Srinagar: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir has expressed ‘deep anguish’ over the continuous bloodshed of the Kashmiri people and appealed to the world community to take notice of this sordid situation and exert its influence over the government of India for resolving the human issue according to the wishes of the people of Kashmir, and stop the bloodshed of Kashmiri youth.
“The people of entire Jammu and Kashmir as it existed at the time of Indo-Pak partition have the inherent right to decide their political future. All the three parties to this dispute should sit together and find a final solution to it amicably which may be acceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir being the core party. Any other solution cannot bring stable peace and prosperity to the Indo-Pak sub-continent,” the Jama’at said in a statement.
The Jama’at said that the people of Kashmir are facing worst ever atrocities at the hands of Indian armed forces and so far about lakhs of people got killed, thousands injured and hundreds others disappeared in custody whose whereabouts are still unknown. “Even womenfolk were molested and their chastity violated. Thousands were detained for supporting the just cause of the oppressed people and at present also hundreds of innocent Kashmiri youth along with leaders are languishing in different jails in Jammu and Kashmir and outside in deteriorating conditions. The bloodshed is going on and almost every day the young Kashmiris get killed which amounts to genocide of Kashmiri people,” the statement said.
