Srinagar, Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, on Thursday expressed serious concern over increasing human rights violation in the state, saying people pursuing the right to self-determination are facing worst type of ‘state-sponsored terrorism’.
The spokesman said JRL in their appeal to UN General Secretary and international organizations for human rights, urged to take cognizance of rights violations and added that people in the state are worst sufferers.
Pro-freedom leaders ridiculed the statement of Director General Prisons before State Human Rights Commission and said that we with substantial proof can produce sufficient evidence before international human rights organization that detainees caged in state and outside jails are physically tortured and subjected to worst inhuman treatment.The reports pouring in from different jails are horrific, saying that detainees are meted out with inhuman treatment, incarcerated students are not allowed to keep their textbooks, denied medical care, humiliated and intimidated on one pretext or the other, they added.
The international community should take cognizance as the situation in nook and corner of the state is quite appalling and deteriorating with every passing day, said JRL
No rule of law exists in state and while referring to rape and merciless killing of minor 8-year nomadic girl, the JRL said that it vindicates our claim that men in uniform are involved in heinous crimes and under draconian laws enjoy impunity.
Demanding impartial probe by UNO sponsored agency, the JRL said that affected family in Kathua is being harassed and pressurized to withdraw the case against accused and state machinery is being utilized to hush-up the case, added they.
Joint Resistance Leadership strongly condemned the use of brute force against students and said that a situation in educational situations is turning explosive.
Blaming police for manhandling students in Islamabad, Kulgam Shopian, Baramulla, Srinagar, Pulwama and other places, they said that students are our future and we are keeping close vigil over changing development.
