Addressing a protest rally to mark International Human Rights Day, expressing solidarity with people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) and flaking Indian forces atrocities on them, he said this ugly act was taken while raising voice of Kashmiri people against Indian forces atrocities in held valley. International human rights bodies should also take notice of this prejudice act as this is tantamount to throttle voice of IOK people, he maintained.
