SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, on Monday said finance minister Arun Jaitley’s should be commended for his frank admission that no distinction is made by the forces between militants and stone-throwing civilians.
“It does not shock us and but it vindicates what we have been saying. It brings to fore the anti-human and anti-Kashmir approach and totalitarian mindset of the ruling regime towards the people of Kashmir,” Mirwaiz said in a statement.
He welcomed the statement of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Secretary General Iyad bin Amin Madan on Kashmir saying the OIC comprising of 57 Islamic countries should urgently send a delegation to the Valley to witness Kashmir’s plight. “All member states should collectively put pressure on India to stop the oppression and solve the issue,” he added.
Expressing grief and sorrow over the brutal killing of yet another youth, Irfan Ahmad of Fateh Kadal at Malarata area of Shehar-e-Khas in Srinagar, Mirwaiz said “as the oppression will keep mounting, we have to brace ourselves for facing more and more hardships in coming days”.
“It is only our faith in Almighty Allah, the justness of our struggle and the sacrifice of our martyrs that will give us the courage to move on,” Mirwaiz added.
He said everyone in personal and professional capacity has to do their bit in helping the movement and supporting each other. Meanwhile, a spokesman of the conglomerate condemned the desecration of a Gurudwara in Ashmuqam area by the government forces.
“Indian authorities are leaving no stone unturned to humiliate people of Kashmir and on the other hand were desecrating sacred Masjids, shrines, Gurduwara and Imambaras across the Valley,” he said.
