General shutdown announced on Modi’s visit to occupied Kashmir

APHC calls upon international community to take notice of Indian atrocities in occupied territory.

SRINAGAR: The All Parties Hurriyet Conference has announced a general shutdown in occupied Kashmir on the eve of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the disputed territory on Thursday.

Under the pretext of security, restrictions have been imposed across the occupied territory by occupying forces who are harassing people at their homes and outside. Roadblocks have been erected and surveillance systems installed, causing inconvenience to residents.

The APHC said in a statement that the people of Kashmir would protest against the visit of Modi to their area by keeping all businesses shut and holding demonstrations. 

It asked the international human rights organizations to take notice of the human rights violations in occupied Kashmir at the hands of the occupying forces. 

It added that Kashmir was the oldest dispute on the agenda of the United Nations and the international community was duty bound to ensure the Kashmiris’ right to Self-determination as promised in United Nations Security Council resolutions.

The leaders of the APHC pointed out that unless the issue of Kashmir is resolved in accordance with the resolutions of the UNSC, India should be barred from considering the territory as its part.

But the international community did not take any serious notice when New Delhi unilaterally changed the special status of occupied Kashmir on Aug 5, 2019, in order to perpetuate its occupation.

But the people of Kashmir will never accept Indian subjugation of their land and would continue their freedom struggle till they got their basic right to Self-determination.
