Top Hurriyet leadership calls for protests on Friday
SRINAGAR—In occupied Kashmir, the top Hurriyet leaders, Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, have called for peaceful protests on Friday against India’s antiKashmir designs.
The leaders in a joint programme issued after consultation called for hoisting of black flags after Juma prayers to protest against Indian plans of to construct separate colonies for retired Indian soldiers and Kashmiri Pandits, harassment of Jammu Muslims and Delhi’s so-called Industrial Policy in Kashmir. They have appealed to the people to make the protest programme a success.
Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in their statements issued in Srinagar, today, said that the puppet authorities in an insensible way have identified the lands in Budgam, Baramulla and Bandipora districts for the purpose of establishing the colonies for Pandit and Indian soldiers. They said that the puppet regime was trying to keep the public in dark about the issue and was spreading lies in this regard.
They warned that if Mehbooba Mufti-led regime did not stop to follow the RSS agendas in occupied Kashmir and did not shun these plans, the pro- freedom leadership would jointly start a protest campaign against this and would resist the aggressive policies of the Sangh Parivar at all costs.
Syed Ali Gilani strongly condemned the continued imprisonment of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Mohammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Altaf Ahmad Shah, Ayaz Akbar and Yasmeen Raja for the past 7 days.
He said that Mehbooba Mufti and her RSS colleagues were trapped in a misunderstanding that by caging the pro-freedom leadership.—KMS
