Kashmiris, sympathizers in UK to hold demos against Altaf Shah’s custodial murder on Friday


The Kashmiris and their sympathizers in the UK will hold demonstrations against custodial murder of Altaf Ahmad Shah on Friday.

A statement released by Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK on Wednesday called on allies and supporters of Kashmiri freedom movement to join the protest demonstrations after congregational Friday prayers in Birmingham.

“It is a public call on all freedom and justice-loving people to come and protest Indian highhandedness which the fascist regime in New Delhi is inflicting on innocent Kashmiris,” said Fahim Kayani, leader of Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK.

He said funeral prayers in absentia will also be held for Shaheed Altaf Ahmad Shah soon after the Namaz.

66-year-old Shah attained martyrdom at a hospital in New Delhi on the night of October 10 where he was under custody of India. Shah was detained in infamous Tihar jail since 2017 under trumped up charges.—KMS
