Sehrai hails British MPs report on ‘human rights violations’ in Kashmir


Srinagar, Nov 01: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Thursday welcomed the report on human rights abuses in Kashmir prepared and presented by a group of British MPs to the UK Parliament.

Welcoming the report prepared by All-Party Parliamentary Kashmir Group (APPKG), Sehrai in a statement issued on Thursday said that the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OCHR) report revealed large scale human rights violations in Kashmir.


“The detailed report by APPKG reflects grim situation of Kashmir,” Sehrai said.
He said that the unprecedented use of violence against the unarmed and innocent Kashmiris was a daily affair.

“So we appeal international community UN, UNSC, European Parliament, OCHR, and every human rights organisation to do more than occasional verbal condemnation and go beyond such Human rights violation Report submissions in order to restore your own reduced credibility,” Sehrai said.

He said that the UN and other International watch dogs have a moral obligation to the people of Kashmir as the promise of holding plebiscite in Kashmir has not been fulfilled till now.

Meanwhile, Sehrai expressed concern over the missing of a Kashmiri student Ahteshaam from Khanyaar Srinagar in Delhi saying students even outside Jammu and Kashmir were not safe, and expressed serious concern and apprehensions over the mysterious missing of the said student.
