Bloodbath in Kashmir part of New Delhi’s policy of ‘aggression’: Hurriyat (M)
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Thursday said the bloodbath and rising graph of human rights violations in Kashmir is the part of the New Delhi’s policy of ‘aggression and military might’, being followed by the lakhs of forces deployed on ground.
In a statement issued here, the amalgam spokesman paid tributes to two armed youth Adnan Lone and Adil Ahmed Bhat who were killed in an encounter with forces at Shaar-Shali Khrew.
The amalgam spokesman said that the killing of youth is part of the Delhi’s strategy of planned genocide in Kashmir where in forces are selectively killing the youth.
“While as youth are being killed on daily basis, people of Kashmir are subjected to worst form of oppression even as an atmosphere of ultimate fear looms large everywhere in Kashmir,” he said.
Hurriyat (M) spokesman strongly condemned the use of force on the funeral procession of slain youth Mehraj ud Din killed in Chattergam gunfight, stating that “perhaps Kashmir is the only place in the world where funerals of youth too aren’t spared and instead showered with tear gas shells, pellets and live bullets.”
He said use of force on the funeral reflects ultimate frustration on part of the authorities and the worst form of state terrorism. The spokesman said that “ultimate oppression is being unleashed across Kashmir to push the people into submission and to stop them from legitimate right, the right to self determination.”
“Kashmir dispute can’t be kept lingering for a long period anymore and that the international community can’t act as a mute spectator over the worst ever war crimes taking place in Kashmir on daily basis,” he said. Meanwhile, senior Hurriyat leader Ghulam Nabi Zaki participated in the funeral of slain militant in Sopore and also paid tributes to him.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq expressed his heartfelt condolence over the demise of Haji Ghulam Rasool Banday, the elder brother of Hurriyat’s political advisor Advocate Abdul Majeed Banday. Mirwaiz expressed his condolence, sympathy and solidarity with the Banday family and prayed for the highest standards in Janah for the deceased.
