Islamabad, May 3 (KMS): Hurriyat All Parties Conference, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (APHC-AJK), held a demonstration outside the National Press Club, Islamabad, on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, today.
The purpose of this protest is to draw the attention of the United Nations and other international human rights organizations to the atrocities against Kashmiri journalists occupied by Indian forces.
Speaking on that occasion, Hurriyat leaders lamented that in occupied Kashmir, the Indian government was harassing journalists and people related to journalism through black law.
They say that it has become a routine of the occupying authorities to impose restrictions on the media and silence prominent journalists by applying one tactic or another. They point out that so far some journalists have been charged with accusations under the well-known Prevention Act (Prevention) Act (UAPA) in occupied Kashmir.
Hurriyat leaders say that India has imposed a ban on media including social media to keep the world unaware of its atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
They urged the world community to pressure India to stop harassing journalists in occupied Kashmir.
Hurriyat leaders hold placards with slogans against India and support Kashmiri journalists.
