SRINAGAR: Chairman All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq appealed to the international community to impress upon India to stop human rights violations in the territory on Saturday.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Farooq, addressing a public gathering in Gandarbal, maintained that Indiaโ€™s claim of zero tolerance against rights abuse proved to be a hoax in the backdrop of fake encounters and targeted killing of innocent Kashmiris over the past few months.

Continued rights violations in the occupied territory and dialogue cannot go together, he added.

The APHC Chairman said that Pakistan, in its talks with India next week, should take up the issues of killings, repealing draconian laws like the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), disappearances and custodial torture in the territory.

The Mirwaiz urged India to stop the rights abuse, withdraw its troops and repeal all black laws from the territory before initiating meaningful talks on Kashmir.
He deplored that the occupation authorities had always tried to shield the culprits involved in the killing of innocent Kashmiri people.
