In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred two Kashmiri youth in Srinagar city, to-day.
The youth identified as Irfan and Bilal Ahmad were killed inside a house destroyed by the troops with chemical explosives during a cordon and search operation in Danmar Eidgah area of the city. The occupation authorities suspended internet ser-vices in several areas in the city.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference Assistant Secretary General, Khawaja Firdous Wani, in a press release issued in Srinagar expressed his deep concern over the plight of illegally detained Hurri-yat leaders and activists, languishing in different jails of India and IIOJK.
Senior Hurriyat leader, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, in a statement issued in Srinagar ap-pealed to the International Committee of Red Cross and other human rights organizations to put pressure on India to release all illegally detained Kashmiri Hurriyat leaders and activists before Eid-ul-Azha.
Delegations of Jammu Kashmir Political Resis-tance Movement and Jammu and Kashmir Social and Justice League visited Sambora area of Pul-wama and paid rich tributes to the youth recently martyred by Indian troops.
Meanwhile, the occupation authorities did not allow Juma congregational prayers in main worship places, including historic Jamia Masjid and Hazrat-bal Shrine even as the Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema had urged them to allow prayers in shrines, Jamia Masjids and other holy places in IIOJK from today.
The MMU, an amalgam of over 20 religious organi-zations, headed by incarcerated Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has urged the authorities to allow Friday and other prayers in shrines and mosques before the Eid-ul-Azha.
The authorities have banned the sacrifice of animals during the upcoming Islamic festival Eid al-Adha in a ruling that is likely to further stoke anti-India anger in the disputed Muslim-majority region.
An order issued on Thursday citing animal welfare laws said the “illegal killing/sacrifices of cows/calves, camels & other animals” must be stopped.
The High Court of IIOJK quashing the illegal detention under draconian law, Public Safety Act, of three Kashmiri youth directed the authorities to release them forthwith.
A report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, maintained that Indian farmers are deter-mined to carry on their agitation against three con-tentious farm laws introduced by Modi-led fascist government in September last year. It said, the con-tentious laws have sparked one of India’s biggest protests in the country.
Intensifying their stir, the report said, the farmers have announced to hold protests outside the Indian Parliament throughout monsoon session starting from July 19 July to Au-gust 13.
It added that more than 300,000 farmers have committed suicide in India, over the last 20 years due to the anti-agriculture policies of the gov-ernment.
In the meantime, Haryana police booked over 100 farmers under draconian sedition law on the charges of attacking the official vehicle of BJP politician and Deputy Speaker Ranbir Gangwa in Sirsa district few days ago during the protest against farm laws.—KMS
