President TeK UK Raja Fahim Kayani said that Sehrai was an icon of on going liberation movement in Kashmir who laid his life for the sacred Kashmir cause. Sehari’s custodial killing demonstrates that Indian occupation regime is adamant to use all available tools to subjugate the people of Indian Illegally  Occupied Jammu and Kashmir IIOJK into submission. But the sacrifice of Sehrai testifies that no matter what, India can never break the will of the Kashmiri leadership. They are willing to give their life but will never compromise on the principle stand of  right of self-determination.
