Srinagar, October 29 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has lashed out at Indian army Chief General Bipin Rawat and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for their remarks on Kashmir.

Mirwaiz took to his Twitter handle and wrote: “Faatima Begum battling for her eyesight after a barrage of pellets hit her in her house! This is how General Rawat intends to keep Jammu and Kashmir a part of India…And Arun Jaitley ensures Kashmiri people are on our side.”

The Mirwaiz was referring to the mother of a martyred teenage boy who is battling for her eyesight at SHMS Hospital in Srinagar, after being hit by a barrage of pellets fired by the troops into her house, the other day.

On Saturday, General Rawat had said that Indian Army as well Indian state was strong enough to ensure Jammu and Kashmir remains part of India. He had also threatened Pakistan saying if Islamabad continues to support Kashmir’s freedom struggle, then the Indian Army can resort to “other actions” too.

Meanwhile, soon after his release from three weeks of house arrest, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, today, visited the residence of Rayees Ahmad, Meraj Bangroo of Fateh Kadal & Faid Mushtaq of Khanyar who were martyred by troops during a cordon and search operation in Fateh Kadal area of Srinagar, recently.

On the occasion, the Mirwaiz expressed condolences with the bereaved families and prayed for highest standards in Jannah for the departed souls.
