In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian police have booked at least eleven persons including senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Abdul Samad Inqilabi, under draconian law, Public Safety Act, in Bandipora district.  

According to Kashmir Media Service, the detainees have been lodged in different jails of the occupied territory.

Hurriyat leaders while denouncing the fresh arrests deplored that human rights situation is deteriorating with every passing day in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

They said that killings, arbitrary arrests and torture at the hands of Indian occupation troops have become new normal in the territory.

Protest demonstrations were held in parts of Jammu region against the anti-people policies of the authorities.

Residents of various localities shouted high-pitched slogans against the Bharatiya Janata Party for inflicting miseries on the Kashmiri people through flawed policies.

Meanwhile, the US Department of State in its report painted a grim picture of human rights of Muslims in India and occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The State Department in its “2021 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices” noted that Muslims in India are vulnerable to communal violence and discrimination. 

On the other hand, in a statement, the APHC-AJK chapter Convener, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, congratulated Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on behalf of the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir over being elected as new Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
