‘Kashmiris will accept kissing gallows and rotting in jails but won’t surrender before India’


Illegally detained of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Masarrat Aalam Butt, has expressed deep grief and sorrow over the demise of incarcerated senior APHC leader, Altaf Ahmad Shah, in the Indian detention.

Masarrat Aalam Butt in a message from New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail expressed sympathy, solidarity with the bereaved family of Altaf Ahmad Shah and said that the sacrifice of the martyred leader will bring positive results soon. He said the India has become helpless in front of the steadfastness and resolve of the freedom-loving Kashmiris and is resorting to the worst tactics to suppress their freedom struggle.

The APHC Chairman said, “We will accept being hanged and rotting in jails, but we will not surrender to the tyrant and the oppressor India.”

He paid homage to Altaf Ahmad Shah and other Kashmiri martyrs and maintained that their great sacrifices will not be allowed to go waste and their mission will be accomplished at all costs.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (NC) President Farooq Abdullah has refuted the normalcy claim by the Modi-led regime in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and said that the territory “is only seeing worsening of the situation”.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Farooq Abdullah while addressing a party meeting in Srinagar said, “Rather than inching towards promised normalcy, J&K has only seen worsening of the situation. J&K continues to witness political vacuum, unemployment, development deficit, misgovernance. The troubled legacy of 2019 and subsequent enactments paint a bleak picture of the region’s future”.

“The real object of BJP is to push the real representative voices to the background and denude its plural and unique identity. The people of Jammu and Kashmir: Kashmiris, Dogras, Gujjars, and Paharis won’t allow this to happen. The mood and sentiment of the people in Chenab, Pir Panjal and everywhere else is the same. People of J&K, no matter which region, religion and division, they belong to, have made it a point to stand up for their rights,” he said.

He warned that there was a anger against BJP, and its A & B teams across J&K.

“Our cadre has to reach every door step and educate people about the imminent threats to our future. Forces, which we are fighting, are conniving to weaken our political voice by creating divisions among us. They are working day in and day out to divide us on a regional, religious, and cultural basis. The efforts to divide us will receive further increase, as the people are seeking answers from them now,” he added.—KMS
