Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference (M) leaders Javaid Ahmad Mir and Jaffer Kashmiri visited Padgampora and Bandarpora (Kakapora) villages to pay homage to the men killed in Padgampora Pulwama and to express solidarity with their families.
Expressing solidarity and sympathy with the bereaved families on behalf of Hurriyat Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and other, the leaders stated that Kashmir was a political dispute with a historical and a political context.
Condemning the “brutal force” including unabated use of pellet gun against “unarmed Kashmiris” in Padgampora by the government forces, the leaders termed it inhuman and cruel.
“Indian state is completely turning a blind eye towards the political reality and as such from Kashmir dispute by dealing it as a mere law and order problem,” the leaders said. The leaders cautioned that Kashmir dispute having become a nuclear flashpoint in South Asia, its unresolved status has thrown the stability and prosperity of south Asia in uncertainty.
Meanwhile Hurriyat spokesman has condemned the continuous house arrest of senior Hurriyat leader Mukhtar Ahmad Waza. He termed his continuous arrest as dictatorial.
Hurriyat spokesman has also demanded immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners from jails in Kashmir and outside Kashmir.
