JKLF said that “after choking every little space on peaceful political resistance, India and its supporters are pushing our highly educated and passionate youth towards the path of ultimate sacrifice.”
“After scholar Manan Bashir Wani another scholar Doctor Sabzar has been martyred by Indians. These martyrs represent the soul our struggle for freedom and self determination and this nation is in all means indebted to them,” he said.
“A nation whose sons are being massacred by tyrants cannot tolerate tyranny and illegal occupation silently and do anything that can strengthen the blood soaked hands of killers and murderers,” he said, adding that “the nation of Jammu Kashmir will always remember and cherish these sacrifices and continue the struggle for freedom till the achievement of the sacred goal.”
