A group of stone throwers calling itself, Sangbaaz (Stone Pelter’s) Force has extended its support to Mutahida Majlise Mashawrat (MMM)- the joint forum of separatist parties in Kashmir, saying the force was committed to follow the programs being issued by the joint forum.


A person identifying himself as Abu Huzaifa, spokesman of the force, told a news agency over phone on Tuesday that the youth were ready to offer any kind of sacrifices for the Kashmir cause and urged MMM leadership to revisit the protest calendar in the next 48 hours.

The spokesman also appealed MMM leadership to include the ‘quit Kashmir’ and ‘boycotting of Made in India products’ in their agenda.

Earlier, in December, a  7 page statement was sent to the media organisations of valley, by an organisation calling itself Kashmir Sangbaz League (KSL) saying that if Afzal Guru was hanged, they will start the wide spread attacks on forces’ installations and key government buildings.

The group had given name of a number of places, claiming to be attacked in the Valley, like Secretariat and Radio Stations besides state police’s installations. “Lack of resources has forced us to adopt stone-pelting as a weapon of war. We have been fighting with mere stones launched by tender hands and fearless hearts,” read the statement, written under the letter-head of KSL with sketch of a masked stone-throwing youth.

  1. Keep them coming, o bearers of hateful hearts. India did not budge when your forefaters used grenades and bullets. India was undeterred when some of you psychotic killers lew themselves up in crowds. India will shrug off your stones too. Because your movement is wrong. Your interpretation of Islam is blasphemous. No prophet ever asked Muslims to break away from non Muslims. Islam does not recognise teritorial boundaries and nor does any other religion. As long as terrorists keep using J&K issue to incite Jihadi passions, India will need no other justification to respond with strength.

    Wake up and smell the coffee. It is halaal!

  2. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks.See
