JRL condemns fresh wave of terror unleashed by India in IOK

Srinagar, September 08 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has strongly condemned the fresh wave of terror unleashed by the government of India against the Kashmiri people and Hurriyat leaders.

The resistance leaders in a statement in Srinagar said that banking on the military might, New Delhi was trying to choke all space for the pro-freedom leadership. “To keep the resistance leaders away from the people, all undemocratic means are being employed by Delhi and its stooges in Kashmir while the worst form of oppressive measures are being used to suppress the genuine dissent,” they said.

The resistance leaders said that 2016 was witness to the worst-ever and ultimate form of repression unleashed by Indian forces that left thousands blinded and maimed by the pellets; more than 126 youth killed, over 15,000 injured with bullets and pellets and hundreds slapped with draconian law Public Safety Act and lodged in different jails in and outside the occupied territory including Srinagar Central Jail, Islamabad Jail, Baramulla Jail, Kathua Jail, Udhampur Jail, Kot Bhalwal Jail and Tihar Jail. “Fact remains that the real state of affairs in Jammu and Kashmir are run and managed by the Indian Home Ministry and every step is being taken on their direction while the so-called government in the territory is only a stooge,” they said.

The leaders said that under a well-planned conspiracy to defame the Kashmiri leadership and the ongoing movement for freedom on the directions of Indian Home Ministry, the NIA had been assigned the job of harassing and intimidating the pro-freedom leaders, their families, friends, and business community also. They said that basic purpose of the raid spree being carried out by the NIA was to instill fear among the pro-freedom leadership and the people of occupied Kashmir.

The resistance leaders said, Kashmir is not territorial or law and order dispute but a political dispute acknowledged by the UN through its 18 resolutions pending implementation and these resolutions give the right to self-determination to the people of Kashmir. They also condemned the raids conducted by the NIA on the residences of Hurriyat leaders, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, Showkat Ahmed Bakhshi, Zameer Thakur and others, saying that the only aim of these raids is to build pressure on the pro-freedom leaders to stop advocating people’s cause for freedom.

The resistance leaders said such oppressive tactics cannot break the resolve of the pro-freedom leaders who are duty-bound and committed to work towards the final settlement of the Kashmir dispute as per the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

They also called for complete shutdown in the occupied territory on Sunday (September 10) against Indian Home Minister, Rajnath Singh’s proposed visit to Srinagar. “By observing the strike, people of Kashmir will prove to the world community and the Indian leadership that by using military might against the people or harassing their genuine leadership, the freedom struggle of Kashmir cannot be crushed,” they added.
