SRINAGAR: Strongly condemning the continuous arrest of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and the fresh wave of “atrocities” on people, the Hurriyat Conference (M) on Sunday said using military might to crush the genuine struggle of Kashmiris stands an eye-opener for world rights bodies and nations believing in democracy.
A spokesperson of the conglomerate in a statement strongly denounced the fresh wave of arrests of family members of United Jihad Council (UJC) chief Syed Salahuddin by NIA, sending summons to rest of the family members and calling them to New Delhi for questioning as “political vendetta”. He said harassing family members by NIA in the name of questions deserves all forms of condemnations.
“The grandson of UJC chief is a student and summoning him to New Delhi will cast a shadow on his educational career,” he said.
Meanwhile, addressing the delegations from Pulwama, Kakapora, Sambooara and other areas, senior APHC leader Mukhtar Ahmad Waza expressed solidarity with the families whose dear ones have been arrested by forces. “By using military might, (the) genuine and sacred movements can’t be muzzled. Kashmiris are fighting for right to self-determination and priceless sacrifices have been given by the people of Kashmir,” he said.
Waza also expressed sympathy and solidarity with the family members of “martyrs”, saying it was because of their sacrifices that Kashmir issue is echoing at various world forms and its resolution considered inevitable for the everlasting peace in South Asia.
