Sehrai pays tribute to slain Kulgam, Tral militants
Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai on Tuesday expressed grief over what he termed as ‘prevailing grim situation’ in Kashmir.
Sehrai in a statement issued here said that “the lack of political will, strategic and economic interests are the reason why the international community appears powerless to halt humanitarian crisis in Kashmir and hold India accountable.”
“The world community is the victim of this moral and human distortion,” Sehrai said, adding that when everyone involved in the massacre in Kashmir and many other centers of friction has allowed India to carry out crimes against humanity without any international criticism, ‘massacre continues’.
Sehrai said, “These powers do not value human life and divine values one single bit, and they pay no attention to the concerns of humanity at the time when Kashmiris are subjected to tyranny. These men claim to advocates for human rights, have they no shame? The same people who sympathize with animals, the same people who magnify every problem that exists in countries which are not dependent on them, have been silent while innocent and defenseless men, women and children are being killed. Their behavior reveals how uncommitted and negligent they are regarding humans.”
Paying tributes to Kulgam and Tral militants and expressed solidarity, pain and grief with the bereaved families, he said, “These youth spilled their precious blood for the great and sacred cause of Kashmir and the entire nation of Kashmir is indebted to these martyrs for their ultimate sacrifice.”
He said it is the collective responsibility of the people of Kashmir and the leadership in particular to take the ongoing movement to its ultimate realization.
“The unprecedented sacrifices of Kashmiri people for Kashmir cause would not go waste. India could not silence the voices of Kashmiris through use of brute force,” he said.
Sehrai strongly condemned the use of force on protestors, leaving many injured in indiscriminate bullet pellet and tear gas shelling. “This is absolute highhandedness of forces,” Sehrai said.
He said that “the message is clear anyone raising his/her voice against the illegal occupation will get bullet, pellet and death. Atrocities in Kashmir can never suppress a just indigenous political struggle for self- determination.”
