Resistance leaders detained

Srinagar, December 20 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown was observed, today, to protest against the killing spree, unleashed by Indian forces in the territory.

Call for the strike was given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, and was supported by the High Court Bar Association of the occupied territory. All shops and business establishments were closed while traffic was off the road.

The puppet authorities had imposed restrictions by placing coils of barbed wire at traffic crossings in Ràinawari, Nowhatta, Khanyar, Maharaj Gunj, Safakadal, Maisuma and Kralkhud areas of Srinagar. Indian troops and police personnel were deployed in strength to prevent people from staging anti-India protests.

The joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement in Srinagar said that the Kashmir Valley had been converted into a killing field where the lives of men, women and even children were not safe from killers in uniform. Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that the imposition of curfew-like restrictions in Srinagar and other parts of the territory was a clear proof that India and its local stooges had no guts to compete with the resistance leadership on political front.

The students of Kashmir University staged demonstrations in Srinagar to mourn the killing of two youth and a woman by the Indian troops in Shopian, yesterday. They raised pro-Pakistan, pro-freedom and anti-India slogans. Taxi drivers held a protest in Kralpora area of Kupwara district against the killing of a fellow, Asif Iqbal, who was martyred in firing by Indian troops in Sopore, on Saturday night.

A delegation of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front visited the family members of Indian state terrorism victims — Asif Iqbal, Ruby Jan and Tanvir Ahmad —in Kupwara and Shopian districts and expressed solidarity with them.

While Syed Ali Gilani continues to remain under house arrest since 2010, the puppet authorities put Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house detention and arrested Hurriyat leaders, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, Javed Ahmad Mir, Molvi Bashir Ahmad and a member of so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdur Rasheed. The police raided the residence of Hurriyet leader, Hakeem Abdul Raseed in Srinagar, and harassed his ailing mother. The train service between north Kashmir’s Baramulla town and Jammu’s Bannihal town remained suspended, today.
