Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) of Kashmir Saturday appealed people to offer absentia prayers in mosques, Khankhas and Imam Baras on Sunday for “martyrs and also pray for the freedom of Kashmir.”
The JRL, comprised of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhmmmad Yasin Malik, (who is currently under detention) in a statement denounced the policy of “killing and repression adopted by Indian authorities and said that the ongoing bloodshed at the hands of government forces amounts to systematic genocide of Kashmiris.”
While cautioning that attempt by authorities through use of “brute force and coercion to bent people of Kashmir” on their knees and force them to give up their genuine struggle, “nurtured by the sacrifices of lakhs of martyrs, will only further deteriorate the already deteriorated situation on the ground.”
Six militants were killed in a brief gunfight on Saturday in Tral area of Pulwama district of South Kashmir. Earlier, last week seven civilians were also killed during a gunfight in which three militants had been killed too.
The JRL said that it is the dictatorship and arrogance of Indian government and its reluctance to engage in a peaceful resolution of Kashmir dispute which is responsible for killing of the Kashmiris.
