Condemn killings and implement 13 Aug 1948/5 Jan 1949 resolutions – Muhammad Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad, 16 Aug, 2010: Muhammad Farooq Rehmani Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League has said hardly within a week after the peace rhetoric of Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to the people of Kashmir, India’s paratroopers gunned down at least eight young and old Kashmiris in Threhgam and other parts of Kashmir, raising the toll of innocent civilian deaths since 11 June to at least 60 young and old men. He lauded the role of young Kashmiris for demonstrating their exemplary determination again on 15 August by making the day a complete failure in Jammu and Kashmir.
While condemning in strongest words Indian force’s continuous brutal killings in Kashmir, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that every act exposed Indian Prime minister’s claim of sincerity and capability to make peace with the people of Jammu and Kashmir. In fact Practical experience always belied Indian PM’s words. He said that Indian regime in Kashmir would be remembered as the worst ever in Kashmir’s history. He regretted that while there was going on a naked dance of death in Kashmir the world powers looked mum. He urged the UN Secretary General Banki Moon to take cognizance of civilian killings by Indian forces in Kashmir under the relevant Security Council resolutions and international humanitarian law to restrain Indian forces from perpetuating genocide in Jammu and Kashmir.
Reminding the world body of its commitments regarding the right of self-determination, he said that if this principle was good for East Timor or Kosovo or any other nation why not for the Kashmiris. Emphasizing the need for peace and justice he said that the UN should compel India to repeal all black laws in Kashmir, withdraw its troops from the state and give the people of Kashmir an opportunity to decide their future peacefully through a UN sponsored plebiscite as envisaged in the UNCIP resolutions of 13 Aug 1948 and 5 Jan 1949.
