Hurriyat (G) leader protest against Narbal killing at Lal Chowk
To stop the scheduled sit-in-program of Hurriyat Conference (G) at Lal Chowk against the killing of innocent youth, the police although continuously held the Hurriyat Syed Ali Geelani, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, Raja Mehraj-ud-din and Mohammad Ashraf Laya under house arrest on the Sunday and Hurriyat (G) spokesman was not allowed to come out of the office premises.
“But despite all these restrictions Hurriyat leaders Altaf Ahmad Shah, Advocate Mohammad Shafi Rashi, Zamrooda Habib, Ghulam Mohammad Khan Sopori, Mohammad Shafi Lone, Molvi Bashir Ahmad, Firdous Ahmad Shah, Nisar Hussain Rather, Malik Ghulam Nabi, Amir Hamza, Syed Imtiyaz Hyder, Abdul Rasheed Lone, Khuja Firdous, Mohammad Sayed Bhat, Mudasir Nadvi, Mohammad Imran, Mehraj-ud-din Rabbani, Zaffar Habib, Rameez Raja, Umar Adil Dar, Ishfaq Ahmad Khan, Mukhtar Ahmad, Abdul Rasheed, Sajad Ahmad, Zahoor Ahmad Baigh, Gazi Javaid and dozens of other activists including Tehreek-e-Khaweetin Kashmir succeeded in reaching Lalchowk where they held a protest demonstration led by senior pro-freedom leader Altaf Ahmad Shah against the worst kind of state terrorism going on in Jammu & Kashmir,” a spokesman of the amalgam said in a statement to KNS.
Reacting over the killings, Hurriyat (G) chairman said that the “Goli Nahi Boli” slogan of CM Mufti Sayed has proven “a fraud and within the few days of his government formation, three innocent and unarmed youths were brutally killed by the occupational forces.”
“Mufti Sahab is heading the unified command council and with this respect he is responsible for all the three murders,” Geelani said.
While commenting over the arrest of two police men, he said, “It is the act to pacify the anger of the people and they are not serious about it. It is the record till date that no forces personal involved in the innocent killings and raps have been ever booked or punished for the crime against the humanity.”
While demanding for impartial investigation into the incidents of Tral and Narbal Budgam, Geelani said, “Government probe is not trust worthy in any way because all the government institutions are parts of the same system and a murderer can’t be appointed as a judge.”
He expressed his heartfelt sympathy and condolence with the parents of youth of Narbal and said that the government machinery didn’t allow him to visit Narbal to express condolence personally. “From last many days, I have been confined to my house.”
While terming the statement of Omer Abdullah over the killing of Narbal youth as crocodile tears, he said, “His (Omer’s) hands are soaked with the blood of innocent students and he doesn’t suit criticizing others. Omer Abdullah is directly involved into the 2010 killings. No one has been booked or punished for the killing of more than 125 students so far.”
Geelani recalled the incident of Soura when the father of murdered student Umar Qayoom went to the then CM Omer Abdullah and he was thrown out there without listening to him. He appealed the world community and human rights organization to take serious notice of the grave situations of the Jammu & Kashmir and use their influence to protect the lives of the civilians of this region.
“The disputed state of Jammu & Kashmir is the worst victim of the state terrorism of India due to which the life, property and the honor is in acute danger in this region and if it remained unchecked, it can have serious consequences in the future,” he warned.
Hurriyat (M) leaders protest against Narbal youth’s killing
A delegation of Hurriyat Conference (M) comprising of Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, Muhammad Musadiq Adil, G.N Zaki, Abdul Majid Wani and Ghulam Hassan Mir visited Narbal where the protest demonstration was held against the killing of a young student Suhail Ahmad Sofi a day ago in an incident of firing by the forces, and to protest the recent killing of a youth in Tral, for revocation of black laws like AFSPA and for the release of political rrisoners.
In a statement to KNS a spokesman of the amalgam said Hurriyat delegation participated in the protest. Addressing the participants, senior Hurriyat (M) leader Mukhtar Ahmad Waza strongly condemned the killing of the unarmed youth and accused the coalition government of the state of advancing the agenda of rightwing extremists “by using oppression and brutal force in Kashmir.”
“The government was annihilating the young generation of Kashmiris. APHC is fully committed to its stand of taking the present struggle to its logical conclusion,” Waza said and stressed upon the people that they should not forget the huge sacrifices offered and that they should remain steadfast in their resolve towards the movement.
In the meanwhile on the directions of Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq a delegation comprising of Muhammad Musadiq Adil, Javaid Ahmad Mir, G.N Zaki, Abdul Majid Wani and Ghulam Hassan Mir visited the hunger strike venue of Liberation front chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik in Maisuma Srinagar and expressed solidarity on behalf of Hurriyat (M) with the objective of the hunger strike programme of Malik.
The delegation also took part in the protest demonstration organized by different resistance groups in front of Pratap Park Srinagar to raise a united voice against the excesses committed upon the people of Kashmir.
The spokesman of Hurriyat (M), in the meantime, has strongly condemned the continuous house arrest of Mirwaiz for the second consecutive day, thus depriving him of the freedom to movement and preventing him from participation in essential religious and social events. He termed the action of government as out of “frustration and dictatorial.”
