Kashmiris facing genocide in all respects

Srinagar, January 28 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat organizations have warned that Indian Army can mastermind any false flag operation to create a war-like situation in the sub-continent and to defame Pakistan and the Kashmir movement.

Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir People’s League, Young Men’s League and other Hurriyat organizations in their statements in Srinagar said, India’s drama of arresting its own senior police officer Davinder Singh has exposed that its own forces’ personnel have been involved in violent operations in occupied Kashmir. They cited the massacre of 35 Sikhs in Chittisinghpura in 2000, the Samjhota Express blasts in 2007, the attack on Indian Parliament in 2001 and Amritsar attack in 2018 to prove that all these operations were masterminded by the then Indian army chiefs to malign Pakistan and the Kashmiri mujahideen.

The Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement in Srinagar paid rich tributes to the victims of massacres of Gaw Kadal, Handwara and Kupwara carried out by Indian troops in 1990s. It reiterated its demand of an impartial probe into these mass killings to punish the perpetrators. »

Guwahati, Jan 28 (KMS): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was forced to cancel his visit to the country’s troubled northeast for the second time in less than two months owing to the raging agitation against the new citizenship law passed by Parliament last month.
Modi was supposed to inaugurate the youth games called Khelo India in Guwahati January 10, but it was cancelled two days ahead of the event. There was speculation among some official circles that the prime minister would turn up at the closing ceremony of the games but that did not happen.
Just a week ahead of the games, a cricket match between India and Sri Lanka had to be cancelled in the city due to rains but spectators from the gallery shouted slogans against Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and another senior minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who are staunch advocates of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. »
