The GPKSC chief further lambasted the world community including the concerned global forums for ignoring the cries of our daughters, sisters and mothers who were also being tortured, molested, raped besides using them as weapon of war to humiliate them by the despotic Indian occupational troops in the occupied Kashmir valley, which has been turned into world’s largest prison since the bleak day of August 05, last year by brutal India, he underlined.

Despite all coercive methods, India could not weak Kashmiris strength, & courage as the valiant sons of the soil were always prepared to give supreme sacrifices of their lives one after the others for the sake of liberation of their homeland from Indian manacles in all circumstances and determined to continue the struggle till the last drop of the blood of the last Kashmiri, he added.

Concluding, Sikander said that now it was the most worst time for them ever since the black day of 13th July 1931 following India’s continual sinister act of the abrogation of article 370 & 35A to scrap the internationally-acknowledged disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir and the aftermath of this unilateral unlawful action – in form of imposition of ndefinite curfew & lockdown in place since 5th August last year across the occupied valley, he underlined.
