Geneva, September 10 (KMS): The Executive Director of Kashmir Institute of International Relations, Islamabad, Sardar Amjad Yousaf has said that in occupied Kashmir, people are still facing acute shortage of food items, edible oil, baby products and medicines due to economic blockade of valley by Hindu fanatics.
Addressing the 9th meeting of UN Human Rights Council, he said that Indian troops were targeting peaceful demonstrators in the held valley. He said that recently the troops had fired a peaceful procession in which the APHC senior leader, Shaikh Abdul Aziz got martyred.
Sardar Amjad Yousaf said lakhs of Kashmiri people daily gather to hold protest rallies against India and in favour of liberation, which has proved that the people of Kashmir do not want to live with India.
He also drew attention of the world leaders towards the worst kind of human rights violations in the occupied territory and sought their due role in settlement of the core issue of Kashmir.
He said Kashmiris have rendered matchless sacrifices for achieving their birth right to self-determination and would never compromise their stance, adding that they would continue their liberation struggle till the last drop of blood in their bodies.
He said that struggle of the people of Kashmir would bring fruit and very soon they would get rid of Indian atrocities and would lead their lives in accordance with their aspirations.
