Beerwah area of the ter­ri­tory as com­mu­nal mind­set. Shab­bir Ahmed Shah, who is un­der house ar­rest in Sri­na­gar, in a state­ment said that the group was hell bent upon cre- at­ing com­mu­nal dishar­mony in the oc­cu­pied ter­ri­tory, KMS re­ported.

He said that the com­mu­nal forces like Ab­hi­navgupta She­shadri Samiti, in the garb of start­ing the so-called ya­tra, wanted to turn Jammu and Kash­mir into a bat­tle­field be­tween the Mus­lim and Hindu com­mu­ni­ties.—APP SRI­NA­GAR—In oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, top Hur­riyet lead­ers Syed Ali Gi­lani, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq and Muham­mad Yasin Malik have said that peaceful protests will con­tinue till India gives up its anti-Kash­mir plans in the ter­ri­tory.

The lead­ers in their joint state­ment is­sued in Sri­na­gar gave a joint call for protests against the con­struc­tion of sep­a­rate colonies for Kash­miri Pan­dits and In­dian sol­diers and Delhi’s so-called In­dus­trial Pol­icy in the ter­ri­tory.

The lead­ers termed the state­ments by PDP-BJP regime over these se­ri­ous is­sues as vague, am­bigu­ous and con­fus­ing. They urged Imams of all Masajid to in­form peo­ple about the se­ri­ous con­se­quences of the In­dian moves in their ser­mons on Fri­day (to­mor­row).The state­ment said that a sem­i­nar would be or­ga­nized on Sun­day, June 12, 2016, at Hy­der­pora to cre­ate aware­ness about the “anti-Kash­mir plans” of the In­dian gov­ern­ment while a sym­bolic sit-in protest has been called to be ob­served on Wed­nes­day June 15. They ap­pealed to the peo­ple to make the joint protest pro­grammes a suc­cess.

Con­demn­ing curbs on the move­ment of re­sis­tance lead­er­ship and their ha­rass­ment, con­tin­ued ar­rest of Jammu Kash­mir Lib­er­a­tion Front Chair­man, Muham­mad Yasin Malik, house ar­rest of Syed Ali Gi­lani and other re­sis­tance lead­ers, de­ten­tions and house ar­rests of re­sis­tance ac­tivists and free­dom-lov­ing peo­ple, the state­ment said these mea­sures could not force the re­sis­tance lead­er­ship and peo­ple to give up their strug­gle for right to self-de­ter­mi­na­tion.

The All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence Chair­man, Syed Ali Gi­lani, said that the state­ments of the pup­pet au­thor­i­ties in and out­side the so-called Assem­bly are am­bigu­ous and doubt­ful. He pointed out that the pol­i­cy­mak­ers of New Delhi were firm over their de­ci­sion but due to pres­sure of the pub­lic re­sent­ment, the pup­pet regime was fol­low­ing a vague ap­proach in this re­gard. He main­tained that un­til the pro­posal of Pan­dit and sol­dier colonies was aban­doned, the profree­dom lead­er­ship would con­tinue to raise its voice in ev­ery pos­si­ble way and cre­ate a pub­lic con­sen­sus. The spokesman of the Hur­riyet fo­rum led by Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, said that anti-Kash­miri poli­cies liked sol­dier colonies, town­ships for Kash­miri Pan­dits and the new In­dus­trial Pol­icy were wrought with alarm­ing con­se­quences and the re­sis­tance lead­er­ship would not stay silent over these is­sues.

“Plans were be­ing made to harm the col­lec­tive in­ter­ests of the peo­ple which would be strongly op­posed to en­sure that the in­ter­ests of peo­ple are not harmed,” he said. —KMS
