Will hit streets if anti-Kashmir policies not stopped: Hurriyat (M)


Srinagar, Oct 26: Hurriyat Conference (M) has strongly denounced the imposition of undeclared curfew in various parts of south Kashmir and Srinagar, sealing of Jamia Masjid and barring congregational Friday prayers for the 16th Friday this year and third in a row.

A Hurriyat (M) spokesperson in a statement issued strongly protested the caging of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq at his Nigeen residence and said that “these oppressive measures as the worst form of dictatorial approach” on part of the J&K government.

He said that “anti-Kashmir” regime doesn’t only trample the social and political rights of people, but also the religious rights as well. “If these anti-people policies continue to remain in place, people will be left with no option other than to hit the streets in protest,” he said.

The amalgam paid glowing tributes to eight armed youth killed in various gunfights across Kashmir over the past 24 hours, saying that the “worst ever state terrorism” in on a full display under which Kashmiri youth are selectively killed.

Everyday bloodbath in Kashmir is the direct outcome of the lingering Kashmir dispute and Delhi’s “stubborn and military” approach, the Hurriyat (M) said.

Meanwhile, the amalgam has urged people to observe October 27 as the ‘black day in the history of Kashmir’ as “on the same day, lakhs of Indian troops landed on Kashmir soil to occupy the land”.

Meanwhile, a massive protest rally was taken out at Eidgah after Friday prayers against the “ultimate oppression” unleashed in the past one month.

On the call of Joint Hurriyat, the amalgam said that massive rallies were held in various parts of Kashmir after Friday prayers.

At Eidgah, the protest was led by senior amalgam leader Muhammad Shafi Khan, Mushtaq Sofi, Sahil War, Farooq Ahmed Saudagar, Muhammad Yousuf Bhat and others, the statement said.
