‘Martyrs’ week to reiterate pledge to freedom cause’


Kashmiris are observing Martyrs’ Week to pay homage to those who offered their lives in the way of freedom and to reiterate their pledge to continue martyrs’ mission till securing freedom from Indian bondage.

Kashmir Media Service while citing political observers and analysts said, the Martyrs’ Week is reminiscent of the utmost price being paid for free-dom by resilient Kashmiris.

It added the Kashmiris’ freedom movement is alive because of the blood of martyrs and the Kashmiri people will keep on tread-ing the martyrs’ path till complete freedom from India.

The report said, the All Parties Hurriyat Confer-ence (APHC) thanked the people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir for observing shut-down on Burhan Wani’s martyrdom anniversary on July 8 (Thursday).

In this regard, the political ob-servers and analysts said that the strike is a clear message to India that it can’t subdue the Kashmiris’ passion for freedom by resorting to merciless kill-ings in the occupied territory.

They deplored that Indian troops, as part of its killing spree, recently martyred seven Kashmiris in Pulwama, Kulgam and Rajouri districts of the territory.

They said that 1425 Kashmiris have been mar-tyred, 29656 injured in IIOJK since Burhan Wani’s martyrdom on July 8, 2016.

The political observers and analysts maintained, martyrs are the real assets of the Kashmiris’ free-dom movement and that brave Kashmiris will never surrender before Indian military might.

They said that the world rights organizations must take cogni-zance of gross human rights violations by Indian troops in the territory and the UN must intervene to stop genocide and custodial killings in IIOJK.

They pointed out that the Kashmiris want set-tlement of the lingering Kashmir dispute in accor-dance with the UN Kashmir resolutions and aspira-tions of the Kashmiri people so that permanent peace could be established in the region.—KMS
