IPHRC-OIC slams Indian government’s denial of burial rites of Syed Ali Geelani

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC) of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned the Indian government for its denial of the right to choose burial rites and site for Syed Ali Shah Geelani.


In a Twitter statement on Thursday, the IPHRC-OIC said that the iconic Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Geelani peacefully supported the human rights and freedoms of Kashmiri Muslims including their right to self-determination as enshrined in the UN Security Council Resolution for over seven decades.

The IPHRC-OIC also condemned the Indian government’s actions in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) to impose the communication blockade by snapping internet, imposition of curfew/restrictive lockdown limiting freedom of movement and assembly of Kashmiris to deny them to peacefully mourn and bid farewell to their beloved leader.
