Terms the action as admission of defeat by puppet regime

Srinagar, December 16 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, has strongly condemned the puppet authorities for once again resorting to use of unbridled force to prevent the leadership and people from conducting a march towards Islamabad town where a peaceful rally was to be held.

The resistance leaders in a joint statement issued in Srinagar said that the rally, which was to be held at Lal Chowk in Islamabad, was aimed at expressing solidarity with the people of southern areas of Kashmir who have been facing the worst kind of Indian state terrorism for the past few months.

“While the entire Islamabad town was barricaded and turned into a military garrison and communication lines snapped, many parts of Srinagar were put under curfew and restrictions, even as resistance leaders and activists were caged through raids and arrests,” they said.

The leaders said that the puppet administration arrested dozens of Hurriyat leaders and activists in day-long and nocturnal raids to prevent the march. They said that the Indian police conducted raids on the houses of hundreds of youth in Srinagar and Islamabad only to instill fear among the people and scuttle the plans of the march.

The leaders said that the crackdown on the Hurriyat leadership to stop the march reflected acceptance of defeat by the puppet authorities. “Imposition of strict curfew, caging resistance leaders and conducting raids and blocking all the roads reflect the acceptance of defeat by the authorities as it signifies their nervousness and fear of exposure just on the call of peaceful rallies given by the resistance leadership,” they said.
