Our continuous struggle and protest is necessary for awakening the sleeping conscience of international community. India and its stooges are trampling the basic human rights of Kashmiris that too under the garb of democracy. On international human rights day, JKLF will hold a thirty (30) hour long protest token hunger strike against human rights abuses in Jammu Kashmir. This hunger strike will start on Wednesday 9th of December 2015 in the morning and will continue till the evening of 10th December 2015 (Insha Allah). This was stated by the chairman JKLF Muhammad Yasin Malik after a meeting of JKLF in this regard. In his statement JKLF chairman said that international community celebrates 10th December as international human rights day every year. This day is celebrated to ensure protection of the human rights of every individual living in this world. He said that from a long time the basic human rights of Kashmris are being trampled by India and its stooges. More than hundred thousand of ours have been martyred by tyrant forces, thousands of our honorable mothers and sisters have been dishonored, thousands are missing in custody and thousands are sleeping in unmarked graves. Thousands have been disabled by torture, pepper gas shells and pellet gun firings and the Careers of thousands are being destroyed in police stations and jails. Mohammad Yasin Malik said that this oppression still continues and if we only analyze the ongoing year we find innocents like Suhail Ahmad Sofi of Narbal, Gowhar Nazir Dar of HMT to Khalid Ahmad Wani of Tral brutally killed by the trigger happy Indian forces. Similarly we find innocent Kashmiris like Zahid Rasool of Baiotangoo burnt to death by fascists backed by the present rulers. He said that during this present year, thousands of innocent young boys, children and students have been arrested, tortured and humiliated by police and forces and till date hundreds of young boys are languishing in police custody or have been sent to jail after slapping PSA on them. Even the kith and kin of these young boys are not spared and are also humiliated and tortured by police. Along with this, a complete blanket ban has been imposed on all peaceful political activities, processions and rallies and practically Kashmir has been turned into a concentration camp. Yasin Malik said that now even our religious belief and freedom is also being snatched and especially in Jammu RSS backed forces with the active support of present rulers has turned the lives of Jammu Muslims as hell. He said that fighting for ones rights is a sign of life and living nations and Kashmiris too being a living nation cannot remain silent on these atrocities. JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik said that whatever is happening in Jammu Kashmir is not unknown. International community knows and understands everything but is keeping criminally silent only because of its trade and economic ties with India. He said that international charter of human rights has been formulated by international community itself. International human rights day is also their creation but today people who made and have signed these covenants are adopting double standards and maintaining criminal silence when it comes to the abuse of human rights of tiny nations like Kashmir. He said that challenging this hypocrisy and double standard of international community and awakening its sleeping conscience is necessary and Kashmiris will keep fulfilling their obligations regarding this. Mohammad Yasin Malik announced that on the eve of international human rights day, JKLF will organize a thirty (30) hour long token hunger strike. The hunger strike will be held from the morning of 9thDecember 2015 to the evening of 10th December 2015 and will be organized at Maqbool Manzil Maisuma Srinagar. Kashmiris through this protest program will register their protest against gross human rights violations in Jammu Kashmir, arrest, torture, oppression, ban on peaceful political activities and continues killing spree in Kashmir by Indian forces.
