He said, it is not for the first time a prominent figure is being killed while Indian regime has already martyred a number of renowned Kashmiri figures so far but by such ruthless acts, New Delhi cannot suppress voice of the oppressed people of Kashmir.

Ali Raza Syed said that the people of Kashmir were struggling for the right to self-determination accepted under the UN Security Council’s resolutions and as per a promise committed by the Indian authorities and India could not stop the peaceful movement of the Kashmiris.
He demanded of the world community to stop atrocities against the innocent and peaceful people of Kashmir and play a role for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
