Srinagar, March 11 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Hurriyat Leadership (JRL) has termed the NIA summons to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Ali Gilani’s son, Syed Naseem Gilani, and asking them to appear before NIA in New Delhi, as sheer political vendetta.

The leadership in a statement in Srinagar said that the NIA raids on the residences of Hurriyat leaders and their relatives followed by summoning them to New Delhi is a fresh attempt to build pressure on them so that they stop pursing the resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

It said in the past, NIA and other Indian agencies conducted raids on the residences of resistance leaders including women and later arrested many who continue to languish in New Delhi’s Tihar jail in the past two years without any trial. The leadership, the statement added, said they have made it clear that they would not come under any pressure and face the fresh onslaught of Delhi in the form of NIA and ED raids and summons with full resilience but continue to pursue the cause of truth and justice.

The resistance leadership strongly denounced the arrest spree, ban on Jamaat-e-Islami, slapping of draconian Public Safety Act (PSA) on the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik and many others and said that the repressive measures were tested in the past as well but failed to yield any result and the only way to ensure peace in the region is to settle the Kashmir dispute as per the will of Kashmiri people.

The leadership hailed the support extended by the traders, transporters and other segments of the society towards leadership and thanked them.
