All Parties Hurriyat Conference has called upon the authorities to return the body of Amir Ahmad Magray, a resident of Gool- the third civilian killed in Hyderpora ‘staged gunfight’ without delay.
In a statement issued here, APHC asked the authorities to desist from the ‘criminal’ practice of ceasing bodies and denying their families the right to a proper burial. It is abhorrently inhuman, reads the communique while calling on the authorities to stop the wanton violence in Kashmir.
“APHC reiterates its call for resolution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Will and aspiration of its people, as the only way to bring peace in the region.” The statement further reads.
APHC also extended greetings to the Sikh brethren on the occasion of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birth anniversary, “It regrets that the appeal for deferring the strike could not be deferred as requested by our Sikh brethren due to the severity of events felt by all people of Kashmir. It is unfortunate that for all communities, the joy of celebratory occasions is lost in midst of human tragedies.” The statement added.
APHC called upon people to continue to speak against injustices and violence in Kashmir. “Despite arrests, house detentions and severe curbs on leadership and political activists , they stand firmly with the people and the political struggle.”
The resistance group also acknowledged the continued ‘censorship’ of its statements and campaigns in the local media. It understands the pressures and threats under which they are working and is in complete solidarity with the community.
