Srinagar, June 07 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, and other pro-freedom organizations have strongly condemned the arbitrary and coercive raids conducted by Indian National Agency on the residences and offices of Hurriyet leaders and activists.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said that despite Indian state terrorism, the people of Kashmir would continue their struggle for freedom and would never give up resistance or change their stance. He said that the raids were meant to drag and implicate Hurriyet leadership into fabricated cases.

He said that during daylong raids at the residences of Hurriyet leaders, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar and Meraj-ud-Din Kalwal, the NIA team found nothing except their mobile phones, laptop and documents pertaining to personal properties. “NIA sleuths after questioning found nothing and it is rather strange that instead of making things public, maintained a mysterious silence, and in turn Indian media without any reason and proof created unproportional and unnecessary hype. It is a well-thought-out plan to defame the freedom movement and resistance leadership,” he said.

The APHC Chairman said that Indian authorities were scared of the commitment of resistance leaders and people with the freedom movement and their main aim was to discredit and defame the Hurriyet leadership. He, however, added that “they failed and were defeated”.

Syed Ali Gilani while commenting over Indian Home Minister, Rajnath Singh’s recent statement said that the Kashmiri people were not scared of these intimidations and they would continue to pursue their mission with dedication until the Kashmir dispute was resolved as per their aspirations. He stressed for settling the Kashmir dispute by giving the Kashmiris their right to self-determination as was promised in the UN resolutions.

Meanwhile, the General Secretary of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM), Nahida Nasreen, in a statement said that the raids by NIA were aimed at maligning the image of the resistance leaders. “The ongoing movement has frustrated India and its puppets in Kashmir as the freedom movement has passed onto the fourth generation of Kashmiris and has become a people’s movement. The students’ movement has so much unnerved India and its stooges that they continuously keep the schools and colleges shut now,” she said. Nahida Nasreen said that similar kind of accusations and raids were conducted on the residences of resistance leadership in 2000 as well. “Nothing was found then and nothing will be the outcome of these raids now. These oppressors do such things to harass the resistance leaders,” she added.

The spokesman of High Court Bar Association of occupied Kashmir in a statement in Srinagar strongly denounced the NIA raids, terming these as illegal and immoral. He said that the raids were conducted to only terrorize, intimidate, harass and humiliate the people of Kashmir and suppress their voice for freedom.
