The senior Hurriyat Leader and Chairman Salvation Movement and Joint Association of kasmiri Affected Families Jinab Zaffar Akber Bhat,On the eve of celebrating of this years U.N.TORTURE DAY 2011along with other nations of the Globe supported the genuine Rights and the interests of inhabitants of our Mother land Jammu and Kashmir necessarily to be dfended in accordance with the guaranteed Rights and assurances through this MEDIA COMMUNIQUE as under:.
The history of the genuine movements has experienced and faced the mental. Physical and psychological torture in the recent past in many corners of the world. In response to such inhuman and barbaric tactics the civilized international thinkers and human rights leaders has extended their sincerest support for organizing of seminars and conferences against the torture globally. Here in this part of the world the inhabitants of the civil society are subjected to torture and humiliation in their every day business from dawn to dusk, under the cover of the strictest provision of Armed Forces Special Powers Act, Disturbed Area Act, Public Safety Act etc. in force here since long. The present ground scenario is normal in its self explanatory nature to some extent and as such in any way not presents the slightest look of war zone like situations. Under these circumstances the trampling of the internationally guaranteed Human Rights and dealing of peaceful public with violent force also can be termed as a “mass torture” which in no way has any justification to support. Torture in any form and any where and at any stage of public movement is condemnable and as such the policy of torture is condemned on this U.N. Torture Day 2011 under same spirits as worked out against the torture globally by the civilized Human Rights leaders of the civilized nations. The barbaric state actions have resulted in thousands of killings, custodial deaths and Disappearances. The families of those killed or Disappeared and the slain militants are continuously being harassed systematically under a preplanned torture policy since long.
On the occasion of this year’s U.N.TORTURE DAY 2011 the J & K Salvation Movement and Joint Association Of Kashmiri Affected Families Jointly appeals the Amnesty International H.R.Organization for their sincere intervention providing for earliest revocation of Draconian Laws and to Forced Torture policy form the soil of Kashmir.
