Foreign Ministers of Pakistan and India should underscore Kashmir-Farooq Rehmani

September 7, 2012 Leave a comment

Islamabad, 07 September, 2012. The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has urged Pakistan and India to take stock of the unrest in Kashmir caused by draconian laws, tyranny, and threats to the demographic and cultural character of the State. He said India had deprived the people of their basic human rights and democratic rights, in order to crush the 65 year old demand for plebiscite under the united nation’s auspices. The plebiscite as promised by then leadership of India and recognized by the UNCIP in 1949, was delayed and sabotaged by India herself; jeopardizing peace in the region and forcing the inhabitants of Kashmir to articulate their grievances against it. The regime resorted to brute force and suppression of civil liberties. Since then there was anger and turmoil in the peaceful society, and Indian army and police were fomenting the trouble by their continued presence and repressive measures. The plight of the population was unendurable politically and morally. Read more…

Kashmir Tragedy and Responsibilities

Muhammad-Farooq-Rehmani

BY MUHAMMAD FAROOQ REHMANI

 Eyes are tearful, and forlorn
 Kashmir’s plight knows Allah
 Kashmir made a riddle, not to solve
 As, they like bullet and blood
 Who has to gain out of blood?
 Greedy and inhuman of the world
 When Kashmiris will rise, speak
 Make their line of destiny?
 Mothers look for disappeared sons,
 And wolves are hunting youths
 The clock is ticking,
 Killers are trembling
 Oppressed will unite one day,
 And pinpoint masked killers
 The sword may not speak,
 But blood will thunder, and curse the killer

Jammu and Kashmir is not a dispute of land, or water; as is evident from the political struggle of its inhabitants since 1931, and numerous resolutions adopted by the UN on holding of plebiscite here. It is a political and humanitarian question, with its bedrock being the right of self-determination. Regional powers may look concerned about their interests, but the Kashmiris are serious about their destiny as a nation of 13 million inhabitants. When greed for grabbing other nation’s territories and lands surfaces high, small nations are treated as sale commodities; as a result flames of rage and revenge spring up, political rights are subdued and suppressed, and moral values are ignored; and disputes become insoluble between the states. Now a days Kashmir is not a paradise; it’s a slaughter-house since 1990, when the occupying power unleashed its killing machine; and changed the beautiful region into a graveyard for its inhabitants. India gave unbridled and brute powers to its army and police till the innocent people were deprived of their basic human rights. The inhabitants in general and the families of the sympathizers and activists of the political movement in particular, were subjected to loot, arson, molestation, criminal assault, murder and rape by Indian forces and police, during the past 22 years of military operations in the State.
Keeping this in view, the Kashmiris constantly urge the UNO to investigate into the crimes that were committed by Indian army and paratroopers, and continue even today against the innocent people of Kashmir to stifle their voice for freedom and the right of self-determination. Crimes against humanity by India in Kashmir fall under numerous categories and have been perpetrated on men, women and children almost in every village, town, and city of Jammu and Kashmir. It’s also evident from numberless graves and graveyards both marked and unmarked all over the State. India was never questioned, nor brought before the International Court of Justice for her trail of crimes against humanity in Kashmir during the last 22 years. As a result we find every morning being added fresh stories of travail to our sordid and distorted history of life and death. Fathers dumb with grief and mothers crying can’t stop tears from flowing for arrested, brutalized, or forcibly disappeared sons, or near and dear ones. The United Nations Organization should act now against crime perpetrators of the innocent Kashmiris, like Srebrenica and other such regions to encourage and ensure true reconciliation and conflict resolution across this region.

Bandipora made garrison town ─ Farooq Rehmani

July 28, 2012 Leave a comment

Islamabad Jul 28,2012: The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has expressed grave concern over the provocative, aggressive and repressive measures of the army, and paratroopers in the district headquarter of Bandipora, looking not a scenic Wullar-lake city; but of a garrison town, in which thousands of highly equipped Indian army soldiers of the Rashtrayah Rifles (RR) ,the CRPF and police have been garrisoned following the custodial murder of Hilal Ahmad Dar, a local youth by the dreaded R.R. While condemning tyranny and mal treatment of the troops and police with the general public during the last four days, he asked whether such harsh measures would bring real and durable peace in the region.
He said under the given conditions the so called trade and travel CBMs have become futile and redundant, and the rhetoric of talks between the two Governments looks a show of peace.”
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani reminded the OIC Contact Group on Kashmir on their chartered responsibilities, and the UN of their mandatory role as the guarantor and protector of basic human rights and civil and political liberties, calling on them to intervene, as they do in such other situations of historical and humanitarian nature. “Since the forces of repression and occupation are working hand in glove, it becomes obligatory on UN and the OIC to initiate preventive measures for the safety of the kashmiris, lest it may become too late to stop cleansing of the kashmiris in their own State, as India’s so called secular leadership with the help of extremist elements is moving towards that direction’, he added.
At the same time, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani urged the Government of Pakistan to shoulder its political, diplomatic, and moral responsibilities; don’t keep mum on the India’s repression and denial of freedom to the people of the highly neglected conflict- zone of the world. He warned that by being silent on frequent military measures and developments; and intransigence of India in the matter of Kashmir, no one should expect that India’s proxy war along Durand Line will end.
He as well asked the Muslim Governments across the globe to discuss not only the problems of their own destabilizing waves, but sit together and focus upon– take remedial measures against the Muslim genocide moves in India, Palestine, Arakan Under Myanmer, India including Assam, Jammu and Kashmir and other parts and tirade against Islam. The stability of OIC lies in Islamic – solidarity and Islam, not in the continuation of decaying regimes, or borrowed power. Its intrinsic worth will ensure good and honourable relations with other nations of the world, he observed.

Bandipora brutality is part of systematic Killings─Farooq Rehmani

July 26, 2012 Leave a comment

Islamabad 26 July 2012: The Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has strongly condemned a cold-blooded murder of an innocent inhabitant in Aloosa- Bandipora, Kashmir Hilal Ahmad Dar, after the latter’s Taraveeh prayers, sending waves of shock and anger through-out Kashmir valley.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said, “gunning down of innocent citizens in Kashmir has become second nature of India’s occupation forces, as there is no accountability and trial system, no retribution concept in the regime; and that India believes in the power of occupation, presence of army and continuation of draconian laws in the turbulent region; the responsible international bodies like the UN, have for long been apathetic to the plight and the rights of the Kashmiris under the Indian occupation rule. Therefore, India is encouraged to perpetuate its tyrannical rule with impunity and its forces have benefits of corruption and bribery in Jammu and Kashmir.”

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that whatever was happening in the occupied region were only terror, torture, and moral cowardice and bankruptcy of that regime; the pro-India parties were issuing sermons of so called human values and good governance, while actually they were mum at the police brutalities and torture against the citizens. They were not feeling ashamed of their cowardice; not coming to the support of the victimized and targeted people, groaning under the draconian laws of India for long.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani emphasized the proactive and duty-bound role of the UN, OIC, and world human rights organization’s and warned that since India’s designs were very dreadful following her free hand in Afghanistan; anything may happen and frequent acts of state-terrorism could be a prelude to even more ugly developments in this volatile region. He said although the Kashmiris were feeling like orphans in the present regional- behavioral and political developments; they couldn’t be made kneeling-cartoons.
