MIRPUR (AJK)-Vehemently condemning the unprecedented human rights abuses in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider said that the continued genocide of innocent civilians in the bleeding valley is unacceptable.

Talking to a delegation in the State capital city on Monday, he decried continuous restrictions as suppressive tactics adopted by Indian forces against Kashmiri people for the past around two-and-half months in the occupied Kashmir.

Haider condemned the imposition of restrictions, declared and undeclared curfew for the 74th continuous day, oppressive and suppressive tactics adopted by the armed forces resulting in grave human rights violations and killings of civilians across Kashmir.

“When forces fired pellets and critically injured a mentally challenged youth, these tactics will not let the people of Jammu Kashmir give up their right of self-determination,” he said.

“We condemn mischievous activities of communal forces in Occupied Kashmir, especially during the Eidul Azha and thereafter, as a consequence of which curfew continues to be imposed there. Such forces are deliberately targeting and harassing Muslims in the region. The brave Muslims of the region have never succumbed to the machinations of these elements and continue to protest against the atrocities perpetrated against them. People of AJK were, are and will always support their fellow Kashmiris in resisting injustice and fighting for their rights,” he further said.

The AJK PM said that bringing Azad Jammu & Kashmir at the path of speedy progress and prosperity would remain the top priority of his PML-N government.

Mr Haider reiterated his determination to make the AJK a developed region where all people could enjoy fruit of progress equally.
