Desecration of Grand Mosque: JRL appeals people to observe Jan 04 as ‘Youm-e-Taqaddus’
Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Monday appealed people to observe January 04, the upcoming Friday as Youm-e-Taqaddus’ besides appealing for joint prayers at the historic Jamia Masjid in view of recent attempts to ‘desecrate’ the pulpit of Jamia Masjid by some masked youth.
JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a joint statement issued here said, “Every nation at the end of the year proudly announces its achievements in various fields, sets new targets for the coming year and compares their previous short comings to ensure better quality of life in future, but our oppressed nation is forced to keep the count of our dead ones, keep the record of death and destruction around us.”
The trio as per a statement also held a meeting today at Hyderpora wherein they condemned the unfortunate incident of ‘desecration’ of pulpit of Jamia Masjid Srinagar and said that “these mischievous actions cannot be tolerated and people should be cautious and conscious about such disrespectful events.”
Describing the horrifying situation of the state of Jammu and Kashmir and labeling the year 2018 as “Red-18”, JRL said that human blood is spilled all over the state. Every street, every slope, busy markets, open fields or even long and torturous borders– everywhere there is blood of humans, be it of armed youth, common people, government informers, political workers, freedom lovers, policemen or even Indian armed forces, everybody’s blood is red and whenever it is spilled, humanity ceases to exist.
Giving details of the bloody events of 2018, the trio said that more than 587 violent incidents have cost 240 armed youth, 37 civilians, 86 armed forces in addition to thousands of bullet and pallet injuries.
“Scores of residential houses have been raised to ground by the dynamite,” they said.
They said that elderly people, kids and women have been made to shiver in bone chilling temperature of -80, setting new records of cruelty and inhumanness and South Kashmir is the worst hit. “Dozens of our budding youth are massacred daily and shameless forces are celebrating this bloodshed, because they have been licensed to kill us to get the perks and privileges on every life lost to their trigger,” the trio added.
JRL said that “our oppressed nation is fighting a military might for the last 7 decades. A few youth with minimal weaponry have engaged more than a million forces with latest armory– now time has come for our nation to be united to safeguard their own collective sacrifices. They should stop becoming tools by the greedy stooges who always strengthen the grip of ‘forces’ only for their personnel gains.”
The leadership said that these self-centered, multi-faced pro-Indian politicians every now and then pop up with latest slogans—nowadays their belly is again aching with colic of “Autonomy”, sometimes they yell to Hurriyat to “go ahead” just to en-cash the public sentiment, they roar with the slogan of “Bharat Mata Ki Jail” to appease their masters. Divergent supporters come together to share the power, they can cross any limit, even the blood bath to retain their chair”.
They said that every pro-Indian group competes with their rivals in killings, maiming, blinding and destruction.
“If one killed hundreds of school going children like TufailMatoo and WamiqFarooq, other in her tenure sarcastically commented “milk and toffee” remarks to justify ruthless killings,” the leaders said.
They said that “now the fresh entrants, masters in the art of deceit and appeasement, groomed and nourished in the lap of saffron brigade have been assigned the job of collaborators. Political vultures from every filth and dampness are attracted to this new power source.”
Taking a pledge not to surrender before the military might used in full swing to suppress the resistance sentiments of the people, the leader reiterated their commitment to continue the struggle for achieving right to self-determination despite all odds.
JRL urged United Nations and International Human Rights Organizations to take cognizance of recent report by UNHRC about the deteriorating human values and prevailing bloodshed in the state and urged them to use their good offices and to take steps for its peaceful resolution and for putting an end to this bloodshed by the Indian forces.
