Indian Occupied forces carrying out systematic genocide: Mirwaiz.

Srinagar -- In occupied Kashmir, the Hurriyet forum Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that Indian forces, taking advantage of impunity given to them under draconian laws, are carrying out a systematic genocide of young population in the territory.

Mirwaiz while denouncing the murderous assault on a 16-year-old student Qaiser Hameed Sofi called upon the international human rights bodies to take notice of Indian brutalities in occupied Kashmir said a press release issued on Tuesday.

Qaiser Hameed Sofi, a resident of Shalimar and a student of Mirak Shah Sahab School, was arrested by the forces and beaten, tortured and then forcibly fed a germicide called Neva and left in an unconscious state on the roadside. He is battling for his life at Soura Institute of Medical Sciences in Srinagar.

"Such cruelty and barbarity find few parallels in today's age," said the Mirwaiz while expressing sympathy and sharing the pain of Qaisar's parents.

He said that the forces' personnel were harassing people through crackdowns and ransacking of homes. He also expressed sympathy and solidarity with the parents of a nine-year-old girl of Kulgam who died of cardiac arrest during these raids.
