“The bragging of the Amit Shah that abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A would ensure peace in the valley has been proven to be wrong and Kashmir is now under undeclared martial law. Brutalities of the army have exceeded all limits of human decency,” Faizy said.
Faizy, demanded that the inhumane atrocities of the army in Kashmir should be ended immediately and an independent team of human rights and social activists be allowed to visit Kashmir and take stock of the situation and report it. (with Inputs from Muslim Mirror)
