All social sects attend JKLF Iftar party
Srinagar—In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) organized an Iftaar party at Bund in Srinagar on Saturday.
The Iftaar party was attended among others by the Chairman of Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. The All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, could not participate in the Iftaar due to continued house arrest.
Representatives of various religious parties, civil society and trade bodies besides journalists and human rights activists also participated in the function. Representatives of Pandit and Sikh bodies and other minorities also attended the function. About 2,000 people participated in the event.
Addressing the participants, the JKLF Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, appealed to the people to remain cautious about the anti-Kashmir plans of RSS-backed PDP-BJP puppet regime. He said that the APHC, JLKF and the Hurriyet forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq would jointly fight against the anti-Kashmir policies.
“We won’t shy away from sacrificing our lives if it comes to that,” he said while condemning the house arrest of the APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani. He said that Syed Ali Gilani, who is suffering from multiple ailments, was not being allowed to perform his religious duties and the puppet authorities stopped him from attending this iftaar as well.
On the occasion, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq emphasized on the unity among the Muslim Ummah. He condemned the ongoing oppression, nocturnal raids, arrests, search operations, curbs and restrictions by India in occupied Kashmir. He reiterated that nobody would be allowed to change the demographic composition of the occupied territory.
Leaders of pro-freedom groups, religious organizations and intellectuals who spoke at the Iftaar party hailed the joint protest programs being announced by the Hurriyet leadership. They said that it would benefit Kashmir cause and deter the puppet regime from implementing its anti-Kashmir policies such as setting up of colonies for retired Indian soldiers, separate townships for Kashmiri Pandits and the so-called Industrial Policy.—KMS
