Srinagar: Complete strike is being observed, today, to register protest against the visit of a selected European parliamentary group arranged by the Indian authorities in occupied Kashmir.
Call for the strike has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and supported by all pro-freedom leaders and organizations to remind the international community of its legal and moral responsibilities regarding resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
Al shops and other business establishments are closed while traffic is off the roads in Srinagar and other areas of the Kashmir Valley.
Hurriyat leaders and organizations in their separate statements said the Indian government has conducted these kinds of sponsored visits in the past too but it has miserably failed in its attempts to mislead the international community. They said New Delhi’s false narrative on Jammu and Kashmir finds no takers at international level as the civilized world knows as how brazenly the BJP government has violated the international humanitarian laws by holding millions of Kashmir hostage for the past several months.
They said if the said delegation is really concerned about the subjugated, tormented and oppressed people of the occupied Kashmir it must deny to remain under Indian dictates and volunteer itself to meet the common people, intellectual class, political parties, university and college students to know how brutally they are treated by India.(Agencies)
