Top Hur­riyet lead­er­ship calls for protests on Fri­day

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

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
