Youths’ sacrifice a huge responsibility on our shoulders: Sehrai
Srinagar, Oct 22: Tehreek- e- Hurriyat Chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai Monday said the sacrifices of youth in Kashmir places a huge responsibility on people’s shoulders.
In a statement, Sehrai said that “no power or repression” can break the resolve of “freedom-loving” Kashmiris.
Sehrai, while referring to the Sunday’s killings in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district, said it was a “brazen display of human genocide”.
“The martyrdom of these youth has put a huge responsibility on our shoulders and it is our responsibility to honour these sacrifices and take the movement to its ongoing resistance movement to its logical end,” Sehrai, whose own son joined the militant ranks in March, said in the statement.
In a statement issued here this afternoon, Sehrai said that under a “well-planned conspiracy”, the forces in absence of any accountability, have decided to go for a full-fledged war against people of Kashmir.
“The government forces have failed to suppress the Kashmiris and are now using inhuman and brazen tactics to suppress their resolve. However, the sacrifices rendered by the people won’t go waste,” he said.
Paying tributes to the people killed in Kulgam, Sehrai said that people of Kashmir were associated with a great and sacred cause and the repressive measures won’t cow-down people or resistance leadership into a submission.
Sehrai in a statement also castigated the authorities for placing resistance leadership under frequent house detention and lodging many others under preventive custody, launching search and cordon operations in southern districts of Kashmir, harassing and arresting youth and strongly condemned the house arrest of Tehreek e hurriyat leader Mohammad Ashraf Laya.
Sehrai in a statement asked that “how long will world community maintain silence over the genocide of Kashmiris.”
According to the statement, he said, “The government forces have failed to suppress the Kashmiris and are now using inhuman and brazen tactics to suppress their resolve.”
He questioned over the silence maintained by the world community and international human rights organizations, saying that “why don’t they break their silence over the human rights violation in Kashmir.”
“The sacrifices rendered by the people won’t go waste,” said Sehrai in a statement.
