YFK Statement On Indian Admission To Murder Of Kashmiri Teenagers
Indian Army’s Admission Of Murder
By Our Special Correspondent
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—India’s army issues a statement accepting responsibility for killing two Kashmir teenage boys.
The admission came under intense pressure from Kashmiri people, from Pakistan which formally raised the incident internationally, and from Indian human rights activists who follow Indian human rights violations in Kashmir.
The case vindicates dozens of similar cases where India’s occupation army in Kashmir killed innocent men and teenagers and resisted calls by Kashmiris and by the United Nations for accountability.
India’s army failed to meet its responsibilities as an administrator in an occupied region under relevant international conventions. Recently, the Indian occupation army stood by and allowed Kashmir Valley to drown in the worst flooding in a century.
We at Youth Forum For Kashmir (YFK), a platform for young Kashmiris in Pakistan, welcome the Indian army’s admission of guilt in killing the unarmed teenagers. We call on the Indian army and the Indian government to sustain this trend by speedy action on similar cases that await justice.
We take this opportunity to remind the Indian government about the plight of Kashmiri students studying in Indian schools. The students face verbal and physical abuse from Indian extremists regularly. It is a matter of concern that Kashmiri youth face physical attacks when they travel through Indian territory and are killed without reason at Indian occupation army checkpoints in Kashmir.
YFK calls on the Indian government to take visible steps to ensure the safety of Kashmiri youth in Kashmir and inside schools and colleges in India.
The YFK is a grassroots lobbying group led by young Kashmiris and Pakistanis working to ensure justice to Kashmiris living under Indian military occupation.
