Resistance leaders call for shutdown on Monday


JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik has called for a complete shutdown against the “planned genocide of Kashmiri youth by the Indian State” on Tomorrow, 25 June.

In a joint statement issued, JRL has expressed serious concern over the re-starting of operation All-Out and CASOS with “full vengeance against the people of Kashmir especially in South Kashmir which has resulted in the killing of four innocent civilians in the firing of trigger-happy forces.”

JRL also said that the operation all out was restarted by forces and CASO in South Kashmir villages has resulted in harassment of people of all ages.

The leadership added that they can’t act as mute spectators over the brutal killings of unarmed protesters as since Eid ul Fitr four innocent people including the father of two minor siblings were killed by the trigger-happy forces.

Strongly condemning the killing of four civilians who were killed in forces firing since June 16 include Aijaz Ahmed Bhat of Akhiran, Nowpora, elderly Muhammad Yousuf Rather OF Srigufwara, Shahid Nazir of Sirhama who was fired at his head, and the latest Yawar Nazir of Gassipora Qaimoh who died today in indiscriminate firing, JRL said that more than 50 people were also left seriously injured while many of them with bullets and lethal pellet injuries.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
