March towards Islamabad town tomorrow » Kashmir Media Service

Entire Hurriyat leadership detained in IOK

Srinagar, December 14 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, a massive march will be conducted, tomorrow, towards Islamabad town where a big public gathering will be held at Lal Chowk in the town.

Call for the march has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik to highlight the miseries of the Kashmiri people at the hands of Indian occupation forces. The leaders in a joint statement issued in Srinagar deplored that the puppet authorities had put almost entire resistance leadership either under house arrest or in custody to stop the march. They asked the Indian rulers and their local stooges to shun their policies of coercion and allow the Hurriyat leadership to conduct political activities. The leaders urged India to realize the fact that it will never succeed to suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom struggle through military might.

Meanwhile, the puppet authorities continue to put Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Bilal Siddiqi, Molvi Bashir Ahmed, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Zafar Akbar Butt, Muhammad Yasin Attai and Muhammad Ashraf Laya under house arrest or in jails and police stations to stop them from leading the march. Indian police and troops in their continued crackdown in South Kashmir have arrested scores of people to prevent the march.

The Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq at a meeting in Srinagar condemning the curbs on Hurriyat leaders described it as frustration of the Indian authorities.

Kashmir Tehreek-e-Khawateen Chairperson, Zamruda Habib visited Handwara area of Kupwara and expressed solidarity with the family members of a woman, Misra Begum, who was recently martyred by Indian troops.

Hurriyat leaders, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, Zafar Akbar Butt, Javaid Ahmed Mir and Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party in their separate statements paid glowing tributes to renowned Islamic scholar and liberation leader, Shams-ul-Haq on his 25th martyrdom anniversary.

An Indian soldier committed suicide by shooting himself with his service rifle in R S Pora area of Jammu. This incident raised such deaths among the Indian troops and police personnel to 393 since January 2007.
