ISLAMABAD: Mushaal Hussein Mullick, who is the wife of detained Kashmiri leader Mohammad Yasin Malik, said that the state barbarism and terrorism unleashed by the fascist Indian security forces have crossed all limits and made life for the innocent Kashmiris especially for the thousands of widows a hell. The Chairperson Peace and Culture Organization Mushaal said that the brutal occupied forces have killed more than one hundred thousand Kashmiris from 1989 to April 2020 and over 22913 women were widowed in the valley.She said that Kashmiri women always stood by their Kashmiri freedom fighters like a rock and never hesitated to give any sacrifice to break the shekels of Indian slavery. Mushaal said that being a wife of a detained Kashmiri leader, she, her little daughter and the whole family have been passing through the unimaginable hardship but she added that they are facing all these pains to make the dream of right to self-determination a reality.She said that no one can imagine the pains the widows of Kashmiris are passing through since there is hardly any home where there is no widow, as the notorious forces raiding their homes on almost daily basis.She said that the valiant Kashmiri women deserved all praises who sacrificed their husbands for the right to self-determination but nothing could dampen their courage.However, she lamented that the United Nations observed 23 June as International Widows Day since 2011, to draw attention to the voices and experiences of widows and to galvanize the unique support that they need. But unfortunately, the UN mere observing an Internal Widows Day and is doing nothing practical for the changing plight of the widows.She demanded that the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to take notice of the rising Indian forces barbarism and atrocities especially against the widows in the occupied valley.Mushaal said that if the world bodies and international community are taking no tangible steps to ease the vows of the Kashmiri widows, the mere observation of Widows Day is of no use.
