‘India is economically strangling Occupied Kashmir’

ISLAMABAD: President of the Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement and senior Hurriyat leader Altaf Ahmad Bhat censured Indian democracy by highlighting the injustice and inhumane actions the Modi fascist government has been carrying upon besieged people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).

While talking to ZMC News live from UK, Bhat said that the pre-planned actions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his aides Amit Shah, Ajit Doval and Indian army chief were to economically strangle the region and people were thrown into a digital black hole. But Kashmiris never surrendered and kept on fighting for the right to self-determination.

“In a bid to weaken the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian government started economic terrorism, and hence the world-famous apples, walnuts and apricots of IOJ&K were destroyed because of Indian state terrorism.”

Shedding light on situations of education, Bhat affirmed that the education system of Kashmir is one of its kind, and it’s better than Indian education system, however, in order to snatch future of Kashmiri children and youth, Indian brutal forces have converted schools, colleges, and universities into army camps with additional forces.

“The students are going through psychological trauma and are unaware of their future.”

Praising the sacrifices and valiance of Kashmiris, he said that Kashmiris have never surrendered and will never surrender to India.

‘India cannot silence Kashmiris by oppression, brutalities’

“The sacrifices of Kashmiri youth, elders, mothers, daughters and children will never go in vain, and Kashmiris will get freedom as per their aspirations and resolutions of the United Nations.”

The president went on to say that Indian occupation troops under the guise of cordon and search operations are deliberately targeting the young Kashmiris by falsely branding them as terrorists.

Appreciating the role of global media, Bhat said that the international media is now exposing the fascist face of India, the brutalities and inhumane torture India is carrying upon Kashmiris is now being exposed by renowned media franchises of the world.

Pertaining to a question from the host, Bhat asserted that Kashmiris have proved that they are a strong and brave nation, they have never surrendered, never accepted any kind of Indian Slavery, and Kashmir freedom movement is getting stronger day-by-day.

Bhat also paid glowing tribute to recently martyred Kashmiris and Kashmiri leaders including Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Zafar Akbar Bhat, Mussarat Alam Butt, Naeem Ahmed Khan, Asiya Andrabi and Yaseen Malik who are under illegal Indian detention.
