Indian troops martyr three Kashmiri youth in Pulwama
ISLAMABAD: Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred three Kashmiri youth in Pulwama district, occupied Jammu and Kashmir, on Monday.
The youth were killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation in Gulshanpora area of Tral in the district.
Meanwhile, people in occupied Kashmir continue to face miseries on the 161st day of military siege and lockdown. Amid shivering cold, the residents complain of acute shortage of daily commodities particularly in the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region.
President of Jammu and Kashmir Council for Human Rights (JKCHR) Dr Syed Nazir Gilani has said the Modi government and Indian army had lost the touch with common sense and history.
In a statement in Islamabad, he said leadership of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not fit into UN template of an intelligent, responsible and spiritual leadership.
Nazir Gilani said, therefore, any misadventure or miscalculation may result into a human catastrophe.
He expressed the hope that ‘prayers for peace’ would prevail, and Indian General would not decide to engage Pakistan and Kashmiris on both sides of cease fire line and across the world in a war of total attrition.
