He said, “The situation in the Valley is worsening with each passing day and that authorities are only relying on their military might to suppress people’s aspirations.”

The Hurriyat forum Chief, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, while paying tributes to the martyrs said, “Kashmiri youth are spilling their hot blood on daily basis for the cause of right to self-determination. People are shouldering the coffins of their loved ones almost everyday and continue to remain steadfast towards their goal.” The Mirwaiz said, “People and the resistance leadership are duty bound to safeguard the mission of our youth and it’s high time that people forge unity at all levels so that we achieve the final goal at the earliest.”
