Srinagar, January 22, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, and senior APHC leader, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, have paid glowing tributes to youth martyred by Indian troops in Budgam and Shopian areas.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that the lingering Kashmir dispute was the main cause of bloodshed in occupied Kashmir. He said that India’s stubborn attitude regarding this globally accepted political dispute and dealing with it only militarily had created death and destruction in occupied Kashmir and posed threat to peace and stability of the region.

Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in his statement paid homage to the martyred youth. He said that the Kashmiri youth were nourishing their freedom struggle with their blood. He said that India despite resorting to the worst kind of state terrorism in occupied Kashmir had failed to intimidate the Kashmiris into submission and they were determined to take their struggle for securing their right to self-determination to its logical conclusion, despite all odds. He urged the world community to stand up and support the right of self-determination of Kashmiri people to end their sufferings.
