shouted pro-free­dom, pro-Pak­istan and anti-In­dia slo­gans. Pak­istani flags were waved dur­ing the protests. The protests were led by Hur­riyet lead­ers in­clud­ing Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, Muham­mad Ashraf Sehrai, Ad­vo­cate Bashir Ahmed Butt, Altaf Ahmed Shah, Peer Sai­ful­lah, Noor Muham­mad Kal­wal, Muham­mad Shafi Reshi, Zam­ruda Habib, Gulzar Ahmed Gulzar, Molvi Bashir Ahmed and Muham­mad Ah­san Un­too.

In­dian po­lice fired teargas shells and pal­lets to dis­perse the demon­stra­tors in Sri­na­gar, So­pore, Islamabad, Kul­gam and at other places in­jur­ing sev­eral peo­ple. The po­lice also ar­rested dozens of Hur­riyet lead­ers and ac­tivists af­ter sub­ject­ing them to tor­ture.

The po­lice took into cus­tody the Jammu and Kash­mir Lib­er­a­tion Front Chair­man, Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik, along with sev­eral party mem­bers when he was go­ing to Islamabad to ad­dress an elec­tion boy­cott rally in the town. The Islamabad con­stituency is go­ing for by-elec­tions on 22nd June.

Syed Ali Gi­lani, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq and Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik have said that the so-called rulers were hood­wink­ing the peo­ple on New Delhi’s con­spir­a­to­rial plots in the ter­ri­tory. They said that protests would con­tinue till In­dian gov­ern­ment to­tally gave up its anti-Kash­mir ideas.

Mean­while, In­dian troops, in their fresh act of state ter­ror­ism, mar­tyred two more youth dur­ing a siege and search op­er­a­tion in Bo­mai area So­pore town, to­day. The op­er­a­tion was go­ing on till re­ports last came in. Mas­sive protests rocked the area af­ter the killings and the youth fought pitched bat­tles with In­dian forces’ per­son­nel.

In Geneva, Kash­miri rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Altaf Hus­sain Wani, ad­dress­ing an event held on the side­lines of the 32nd ses­sion of the UN Hu­man Rights Coun­cil said that In­dia was hell bent upon chang­ing the de­mo­graphic com­po­si­tion of oc­cu­pied Kash­mir by set­tling non-state sub­jects in the ter­ri­tory un­der dif­fer­ent garbs.—KMS
