Mirwaiz pays rich tributes to Qazi Nisar
Condemns city night raids
Mehbooba Mufti is advocating this “terrorist” force in the state assembly that she had no reason or proposal for disbanding it.
He said the VDC is actually an armed force ‘created on the directions of the home ministry with only purpose to keep a strict vigil on the activities of the Jammu Muslims and if need arises they can also be used for executing the Muslims of the region.’
Geelani expressed surprise over the need of VDCs “if there are already more than 10 lakh military and paramilitary forces and about one lakh state police deployed in small region of Jammu & Kashmir.” He said that there is no logic in the government claims that this force has been created to counter the armed struggle of Jammu & Kashmir.
Reiterating his demand for disbanding and disarming VDCs, Hurriyat (G) Chairman said VDCs in Jammu & Kashmir are the “worst face of state terrorism.”—RK SRINAGAR—New Delhi unambiguously threatened to stop supply of subsidized ration to Jammu and Kashmir if the National Food Security Act (NFSA) is not implemented in the state, the J&K Government disclosed in the Legislative Assembly on Sunday.
In a written reply to cut motion of National Conference legislator Ali Muhammad Sagar, Minister for Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution department, Choudary Zulfikar Ali, spilled the beans on how the State Government had to fall in line with New Delhi’s directive on the NFSA.

The Mirwaiz said Dr Qazi Nisar had been striving for the unity among groups of various schools of thought and worked for the resistance movement which cannot be forgotten. Since 1990, under a well-planned conspiracy, top religious and political leadership of Kashmir was martyred from timeto-time with the design to eliminate the Kashmiri resistance leadership and make it leaderless,” the Mirwaiz said.
“However, these killings did not dampen the resolve of the leadership which continued to carry forward the resistance movement,” he said.
Condemning the action of government forces during which nocturnal raids were carried out to arrest large number of youth in Old City of Srinagar, the Mirwaiz said that government forces were orchestrating state sponsored terrorism by carrying out such arrests which has turned the lives of locals miserable. He said the oppression of government forces have crossed all limits which has terrorized the population.
Mirwaiz termed these actions as fascist and cruel. He said brutal suppressive measures were being used against the Hurriyat leadership, activists and youth of Kashmir. Mirwaiz further said that these tactics, however, were not going to deter the people or leadership of Kashmir.
