Demonstrations against HR abuses by Indian troops in IOK

JRL calls for shutdown in poll-bound areas Saturday
In occupied Kashmir, people including Hurriyat leaders, activists and lawyers staged forceful demonstrations in Srinagar and other areas, Friday, in connection with the ongoing Human Rights Week to draw attention of the world community towards the gross human rights violations by Indian troops in the territory.

The Human Rights Week commenced on 3rd of December and will continue till 9th December on the call of Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.

Scores of people including Hurriyat leaders and activists held demonstrations in Nowhatta, Hyderpora, Maisuma, Lal Chowk, and other localities of Srinagar and in Baramulla and Pulwama areas after Friday prayers. The protesters led by Hurriyat leaders chanted high-pitched pro-freedom and anti-India slogans. The protesters also demanded an end to the detention of Syed Ali Gilani and Muhammad Yasin Malik and release of all political prisoners detained in various jails. Indian police used brute force on protesters in Nowhatta and other areas, triggering clashes between the demonstrators and the police personnel.

Earlier, addressing a gathering at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that it was highly condemnable that all the resistance leadership had been caged ahead of the World Human Rights Day, the 10th December, and nocturnal raids were being conducted on activists while candle light vigil too was being disallowed. He urged the United Nations to take note of the ground situation in occupied Kashmir by sending a high level team to the territory.

The members of High Court Bar Association of occupied Kashmir staged a demonstration in the High Court Complex, Srinagar, appealing to the international community to impress upon India to stop its state terrorism in the occupied territory.

Meanwhile, the Joint Resistance Leadership in a statement issued in Srinagar, yesterday, called for complete shutdown in poll-bound areas where polling for the 8th phase of the so-called Panchayat elections will be held on Saturday (today). It urged the people to completely boycott the polling process.
