It is for the second time that UN has realized the gravity and severity of this grave and grim situation and recommended for the commission, to probe human rights violations.

He said that this world body has testified our stand that Indian armed forces under the undemocratic and unethical shield of legal impunity continue the genocide of Kashmiries, with bullets, pellets, torture, rape, humiliation and incarceration.

Hurriyat chairman has further said that if this military onslaught is not stopped, people of the state will have to face tougher and harsher days ahead.

Commenting on the India’s rejection of the report he said that it was expected as India has been holding this land by the deceit and denial for the last 71 years, but there “fairy trail rhetoric” can no longer hold water in the age of modern and latest technology where nothing remains hidden from the sharp eyes of the lens, which displays even the minute details of the incident.

Hurriyat chairman appealed UN rights body to take serious note of this brazen denial of facts and pressurize India to abide by the universal obligations and fulfill long pending UN resolution on Jammu and Kashmir to pave way for permanent peace and prosperity in the region. (PTK)
