In a press statement issued to CNS, spokesperson Hizb, Salim Hashmi said that Salahudin while appreciating the role of the family of Farooqi with respect to freedom movement said that the enforced disappearances of more than ten thousands Kashmiri innocent people has exposed the Indian democracy.
“Thousands of unmarked grave are testimony to the fact that these people were killed by Indian Forces through torture but unfortunately, world community failed to impress upon Government of India to stop indulging in human rights violations in Kashmir Valley,” the statement reads.
Accusing India of playing with life of scholar and freedom movement leader Dr Qasim Faktoo, Salahudin said there are apprehensions that Faktoo may lose his eye-sight the way he is being treated. “India will be solely responsible for any harm to Dr Qasim Faktoo’s life,” he said.
He said that India is enacting drama and tarnishing the sanctity of its own Judicial System by releasing and re-arresting Masrat Aalam frequently. He appealed to Human Rights Organization and the leaders of Bar Association to play their role in the cases involving Faktoo and Masrat Aalam. Salahudin reiterated that the freedom struggle would continue till it is not taken to its logical end.
