Hurriyat (G) protests against ‘selective’ killings
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Friday organized a protest rally against they what they termed as the hike in ‘selective, mysterious and custodial killing’ of political activists, scholars and intellectuals “at the hands of Indian agencies” and incarcerating of innocent people including journalists, students and political activists on fictitious grounds.
The protestors as per a statement issued here were demanding intervention of United Nations Human Rights Commission to take serious cognizance of the “grass violation of human rights” in Jammu and Kashmir.
The protestors marched towards the main Chowk Hyderpora while carrying the placards and banners to highlight their demands to safeguard their political and civil rights with reference to the movement for right to self-determination.
Addressing the gathering at Hyderpora, Hurriyat Secretary Public Relations, Molvi Bashir Irfani said that “the policy of suppression and repression in Jammu and Kashmir has failed to yield any positive results for India.”
“Through the elongated period of ordeal and barbarism since 1947, India is currently facing a powerful people’s political movement for right to self-determination in every nook and corner of the state of Jammu and Kashmir,” Irfani said.
He said that “by using its heavy military power, Kashmir has been turned into a beautiful prison and a hell for its populace, but it has utterly failed to suppress the people’s sentiments for their legitimate demand for resolution of Kashmir issue in exercise of right to self-determination as recommended by the UNO.”
Paying tributes to Hakim-ur-Rehman and Dr. Abdul Ahad, Irfani blamed agencies for their killings and leaving their families in a pathetic condition.
The protestors also raised slogans in favour of a complete election boycott for any upcoming polls in the state.
