SRINAGAR: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has thanked the people of Kashmir for observing shutdown on the Republic Day of India and observing it as “black day”.
The party in a statement said, “Today’s shutdown must open the eyes of New Delhi which claims of being the largest democracy and it must confess that people of Jammu Kashmir want a resolution to the oldest political dispute.”
Party strongly condemned the imposing of curfew in Srinagar areas and not allowing people to offer Friday prayers. “The local administration at the behest of its masters in New Delhi is intervening in the religious matters of Kashmiri people every now and then which if not stopped can have dangerous consequences,” it said.
The DFP appealed people to “keep the torch of resistance burning until the goal of freedom is achieved”.
