Complete shutdown was observed on Thursday and forceful demonstrations were held on Friday to protest against India’s plans to construct separate colonies for retired Indian soldiers and Kashmiri Pandits, harassment of Jammu Muslims and Delhi’s so-called Industrial Policy in Kashmir. Call for the shutdown and protests was jointly given by top Hurriyet leaders, Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.
Syed Ali Geelani in a statement in Srinagar said that the protest programs against the Indian government’s machinations would continue until it announced to shun the ideas of establishing separate colonies for Pandits, retired army men and the new industrial policy and assured the Kashmiri people in this regard.
He said that the silence of the puppet administration on these issues was intriguing and indicated that it had entered into a deal with RSS to implement its agenda in the territory.
The APHC Chairman said, “Shutdown or the protest programs are not our hobbies, the Government of India is at war with our existence, our national integrity and our Muslim identity and we can’t sit silently in this regard. We will give every drop of our blood to protect the Muslim identity of Jammu and Kashmir and will resist every move which is aimed to change the demographic character of the territory.”
Syed Ali Geelani appealed to the people to remain prepared. “The present situation demands that we shall resist the aggression with united face as it is the matter of our existence and this time our silence will prove disastrous in future. So we have to follow the programs of the leadership in this regard,” he added.
