SRINAGAR: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) on Thursday urged Pakistan to rally the global community to intervene and protect the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) from the threat posed by Indian occupation forces and the anti-Kashmir agendas of the BJP-RSS led regime in India.

In a statement, APHC leadership in Srinagar appealed to peace-loving nations worldwide to urgently address the peril faced by Kashmiri leaders, youth, human rights defenders, journalists, Ulemas, and activists, who are at risk of being terrorized, harassed, and detained on false charges in the territory, according to Kashmir Media Service.

Pakistan a Key Party to Kashmir Dispute

The leadership emphasized Pakistan’s role as a key party to the Kashmir conflict, urging it to take effective measures to spotlight the monstrous threat to the lives of millions in IIOJK.

The statement also called for the release of political detainees, including Hurriyat leaders, and criticized the framing of charges against Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Masarrat Aalam Butt, Farooq Ahmed Dar, Syeda Asiya Andarib, Nayeem Ahmad Khan and others.

The APHC said this as part of the BJP’s strategy to suppress the ongoing political voice and leave it leaderless.
