Kashmiris destined to win their rightful struggle: Mirwaiz
Srinagar—In occupied Kashmir, the Hurriyet forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has expressed satisfaction over the holding of huge public gatherings in every nook and corner of the territory by the people despite the continued curfew and other restrictions by the puppet authorities.
The forum spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that no power of the world could stop the Kashmiri people from securing their right to self-determination. He said that the day is not far when Kashmiris would get rid of Indian bondage.
The spokesman condemned the killing of teenager, Nasir Shafi, by Indian forces in Srinagar last night and paid glowing tributes to him. He said that killing, arrest and harassment could not weaken the freedom sentiment of the Kashmiri people.
The spokesman also condemned India for denying permission to the UN team to visit occupied Kashmir to take stock of the human rights violations by Indian forces in the territory. He said that the people of Kashmir had been deprived of all kinds of political, social and religious rights and the world community and the international human rights organizations should take cognizance of the matter.
The spokesman said that over 100 innocent Kashmiris had been killed and thousands injured while hundreds had been maimed and blinded due to the use of brute force on peaceful demonstrations by Indian forces since July 8 this year.
He also strongly condemned the illegal detention of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and other Hurriyet leaders and activists terming the action as frustration of the authorities.—KMS
