London (August 15, 2010): As per a news posted at website of Kashmir Media Service (dt: August 15) Kashmiri, Sikh and Naga Diaporas in London, representing a common front against Indian imperialism, have condemned the oppression and human rights violations by Indian troops in their territories.
A joint statement issued in London on 64th anniversary of India’s independence, reiterated to continue the liberation struggles in their respective territories to secure freedom for their nations. It appealed the international community to dismantle the illegal occupation of their homelands by India.
The statement said, “Since 1947 India has forcibly denied our sovereign rights under international law. India has snatched our right to determine our own political status, to control our natural resources ourselves and to protect our populations and territories from human rights abuses amounting to genocide.”
The statement said that India was not sincere to settle the disputes on Kashmir, Khalistan, Nagalim, Assam, Manipur and Bodoland. “All the disputes have arisen from a common source which is India,” they added.
Flaying the deployment of occupation troops in the territories, the statement said that Indian troops were killing hundreds of thousands of people with impunity to muzzle their just voice for their right to self-determination. “The occupation authorities were committing extra-judicial killings, disappearances, rape, torture, illegal detentions and extortion in these areas,” it maintained.
Quoting the August 2009, United States Commission for International Religious Freedoms’ report, which put India on its watch list of states that fail to protect minority religious groups, it said that recent years have seen massive rights abuses by the troops directed towards Christians, Muslims and Sikhs in Indian occupied territories. “The peace and stability in South Asia can not prevail till the resolution of these disputes,” it added.
