In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League (JKPL), Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, has said that India and its puppet regime are suppressing the Kashmiris’ ongoing freedom movement through use of brute force.
Mukhtar Ahmad Waza along with a party delegation visited the house of a victim of Indian brutalities, Sameer Ahmad Butt, at Kotegund Dooru in Islamabad district. Sameer was ruthlessly tortured by Indian police last week and after release was admitted by his family in a hospital in Srinagar where he succumbed to his injuries.
Addressing a gathering on the occasion, Mukhtar Waza, said India’s so-called democracy believes in suppressing people’s voices by jailing, torturing and oppressing them. He, however, maintained that India would never succeed to intimidate the Kashmiris into submission and they would continue their ongoing liberation movement till it reached its logical conclusion.
He said that the permanent peace in South Asia would remain a dream till the settlement of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
The delegation included Nisar Ahmed Rathar, Shujaat-ul-Islam, Zahoor Ahmad, Yawar Ahmad, Aajaz Ahmad and Tahir Ahmad.
APHC leader and the Chairperson of Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement, Farida Bahenji, in a statement in Srinagar expressed serious concern over the stepped up Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir. She said that Indian brutalities could not suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom sentiment and they would continue their struggle till complete success.—KMS
