Srinagar, June 23, 2017 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders and organizations have paid glorious tributes to the youth recently martyred by Indian troops in siege and search operations. The joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar said that after the threats by Indian Army Chief, General Bipin Rawat, the graph of civilian killings in the territory had risen. The arrogance, haughtiness and unrealistic approach of Indian authorities were the basic reasons for the prevailing situation in the territory, it added.
The Dukhtaran-e-Millat General Secretary, Nahida Nasreen, in a statement in Srinagar expressed concern over increase in killing of civilians. The graph of killing of innocent civilian has increased since the beginning of the holy month of Ramazan, she added. The General Secretary of JKLF-R, Wajahat Bashir Qureshi in a statement in Srinagar paying tributes to martyrs said that Indian forces were unnecessarily harassing and intimidating the innocent masses throughout the Kashmir Valley.
The Jamaat-e-Islami of the territory in its statement in Srinagar described the killings as unjustified besides a blatant violation of all the fundamental human rights. “These forces use unabated power resulting in the further killings and injuries to the innocent persons. So far hundreds of innocent persons have lost their lives and hundred others got injured during such tyrannical actions by the Indian forces,” it added.
Delegations of Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement, Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League and Peoples Political Front visited Pulwama and Sopore and expressed solidarity with the families of the martyred youth. Other Hurriyet leaders including Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Khawaja Firdous Wani and Muhammad Ahsan Untoo in their statements paid glowing tributes to the martyred youth and said that the sacrifices of Kashmiri martyrs would not be allowed go waste.
