Apartheid India has no right to call itself a republic: Mushaal


Mushaal Hussein Mullick wife of Jailed Kashmiri Hurriyat Leader Mohammad Yasin Malik said that the apartheid and supremacist Indian state had no right to celebrate its Republic Day in the bleeding Kashmir, which was turned by notorious Narendra Modi regime into garrison city and a slaughter house.
Speaking at a seminar titled ‘Occupation of Kashmir: Negation of Indian Claims as Democracy’ here on Thursday organized by YFK-International Kashmir Lobby Group at Department of Anthropology Pir Mehr Ali Shah Arid Agriculture University, she said that the RSS-inspired fascist government unleashed a wave of state terrorism and brutalities to suppress the dissenting voices.
However, Mushaal, Chairperson Peace and Culture Organisation, stated that they could not dampen the courage of the brave Kashmiri people, who, she said, would continue their freedom struggle until getting the birthright to self-determination.
It is pertinent to mention here that Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and across the world observed Indian Republic Day, as Black Day in protest against India’s continued denial of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination.
The Chairperson went on to say that it was shameful for India to call itself a republic despite the illegal occupation of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), which was converted into a world largest tortured cell.
Mushaal said that the notorious Indian authorities usurped fundamental rights of the Kashmiris, as top Kashmiri leadership including Yasin Malik were put in jails in fake and fabricated cases just to silence their voices.
She lamented that India was committing the worst atrocities and usurped all legal and constitutional rights of Kashmiris but the international community, UN bodies and human rights organization still called it the largest democracy, which was disgusting.
The hurriyat leader stated that India was not a largest democracy but a world most fascist and apartheid state, where living a life not only for Kashmiris muslims but for all other minority communities a nightmare, who were subjected to inhuman and barbaric acts. She said that the Kashmir dispute was still unresolved and pending with the United Nations due to the world powers and UN bodies’ apathy and callous attitude towards Kashmiris.
Mushaal vowed that despite the atrocities of the Indian troops, the Kashmiri people would not give up their struggle and would continue it till taking the freedom struggle to its logical end. She said the current situation of IIOJK was a big challenge for the international community and urged the world powers to help settle the lingering Kashmir dispute according to the UN resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people to avoid the world worst looming humanitarian and human crises.
