Amristar, Dec 8, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)
To highlight the dismal plight of Kashmiri people suffering from 115 days of lockdown, the Dal Khalsa and SAD (Amritsar) will march towards Srinagar to observe World Human Rights Day with Kashmiris on Dec 10.
Informing the media, party senior leader H S Dhami said their members would proceed towards Srinagar on Dec 9 and reach the valley next morning to hold peaceful sit-in at Lal Chowk.
He said they decided to reach out to Kashmiris this year as they were the worst sufferers in the hands of Indian establishment. “ There are gross human rights abuses going on in Kashmir since last few years. This year it has reached at an alarming situation. Being a next door neighbor, we are concerned and disturbed too, said he.
Dal Khalsa ex-president appealed to all human rights bodies and civil rights groups worldwide to spare a thought for the people of Kashmir when they observe the anniversary of World Human Rights Day in their states and countries.
Deriding international bodies for paying only lip service to the cause of Kashmir, the Dal Khalsa statement stated that, “The suppressed people of Kashmir need succour, support and an international voice to uphold their fundamental rights.”
On the occasion of Human Rights Day, Dal Khalsa will also voice concern about systematic denial of justice in Punjab in the Maur Bomb blast case, the Behbal Kalan firing case and Bargarhi sacrilege cases.
The Dal Khalsa will also take the cause of custodial torture, illegal detention and harassment of under trials, prevalence of archaic laws, like 124-A, UAPA, denial of reprieve to political prisoners and special concessions to police personnel responsible for human rights abuses.
