While speaking on the occasion JKLF leaders said that “martyrs are our real heroes and our nation is indebted to these great souls who are sacrificing their lives for our better and secure future.”
“Police and forces are torturing, humiliating and thus pushing our young boys to the wall and then killing these budding flowers with impunity but international community as well as the human rights groups seem to have sealed their lips on these massacre,” they said.
The leaders said that India and the local government should know that Kashmiri nation is committed to take the sacred mission of these martyrs to its desired goal.
“India and the local government have choked every little space on peaceful struggle and jails and police stations are filled with leaders and common Kashmiris,” they said.
They said that JKLF chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik is in Srinagar central jail from 3rd July 2017 whereas other leaders are also under house detention. “All this tyranny and oppression cannot be termed but as anti democratic and worst kind of dictatorship,” the JKLF leaders added.
The condolence meeting held for slain militants, Tafazul Islam was addressed by JKLF leader Siraj Ud din Mir who also led a protest march after the condolence meeting.
A congregational prayers meeting was also held for martyrs on the occasion, the spokesman said.
