The leaders of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir chapter have paid glowing tributes to senior APHC leader Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai on his second martyrdom anniversary, today.
Senior APHC leader, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai died in Indian police custody in Jammu on May 5, 2021.
They said that his saying “As long as India’s illegal occupation of the territory continues, the people of Kashmir have the right to resist at all levels (including militancy) against the occupying power” is worthy of being written in golden letters.
The Hurriyat leaders mentioned the custodial killing of Ashraf Sehrai and said this cruelty has exposed the ugly face of India to the world and the people of Kashmir have also created a new chapter of sacrifices in the history of the freedom movement.
Reiterating their determination to continue the struggle till the last drop of their blood, they said the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has pledged to take the Kashmir freedom movement to its logical conclusion at all costs.
Condemning the criminal silence of the international community on Indian atrocities in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Hurriyat leaders said this behavior certainly gives encouragement to the occupying power, but these atrocities could not force the Kashmiri people to surrender.
Referring to the statements of the Pakistan government, the Azad Jammu and Kashmir government and the Chief of Army Staff of Pakistan regarding Kashmir, the leaders said these statements give new courage.—INP
