IHK Bar condemns killing of youth by troops in Baramulla

Srinagar, November 24 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Bar Association has strongly condemned the killing of two youth by Indian troops’ unprovoked firing in Baramulla town.

The Bar Secretary General, Ghulam Nabi Shaheen in a statement issued in Srinagar termed the killing as an act of sheer demonstration of Indian state terrorism. He maintained that such tactics could not deter Kashmiris from continuing their struggle for right to self-determination.

Terming the so-called assembly elections in the occupied territory as a futile exercise, Ghulam Nabi Shaheen said that polls couldn’t be substitute of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination. He pointed out that India had been holding farcical polls in occupied Kashmir for the past several decades but could not suppress Kashmiris’ sentiments for freedom.

The Bar Secretary General urged India to adopt realistic approach, give up its intransigence and take steps towards resolving the Kashmir dispute. He also appealed the international community to help stop human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian troops in the occupied territory.
