People urged to boycott sham polls



In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leader Shabbir Ahmed Dar has urged the freedom-loving people of Kashmir to stay away from so-called coming parliamentary elections because boycotting these will be serving the cause of freedom and showing respect to the huge and unparallel sacrifices of great martyrs.
Shabbir Ahmed Dar in a statement issued in Srinagar said that it was an exercise in futility as it did not serve any body’s cause.
He said, “The sacrifices, discipline and steadfastness exhibited by all the Kashmiris is the manifestation of our desire and design to get complete freedom from foreign occupation.”
He said India must now stop parroting about Kashmir being its integral part and face the reality. The Indian attitude on Kashmir is based on emotions rather than information, he added.—KMS
