SRINAGAR: Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) on Saturday termed it “intolerable” the desecration of martyrs’ graveyard at Kareemabad, Pulwama by Indian forces on Friday.
In a statement issued here, a DFP spokesperson said it supports the demand of Pulwama people that strict action must be taken against the forces involved in desecration of the martyrs’ graveyard.
“The martyrs’ graves are the symbols of our freedom movement and any kind of disrespect to these is intolerable. We can’t remain silent on such acts by the inhuman occupational forces,” the spokesperson said.
He said Indian forces are “frustrated by seeing the respect and regard people have for martyrs”.
The party also warned Indian administration of “dire consequences” if the harassment and expulsion of Kashmiri students from Indian educational institutions is not stopped.
Condemning the “murderous” assault of Kashmiri students in Jodhpur Dental College, the spokesperson said, “Even the college administration is spewing venom against Kashmiri students by adding fuel to the fire.”
Meanwhile, a DFP delegations led by Er Farooq Ahmad Khan visited Wahil Shopian to pay tributes and express solidarity with the families of recently slain militants.
The spokesperson also supported the shutdown call given by Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani for April 12 against the continuous harassment of Kashmiri students in Indian colleges and the desecration of martyrs’ graveyard in Pulwama.
