Not Allowing the Documentary Screening Reflects the Frustration of Authorities: Hurriyat (m)


All Parties Hurriyat Conference (m) Wednesday took strong exception to the government’s decision to stop the scheduled release and screening of the documentary “Children in Conflict Torn Kashmir” made by the Human Rights Division of the conglomerate.

An APHC-m spokesperson said the documentary based on “human rights violations” inflicted on children in Kashmir was scheduled to be released and screened Wednesday at Hotel Grand Mumtaz Towers but the authorities did not allow the event.

The spokesperson said the government has “violated” basic human rights in Kashmir and “choked” the freedom of expression of people in the valley through the use of “brutal force and suppressive methods”.

He said, “The oppression against the people of Kashmir, whether human rights violations or curbs on political, social or religious rights and crimes against women and children continue in Kashmir. Highlighting these was the moral responsibility of the conglomerate and raising voice against this oppression and suppression would continue despite curbs.”

The spokesperson said the government’s decision to stop the release and screening of documentary “Children in Conflict Torn Kashmir” was completely undemocratic and reflects the frustration of the authorities.

He said this type of aggressive attitude would not deter or stop APHC-m from raising its voice against the “Human Rights Violations” and “atrocities” committed on the people of Kashmir.
