During the meeting the leaders strongly condemned the atrocities committed against people throughout the Kashmir,” the JRL spokesman said.
They said the innocent people are detained on frivolous charges and are detained in different jails while as youth are being pushed to the wall, adding, such undemocratic and inhuman situation can’t be tolerated for long.
The leaders expressed concern over the ill-treatment meted out to political prisoners lodged in jails in and outside the Kashmir Valley.
They said the detainees are subjected to the worst form of harassment in the jails, adding, that entire nation stands with them and they deserve all applauds for their courage.
“Terming the present political situation in Kashmir as worrisome, the leaders said that the complete silence adopted by the World Community is lending a helping hand to the Dehli and their stooges to commit more Human Rights Violations in Kashmir.”
The leaders said that military might or using iron fist policy can never solve the Kashmir problem rather cause more destruction of life and property. The meeting observed that to secure the future of billions of people of South Asia there is a high need to take concrete steps to resolve the vexed Kashmir issue.
