Kashmir needs direct UN focus—Muhammad Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad, 29 Jun, 2010: Muhammad Farooq Rehmani Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League has expressed great concern over the stepped up police atrocities and use of indiscriminate brute force against common demonstrators in Jammu and Kashmir. Condemning in very strong words killing of youth in the northern area of Kashmir, crack down on peaceful political demonstrators, undeclared curfew in parts of the state and large scale arrests of Hurriyat leaders and workers in Srinagar, he said that it gave the impression that the United Nations and its Council for Human Rights did not bother to keep abreast of the burning situation in Jammu and Kashmir, where people were being treated like sheep and goats. He said that the threat to life of people was increasing day by day, so it was the duty of the world body to call an emergency session of the General Assembly, make India answerable before it and force her to abolish inhuman laws in the region and follow the International Human Rights Law in Kashmir. He warned otherwise India would not extinguish the current flames in the region and no bilateral talk or the so called peace diplomacy would bail out India in Kashmir.
