Islamabad, Feb 17: Indian establishment in Kashmir wants to rub salt into the wounds of the Kashmiris and at the same time hoodwink the world by arranging intelligence-guided tours of selected diplomats to the strangulated and besieged Jammu and Kashmir, says Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, Chaiman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League on the present Delhi-designed tour of European Union members.
He said Kashmir as today has been choked and fragmented , where there was no free print or electronic media ; political workers or their relatives were in large numbers in jails, search operations and arrests were a rutless routine practice. Harassment of the inhabitants by police was a common factor. He said a couple of days before some young people without any political activity have been abducted by police in Bandipore and cell phones of their male and female relatives have been seized by them . ”
He said the EU shouldn’t injure its position as a Parliamentary body by toeing Indian concocted stories on Kashmir , rather it should send unbiased delegations , meet the people across board without any shadow of the Indian repressive regime, if it really wanted to know the truth. He asked if every thing was normal in J&K, why there were over 8 hundred thousand strong army men patrolling Kashmir over the heads of unarmed inhabitants throughout the fragmented state. The people of Kashmir insist upon visits of neutral Parliamentary groups, human rights Council, and media teams to know and report plight of the Kashmiris during the last 2 years of Modi-regime’s repression and reject all repressive or cosmetic measures by the Delhi establishment.
