Pamphlets about Kashmir situation circulated
Shabir interacts with pilgrims, tourists
SRINAGAR, July 16: Senior Hurriyat Conference leader and president of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah had an interaction with Amarnath yatris and tourists at different places here and briefed them about the latest situation and Kashmir issue.

Shah was accompanied by JKLF (H) chairman Javed Ahmad Mir, chairman Islamic Political Party, Mohammad Yousuf Naqash, chairman International Forum for Justice, Mohammad Ahsan Antoo and secretary general DFP Moulana Mohammad Abdullah Tari.

They also distributed pamphlets in English among the pilgrims and visitors. Shah told them that Kashmiris have been wholeheartedly welcoming the pilgrims and tourists since decades and providing them every required facility irrespective of the situations prevailing in Kashmir. The DFP president said Kashmiris are keen for their visits and expect that they present a real picture about the valley when they return to their homes.

“Over one lakh Kashmiris have been killed and thousands other injured during last 23 years in valley by security forces and police. The number of missing persons in custody is over 8,000. Large number of people have been killed and buried in unmarked graves. Dishonouring of women has been used as a war of weapon and dozens of incidents like that of Kunakposh Pora have occurred,” Shah said.

The DFP president added that security forces are misusing the unlimited powers they enjoy under AFSPA, Public Safety Act and Disturbed Areas Act. Over one lakh Kashmiris have been arrested on one pretext or the other since 1990 and tortured, he alleged.

Shah observed that “Kashmir dispute is the basic cause for the present situation in Kashmir.” The then prime minister Pandit Jawahal Lal Nehru had promised Kashmiris that they will be allowed to decide their political future but the promise was never kept. Government of India needs to keep the promise and solve Kashmir issue through UN resolutions or tripartite talks between India, Pakistan and separatist leadership of Kashmir.

He alleged that New Delhi is trying to keep its occupation going through suppression and had hanged Mohammad Maqbool Bhat and Mohammad Afzal Guru. Their bodies were buried inTihar jail complex and their families not allowed to meet them before their hanging.
