs to be resolved under the UN Security Council’s Resolutions as per aspirations of the people of occupied Kashmir, Radio Pakistan reported.
Talking to a four-member delegation of Kashmir American Council in Islamabad, he said Kashmir dispute is an internationally recognized issue and the Kashmiri diaspora is making commendable efforts to highlight this issue at international fora.
