India prevents free interaction of people with UN Special Rapporteur–Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad: 28 March, 2012(PR): Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has urged the Kashmiris especially the victims of extrajudicial, summary, and arbitrary executions to articulate their grievances by making the best use of the presence of the UN Special Rapporteur Christ of Heyns in Srinagar. The families of forcibly disappeared Kashmiris in the past 20 years should come out bravely to meet the UN representative helping him to prepare an exhaustive report of atrocities in connection with the monster of state-terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said, “though the authorities and the elements who committed heinous crimes of extra-judicial killings, gang rapes and buried the victims in unmarked graves have had still power to continue the brutalities, are quite capable of lying; but the Kashmiris have burnt their boats therefore they should come forward to divulge untold tales of horror relating to their near and dear ones before the UN Rapporteur.” On the part of the Special Rapporteur, he said, it is the prime responsibility of the UN emissary to go from village to village –to collect every bit of information. He said that India was preventing free interaction between the victims and the UN Special Rapporteur to hide some bitter facts, and was still armed with black laws in the State. He said let the world know the perpetrator of brutalities, whether some individual or an institution.
