Srinagar, November 24 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front held a march in Srinagar, today, after Friday prayers to express solidarity with the illegally detained Hurriyat leaders and activists languishing in various jails of the territory and India.

Scores of JKLF leaders and activists conducted the march from Maisuma to Lal Chowk in Srinagar. The protesters raised high-pitched anti-India and pro-freedom slogans. The participants also staged a sit-in protest at Budshah Chowk in Srinagar.

Addressing the sit-in, the JKLF leaders said, “We took out this march on the call of Joint Resistance Leadership to express solidarity with Hurriyat leaders and activists, including men, women and children, lodged in jails.”

They said that the protest was also organized to condemn the crackdown launched by Indian forces in south Kashmir. “We understand that the crackdown launched in the name of ‘Operation all-out’ by Indian forces in the Valley is a planned ploy to carry out massacre of Kashmiri youth,” They added.

The leaders also expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health of illegally detained Hurriyat leaders including Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Aasiya Andrabi, Peer Saifullah and Farooq Ahmed Dar.

They also condemned the arrest of the students of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri and slapping of draconian law, Public Safety Act, on a youth. They said that such tactics could not suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom sentiment and they would continue their struggle till complete success.
