In­dia can­not sup­press lib­er­a­tion move­ment: Mir­waiz

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRINAGAR—The Chair­man of his own Hur­riyet fo­rum, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, has said that In­dia can­not sup­press the Kash­miris’ on­go­ing lib­er­a­tion move­ment by putting curbs on the move­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties of Hur­riyet lead­ers.

Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, who is un­der house ar­rest in Srinagar, in a state­ment said that such cheap tac­tics would never work as Kash­mir was an in­ter­na­tion­ally rec­og­nized dis­pute and peo­ple could not be forced to give up their just strug­gle through use of op­pres­sive and sup­pres­sive mea­sures against them.He said that the PDP-BJP regime was de­lib­er­ately plac­ing curbs on the peace­ful ac­tiv­i­ties of Hur­riyet lead­er­ship and the free­dom-lov­ing peo­ple of Kash­mir but it would not suc­ceed in its ne­far­i­ous de­signs in the ter­ri­tory.

The Mir­waiz strongly con­demned the con­tin­ued house ar­rest and il­le­gal de­ten­tion of the All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence Chair­man, Syed Ali Gi­lani and the Chief of Jammu and Kash­mir Lib­er­a­tion Front Chair­man, Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik. He said that these tac­tics would not yield any re­sults and would in fact make the Hur­riyet lead­er­ship and re­sis­tance move­ment stronger.

He also de­manded an im­par­tial probe into the mys­te­ri­ous killing of Mu­dasir Ah­mad Rather, a stu­dent from Simthan area of Bi­jbe­hara who was study­ing at Chandi­garh. “Pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity to Kash­miri stu­dents study­ing in dif­fer­ent states of In­dia is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the re­spec­tive state gov­ern­ments,” he said.

The Mir­waiz talked to the fa­ther of the de­ceased youth over phone and ex­pressed sol­i­dar­ity with him. Mean­while, Hur­riyet leader, Mukhtar Ah­mad Waza, vis­ited Simthan and ex­pressed con­do­lences with the be­reaved fam­ily.—KMS
