Srinagar, Sep 25: Hurriyat Conference (M) strongly expressed its resentment against the anti-people policies being employed by the ruling dispensation to crush the people’s struggle through military might.
“Freedom sentiment runs deep in the minds of every citizen of Kashmir and no power can break the resolve of people and the resistance leadership of Kashmir,” Hurriyat (M) said in a statement.
Hurriyat Conference (M) said that the fact remains that Kashmir dispute poses a major threat to peace not for the sub-continent but for the entire south Asia and accepting the ground realities and taking concrete steps to resolve the vexed dispute will result in the peaceful atmosphere in the south Asian region.
It said permanent peace can only be achieved after finding a dignified solution to the Kashmir dispute in accordance to the wishes of people.
Hurriyat (M) paid rich tributes to two armed youth killed in Sopore Tujjer gun battle stating that youth are spilling their hot blood only to free Kashmir from the clutches of forcible control and their sacrifices will always be remembered as they are the great assets of our nation.” People and the resistance leadership are committed to safeguard the blood of martyrs and is duty bound to take the mission of martyrs to its logical end.”
Hurriyat Conference (M) strongly condemned the fresh wave of CASOs in Central Kashmir’s Charar-e-Sharief, and dozens of villages in Pulwama that include Lasipora, Badibagh, Naman, Kakapora and Pulwama, where people were asked to come out their homes and kept under open sky for hours together. The Hurriyat termed the arrest of youth, thrashing inmates, and vandalising properties, terming it as an ultimate highhandedness and brazen violation of human rights.
Hurriyat (M) expressed grief over the death of five members of a family in Doda due to landslides and extended sympathy and solidarity to the bereaved family on behalf of the APHC chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
