Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL)comprising Syed ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yaseen Malik, on Wednesday have called for a shutdown and march to the UN office on Friday, July 21 to protest against the “killings of Kashmiris, especially the genocide of our youth by government forces”.
While appealing the people from all walks of life to participate in the sit-in after Juma prayers, JRL said that they would lead a peaceful sit-in protest outside the UN office in Sonwar after congregational prayers.
The sit-in would be organized to register protest and deep resentment against all killings of Kashmiris, especially the systematic genocide of our youth by the state forces and their persecution and illegal detention, said the JRL.
The protest would also be organized against arbitrary curfews and restrictions in the valley, beating and injuring of people, curbs and persecution of leadership to the extent of disallowing them from participating in family funerals by force.
“A complete shutdown will be observed on that day,” said the JRK.
