Two more youth killed
Srinagar—Indian troops, in their fresh act of state terrorism, martyred two Kashmiri youth in Bandipore district, Tuesday. Observers say India has gone berserk in Kashmir after freedom lovers sent rolling Indian occupation across the jungles in the State. Indian war gimmicks have failed totally painting pail the faces of mercenaries.
The troops killed the youth during a siege and search operation at Bonikhan in Hajin area of the district. An Indian police officer claimed that the youth were killed during an encounter with the troops. As the news about killing of the youth spread, hundreds of people assembled at Hajin Chowk and held forceful anti-India and pro-freedom protests. They demanded the bodies of the martyred youth.
Meanwhile, the prolonged shutdown continued in the Kashmir Valley against the civilian killings and other brutalities of Indian police and troops in the territory.
The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, addressing a public gathering in Tral said that unity and steadfastness were two big achievements of the ongoing resistance movement in the territory. He added that the people who sacrificed their lives were real heroes, and pledged to take forward the mission of the martyrs to its logical conclusion, against all odds.
Senior APHC leader, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi addressing a public meeting in Badgam urged them to follow the protest calendar issued by the joint resistance leadership. He said that there was no way to achieve the goal without continued resistance.
Hurriyet leaders including Yasmeen Raja, Farooq Ahmed Tawheedi, Muhammad Yousuf Mir and a delegation of Jammu and Kashmir Salvation movement visited the family of martyred Rayees Ahmad Dar at Kakapora in Pulwama district. Indian troops recently killed him during a violent military operation in the area.
On the other hand, Hurriyet leaders including Yasmeen Raja, Farida Bahenji, Bilal Siddiqui, Zafar Akbar Butt, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Imtiyaz Ahmed Reshi and Ghulam Nabi War in their statements expressed deep grief and sorrow over the sad demise of former mujahid commander, Riyaz Ahmed Dar alias Majaz Kashmiri.
