Srinagar: Strongly condemning the continuous killing spree in the valley wherein two more innocents have lost their lives on Friday, chairman Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that the continuous curfew and restrictions in Kashmir has created an “emergency regarding essential commodities, baby food and medicines” in the the entire Valley.
In a statement, Mirwaiz who is under continuous house arrest for the past two weeks was by stopped from offering congregational Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid Srinagar and no prayers were allowed at the mosque due to the massive curbs for the second consecutive Friday.
Castigating the government for using force for implementing its authority and writ in Kashmir, he said they they had crossed all limits of “barbarism by killing more than 50 civilians and injuring thousands of people, some of who had been maimed and handicapped forever,and over 150 blinded, while entire Kashmir had been converted into one large jail and human civil and religious rights of people completely trampled upon which should be a cause of concern for the entire civilized world.”
Appealing the United Nations (UN), Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), and the European Union besides world community, Mirwaiz said they should play their role in pressurizing India in ending its naked “aggression, barbarism and state terrorism and help Kashmiris get their basic rights including their right to self-determination.”
He called upon the people to follow the programmes given by the unified resistance leadership in letter and spirit for carrying forward the resistance struggle to its logical conclusion.
“The freedom loving people of Kashmir had resolved not to give up or surrender while the resistance leadership were duty bound and had resolved not to rest till the Kashmir issue reaches its logical conclusion,” he added.
