Srinagar, Jan 5: Paying rich tribute to victims who fall to the bullets of Border Security Forces in Sopore on 6 January 1993, militant outfit Hizbul Mujhadeen Tuesday said after butchering 55 innocent civilians and injuring hundreds in Sopore in 1993, India sent a loud and clear message to International community that it cares a fig for the human rights in Kashmir.
In a statement to CNS, Hizb Chief Syed Salahuddin while addressing a meeting convened in memory of Sopore victims and resolutions adopted by UN on January 5 with regard to right to self determination said that even after the expiry of 22 years victims are still awaiting for justice while international community did not take note of this gruesome massacre. “Indian occupational forces are committing serious war crimes in Jammu & Kashmir, and until the international community takes serious actions in this regard, Kashmiris will continue to suffer at their hands,” he said.
He said that peace will never prevail in subcontinent till Kashmiri’s are not given their right to self determination. “Kashmiri’s will continue their struggle till Indian occupation.”
“We are not against dialogue and we wish Kashmir issue to get resolved as per the aspirations of the people. However, India has been buying time under dialogue mantra and has been strengthening its occupation in Kashmir,” Salahuddin said.
