Srinagar: Strongly condemning the excessive use of power against the civilians by the armed forces, Hurriyat (G) on Wednesday said that on the pretext of search and cordon operations common people are deliberately targeted and victimized by the men in uniform.

Hurriyat Conference said that public delegations from different areas of the valley revealed that the armed forces have let loose a reign of terror in Kulgam, Shopian, Pulwama, Islamabad, Budgam, Baramulla, Kupwara, and Bandipora.

“People are harassed, tortured and threatened of dire consequences under the garb of search and cordon operations. In this grim situation, the life of common people has become miserable and vulnerable at the hands of the massive presence of armed forces, who outnumber the local population in the nook and corner of the state,” Hurriyat said.

While appealing the United Nations Human Rights Commission to take cognizance of the gross violation of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir, the Hurriyat Conference reiterated its demand that the civilized nations of the international community must rise to the occasion to help eradicate such gruesome human rights violations and must not leave the 100 million population of Jammu and Kashmir at the mercy of 8 lakh military personnel present in the state.
