SRI­NA­GAR—In oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, the pup­pet au­thor­i­ties have launched a mas­sive crack­down on pro-free­dom lead­ers to pre­vent a joint sem­i­nar to be held at Hy­der­pora in Sri­na­gar, tomorrow.

Hold­ing of the sem­i­nar has been an­nounced by the All Par­ties Hur­riyet Con­fer­ence, the fo­rum led by Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq and the Jammu and Kash­mir Lib­er­a­tion Front to cre­ate aware­ness about the anti-Kash­mir poli­cies of the In­dian gov­ern­ment.

The sem­i­nar is part of the joint protest pro­grammes an­nounced by the top Hur­riyet lead­ers, Syed Ali Gi­lani, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq and Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik, against In­dia’s plans to con­struct sep­a­rate colonies for Kash­miri Pan­dits and In­dian sol­diers, ha­rass­ment of Mus­lims in Jammu and Delhi’s new in­dus­trial pol­icy in the ter­ri­tory. Un­der the joint pro­gramme, a sit-in protest will also be held at Lal Chowk in Sri­na­gar on Wednesday.The oc- cu­pa­tion au­thor­i­ties have put Hur­riyet lead­ers in­clud­ing Syed Ali Gi­lani, Shab­bir Ahmed Shah, Peer be­hind the bars. In­dian po­lice is con­tin­u­ing raids on the res­i­dences of other pro-free­dom lead­ers and ac­tivists. that Me­hbooba Mufti-led pup­pet regime had waged a war against the Hur­riyet lead­er­ship. He ap­pealed to the world hu­man rights or­ga­ni­za­tions to take cog­nizance of the gross hu­man rights vi­o­la­tions by In­dia in the ter­ri­tory and use their in­flu­ence in lift­ing curbs on the po­lit­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties of profree­dom peo­ple. Mean­while, Hur­riyet lead­ers in­clud­ing Muham­mad Yousuf Naqash, Imtiyaz Ah­mad Reshi and Salim Zar­gar vis­ited Mar­tyrs’ Grave­yard in Sri­na­gar, to­day, and paid rich tributes to Tu­fail Mat­too on his 6th mar­tyr­dom an­niver­sary. Tu­fail Mat­too, a stu­dent of 12th class, was killed by In­dian po­lice in Sri­na­gar on this day in 2010. His killing had trig­gered mas­sive an­tiIn­dia de­mon­stra­tions in the ter­ri­tory and within a few months over 120 peo­ple were mar­tyred in the use of ex­ces­sive force by In­dian forces’ per­son­nel on de­mon­stra­tions.—KMS
