SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Sunday condemned the summoning of KTMF president Muhammad Yasin Khan, Kashmir University scholar Aala Fazili, and producing of charge-sheet against senior resistance leader Shabir Ahmad Shah, by NIA.
“These moves are clearly aimed at putting pressure on individuals and organisations who are sympathetic to the freedom struggle,” a spokesperson of the conglomerate said in a statement.
He said the Government of India (GoI) is using NIA and ED as tools to harass and intimidate people. He said the line of action adopted by NIA and ED is purely aimed at changing the focus from the real issue of Kashmir dispute and is an attempt to defame every segment of Kashmiri society.
“These efforts were made in the past as well but failed to change the nature of Kashmiris’ genuine and sacred struggle,” he said. “The fresh assault is also destined to fail.”
The spokesperson said Kashmir issue is a reality accepted by the world community and that 18 resolutions are pending implementation in the UN Security Council. “Kashmiri people continue to remain steadfast and committed towards the ongoing movement and won’t rest till the struggle is taken to its logical conclusion,” he said.
