All Parties Hurriyat Conference (m) in a statement on Saturday said that the large scale “atrocities” by state forces which enjoy impunity and immunity “continue unabated and uninterrupted”.

Strongly condemning the “murder” of 22-year-old Waseem Ahmed Lone of Baramulla while he was harvesting in his fields “by the Indian forces”, the APHC-m statement said, “we deeply mourn the tremendous and irreparable loss of precious human lives that Kashmir has lost and offer our condolences to the families that have lost their dear ones and pray that Almighty Allah give them sabr and fortitude to bear this pain. Kashmir stands with them; their sorrow is shared by all.”

The statement said that in  the past 77 days, 89 people have been killed, thousands injured and maimed, more than 600 children and teenagers partially or completely blinded, entire leadership either jailed or caged at homes, rights activists, lawyers teachers and thousands of youth arbitrarily and illegally arrested and sent to jails outside the state, raids  conducted, people beaten up harassed and humiliated on a daily basis, curfews and curbs , communication and media gags arbitrarily  imposed. “Loss of assets and livelihood cannot even be calculated.”

“At this juncture as the killings continue, we once again appeal to those who claim to be the elected representatives of the people. Overcome your moral turpitude and show decency. As the Indian state sends more and more forces in civilian areas to crush us, it is time for you to self-reflect and audit yourselves,” the Hurriyat Conference said.

“The present and future of the people of Kashmir is at stake. Each person, each child who is  killed and maimed in Kashmir is your collective responsibility- you have been governing the people, ruling over them, enjoying fruits of power. Take responsibility for your actions, which lead to blood-baths. Show compassion and give back something to your people. History will judge you again and again and will hold you guilty for facilitating unprecedented brutality on your own people,” the statement said.

“Use your influence with the Indian state and civil society and persuade them to immediately put an end to the brutality unleashed on us and seriously work towards a political solution; a solution which respects the will and aspirations of the people. You have to make it clear to the Indian state that the people of Kashmir cannot be crushed by force and cannot be forced to surrender their struggle for justice and Right to Self Determination. If you fail to influence the Indian State then it becomes incumbent upon you to resign immediately and render the state institutions, which have been thrust on us-redundant,” the Hurriyat Conference told the pro-Indian politicians.

“Mr Tariq Karra has taken a lead in this and shown the way. Mr Omar Abdullah has been showing concern and is giving statements about the imperatives of a political solution and the failure and loss of credibility of state institutions in this regard. If he is sincere in what he is saying and genuinely believed he represents people then he has a responsibility to make Indian Government stop its obduracy and Initiate a genuine political process,” the statement added.

“If his attempts prove futile, Mr Abdullah should take a firm position and resign and in doing so open a new vista for those in power to follow,” it said.

“As far as Hurriyat (Conference) is concerned it is clear we have no traction with any power. Hurriyat Conference represents the will and aspirations of the oppressed people of Kashmir. Our strength and resource lies in the faith and justness of our cause,” the statement said.
