Srinagar, February 15 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik commenting on the incident at Lethpora in Pulwama has said that the people and leadership of Kashmir regret every killing that happens in the territory.

The JRL in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “As we witness killing of our loved ones our young and shoulder their coffins each day we can feel and understand the pain and sense of loss that the family and friends of those who are killed go through, not for a day or two when everyone is expressing grief and condolences to them, but the silent grief and loss that stays with them for a lifetime.

The JRL said the delay in resolution of the Kashmir dispute, the denial to engage with the sentiments and aspirations of the people of Kashmir and instead the use of a muscular military approach to counter an essentially political and human problem, is wreaking havoc in Kashmir especially on next generation and consuming them, while those who are here to execute this policy are also under stress and are paying a price with their lives.

The JRL said that militarization, cordon and search operations, use of bullets and pellets, blowing up homes, blinding and maiming, slapping of draconian law Public Safety Act and torture as a means by India to crush legitimate political aspirations of people had not only failed but worsened the situation.

It said, “If this death dance has to stop, if hatred and revenge has to stop, if killing and counter-killing has to stop and if we really want peace in the region we have to put an end to hostilities. And the most effective and civilized manner to do so, is to reach out and engage and listen to the concerns of all three stakeholders and address them in the spirit of humanity and justice. Resolve the Kashmir dispute for all times.”

Meanwhile, the JRL strongly condemned the incidents of arson in Jammu city in which communal elements torched the vehicles of Muslims and injured many people. It said from 1947 communal elements are active in Jammu who leave no stone unturned to attack and intimidate Muslims and Kashmiri people. It is responsibility of the authorities to ensure the safety and security of Muslims and Kashmiris living Jammu, it added.
