Joint Hurriyat to people: ‘Ensure safety of every non-local here’


Srinagar, Feb 20: Joint Hurriyat Leadership of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik have condemned the attacks on Kashmiris in various parts of India.
A Joint Hurriyat spokesman said that attacks on Kashmiri businessmen, students, tourists and people from other walks of life in various states of the country is distressing and “apparently instigated by the ruling regime.”
“The videos and photographs of Kashmiris being beaten, humiliated, looted, vandalized outside valley will only push more Kashmiri youth to the wall and path of rebellion,” the spokesman said.
Terming these attacks as distressing and horrible, he said that attacks on Kashmiri students including female students in different colleges, universities and institutions across India, is in every respect a dangerous trend that is promoting hatred between humans.
“Kashmiris throughout history have always safeguarded religious harmony and protected all outsiders living or working here and we will Insha Allah stand firm and provide safety, relief and other assistance to every outsider present on our land in future too and uphold our tradition in ensuring the safety of every human being,” the spokesman said.
