SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Monday hailed the “courage and determination” of the Bijbehara residents for opening their shops despite the ‘threats’ from the station house officer concerned Arshad Khan.
“They have challenged the ruthless and arrogant behavior of an Indian stooge in uniform Arshad Khan by opening the shops after 6 pm as per resistance leadership’s programme,” a spokesman of the conglomerate said in a statement issued here.
“Hurriyat salutes their resolute towards the ongoing struggle,” he said, appealing of the Valley to follow “such courageous acts” to foil the “ill designs” of the “anti-movement elements”.
“Arshad Khan like people are beasts in uniform and such cowards can never ever stand to the dedication and will of the masses,” the spokesman said.
Commenting the government forces’ action in Shopian, the spokesman said that despite the force used by local administration, people “courageously” assembled again.
“It is highly appreciable,” he said.
The Hurriyat (G) spokesman also condemned the night raids by police and use of force on civilians.
“These inhuman so-called law enforcing men themselves defy their own laws to quench their thirst of hatred against the freedom-loving people,” he said.
The spokesman termed them as “beasts devoid of any human feelings.” He said “they have become deaf and dumb only to serve the interests of India.”
