Srinagar, May 04 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have strongly condemned the killing of a student, Umar Kumhar, by the Indian troops in Shopian district.

Hurriyat leaders including Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Javaid Ahmed Mir, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, Muhammad Yasin Attai and Barrister Abdul Majeed Tramboo in their statements denouncing the killing said that India and its stooges in the territory would never succeed to suppress the Kashmiris’ ongoing liberation struggle through the use of brute force.

A spokesman of Tehreek-e-Muzahamat in a statement in Srinagar condemning the killing said that the Indian forces on the behest of their masters in New Delhi were working on a well-thought-out plan to eliminate youth in Kashmir.

A spokesman of Jamaat-e-Islami of the territory in a statement said that the Indian forces were targeting the youth throughout the Valley under a policy. He expressed solidarity with the bereaved family and appealed to the international community to support the true and just cause and genuine demand of the people of Kashmir and help them secure their inalienable right to self-determination.
