Jammu & Kashmir POK - Pakistan Occupied Kashmir

MUZAFFARABAD: Chairman Pasban-e-Hurriyat Uzair Ahmad Ghazali denounced on not bringing the Indian army soldiers to justice involved in Zakoora and Taingpura on 1st March 1990.

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, he said that the Indian army soldiers brutally killed more than 50 innocent civilians in Zakoora and Taingpura areas of Srinagar 33 years before.

He lamented that despite the passage of three decades, those involved in Zakoora and Taingpura massacres have not been brought to justice.

Ghazali said that since 1990, the Indian government and its brutal forces have massacred innocent citizens in Jammu and Kashmir, in which hundreds of Kashmiri citizens were martyred.

“The continuous silence of the countries, organizations and forums claiming human rights around the world on these brutal actions that took place in the occupied state has badly affected the confidence of the Kashmiri people”, he asserted.

He said that the memories of the massacre of Zakoora and Taingpura on March 1, 1990 are still present in minds of the Kashmiri people.

“Dozens of other bloody incidents like Zakoora and Taingpura have exposed the brutal face of the Indian government and its army”, he stated.

Uzair said that the international community, United Nations and human rights organizations should take notice of the genocide of Kashmiris by Indian armed forces for the last 34 years.

He also demanded the United Nations War Crimes Tribunal to take action against the Indian soldiers involved in the massacre of Zakoora Taingpura to justice.

He also paid tribute to the martyrs of Kashmir including Zakoora and Taingpura who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of the state, saying that the blood of martyrs will not go waste and consequently India will return from Jammu and Kashmir unsuccessfully and reluctantly.__Pakistan Today
