Intimidation can’t break Kashmiris’ resolve: Mirwaiz forum


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has condemned the ongoing violent cordon and search operations to harass the people saying that intimidation and repression can in no way breach the will of the people for freedom.

The forum in a statement issued in Srinagar said the Kashmiris pay glorious tributes to Shaheed Bur-han Muzaffar Wani in connection with his 5th martyrdom anniversary and are committed for seeking right to self-determination and resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

“The conditions of Kashmiri detainees in differ-ent jails across India are pathetic. NGOs particularly ICRC should visit the jails to save the humanity,” it stressed.

The Hurriyat forum demanded immediate release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq from house deten-tion, who is in continued arbitrary house detention since August 05, 2019.

The Chairman of People’s Political Party (PPP), Engineer Hilal Ahmad War in a statement urged the people of Jammu and Kashmir to observe a com-plete shutdown on July 8 and 13 to pay homage to Burhan Muzaffar Wani and martyrs of 1931. He paid glowing tributes to Burhan Muzaffar Wani and his associates.

Engineer Hilal said, “Burhan had struck terror in the hearts and minds of the occupiers and the Kashmiri nation salutes him and will re-member him always.”

The Jammu Kashmir Mass Movement Secretary Information, Shabir Ahmed in a statement issued in Srinagar while urging the international community to increase its efforts for settlement of the Kashmir dispute as per UN Security Council resolutions warned that the unresolved dispute poses a great threat to the global peace.

He said the United Na-tions and the world powers have either forgotten the Kashmir dispute or they are deliberately ignoring it even though it is one of the oldest unresolved dis-putes on the agenda of the United Nations because of India’s traditional bigotry.

He said the Kashmir dispute still poses a great threat to the world peace as more than one hundred thousand Kashmiris have fallen victim to India’s ruthless and brutal policy, which is in vogue since decades.

Meanwhile, Fatima bint Asad, Chairperson of the Social Justice League along with a delegation went to Shaheed Nisar Ahmed Lone’s house to express solidarity with the family.

He was martyred in Rajpura area of Pulwama, recently. The delega-tion included party leader Zainab bint Hussain and other workers.

Fatima bint Asad on the occasion said that India should understand that the spirit of freedom could not be eradicated by cruel tactics.
