Thousands attend funerals of martyred youth » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, June 20 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, thousands of people, today, attended the funerals of youth killed in siege and search operations by the Indian forces in Tral, Pulwama and Nowpora in Kulgam.

Three rounds of funeral prayers were held for Adil Akram Lone at his native Midoora village while the funeral prayers of his associate, Danish Khaliq Dar were held twice at Pinglish in Tral.

Pro-freedom and pro-Pakistan slogans were raised by the mourners at both the villages as the bodies were marched to the graveyards.

Thousands of people attended the funeral prayers of a civilian, Aijaz Ahmad Butt in Kulgam district.

He was shot dead and another person was injured in Indian troops’ indiscriminate firing on Monday evening during a protest against Indian troops’ highhandedness at Akhran Nowpora area of the district.

His 26-year-old widow, Naeema Akhtar is shocked into total silence, unable to cry or speak.

Their two little daughters — Deeba, 3 and Aiman, 2 — numbed and unable to comprehend what had happened, lay sitting next to their 27-year-old father’s body wrapped in a green flag with Islamic verses written on it in embroidery.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu Kashmir, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement in Srinagar paid tributes to the martyred Tral mujahideen and said, “Our brave youth are laying their lives to end the decades-old slavery and brutal Indian occupation and these budding youths putting a huge responsibility on our shoulders to honour these sacrifices and take the movement to its logical end.”

He said that the occupational forces were not only carrying the genocide of Kashmiri people but also ransacking and razing houses to the ground which is a gross violation of all international norms.

He appealed the local population of Tral and all Masjid committees in particular to help the family financially so that the razed house rebuild on priority basis.
