JK turned red by killing innocent Kashmiris: JRL
Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) Tuesday said that Jammu and Kashmir have been turned red by spilling the blood of innocent Kashmiris who are asking for their right to self-determination.
JRL comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued here said that “forces has gone berserk in Kashmir and it is slaughtering humans at will without any remorse or repentance. Our young men and boys are falling to the bullets and residential houses and properties to explosives and chemicals.”
“To justify their crimes against humanity, authorities dub slain Kashmiris as terrorists and houses along with civilians as supporters of terrorism which is outrageous,” asserted JRL.
“We want to ask a question to the rulers and their ‘viceroy’ like Governor in Kashmir that why was the eyesight of 18-month-old baby Hiba Jan snatched by pellets. Was she a terrorist or stone thrower or even an agitator? We want to ask them about the crime of 15-year-old Muskaan Jan who was gunned down by their coward forces. Was she carrying a gun or a stone at the time she was showered with bullets,” asked JRL.
They said that leaders and their deployed authorities in Jammu Kashmir have unleashed and expedited this reign of terror and massacres in a bid to defeat Kashmiri resistance but they fail to realize that if defeating or intimidating a nation that has resolved to achieve freedom and right to self-determination would have been possible then many nations including India would not have been sovereign countries today.
JRL said that “India and its viceroy in the form of Governor, should wake up from their daydreaming and realize that India will have to accept the aspirations of the people of Jammu Kashmir.
“Authorities will have to bow before people’s resistance sooner or later and accept the right of self-determination of the people of Jammu Kashmir as it is also in the in the interest of their own nation and the people,” the JRL said.
Meanwhile, leaders and activists from JRL gathered at Koker-bazar Lal Chowk and staged a protest against killing of Kashmiris by forces.
Scores of people from walks of life also participated in today’s protest program.
Holding placards and raising slogans against ‘unending carnage’ by forces the participants condemned what they termed as Indian aggression against unarmed Kashmiris.
The protest demonstration was addressed by various JRL leaders.
