Srinagar, November 07 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, resistance leaders Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai have paid rich tributes to the two youth, Muhammad Idrees Sultan and Aamir Ahmed Rather, martyred by Indian troops during a cordon and search operation at Safanagri in Shopian district, yesterday.

The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar said India, suffering from arrogance of power, has bitterly failed to suppress the Kashmiris’ voice for freedom. The Hurriyat forum Chief, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, said, Kashmiri youth are spilling their hot blood on daily basis for the cause of right to self-determination. The Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai said that the Kashmir people despite facing the worst kind of oppression were challenging India and its hegemony in the occupied territory.

Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai also thanked the people from Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Syria and Nigeria for staging a silent protest against the Indian aggression in occupied Kashmir and for showing spectacular solidarity with their Kashmiri brethren during the yearly Chehlum procession of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) from Najaf to Karbala. He said the way millions of people shared pain and raised their voice for Kashmiri people is commendable and it has infused a new life in the freedom sentiment of the Kashmiri people.

Complete shutdown was observed in Safanagri and Awneera areas of Shopian district, today, to mourn the killing of the youth, Muhammad Idrees Sultan and Amir Hussain Rathar. Many people were injured, mostly with pellets when Indian troops used force on protesters in Kaimoh area of Kulgam district. The troops launched a cordon and search operation in Mawer area of Kupwara district, today.
