Threat calls served to Hurriyat leaders, activists: JRL
Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Saturday said that the ‘threat’ calls have been served by the Special Operation Group (SOG) to the leaders and other activists belonging to resistance movement.
JRL, comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Dr. Mohammad Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik as per a statement issued here expressed their grave concern over the use of military arrogance by the Special Operation Group (SOG) of police to summon political leaders and activists to their respective camps.
The JRL termed the SOG action as ‘a mark of tyranny and barbarism’ to suppress the voice of a popular movement for right to self-determination.
“At Air Cargo Srinagar, Islamabad, Kulgam, Shopian, Pulwama, Bandipora, Baramulla and in all other districts, the SOG personnel and the army intelligence agencies, as per reports from the political activists associated with the resistance movement, these agencies summon the said persons to their camps which has caused panic and consistent threat to their lives,” alleged JRL.
The JRL while condemning the SOG action to serve ‘threat’ calls to the leaders and other activists belonging to resistance movement, termed it “a worst example of depriving an innocent person from “right to live” as a basic right honoured all over the world.”
The trio appealed UN and its Human Rights Commission and all other recognized human rights organizations to take serious cognizance of “a dangerous threat” to the life of pro-resistance activists, because persistent denial of political and civil rights to the people of Kashmir has made their lives vulnerable at the hands of SOG and other military agencies of India.
