The meeting said that barring Mirwaiz to address the religious gathering left thousands of people disappointed and angry. The meeting termed barring Mirwaiz from carrying out his religious obligations as condemnable interference in his religious rights.
The meeting termed the rape and murder of 8-year-old Katha girl as gruesome and heart wrenching and demanded culprits involved to be hanged. The meeting made it clear that whether it is the issue of justice for or any issue related to injustice or harassment of the people of Jammu, Chenab Valley, Rajouri and Poonch, the people of Kashmir and leadership will always stand with them.
The meeting stated that Kashmir was reeling under worst form of repression and “state terrorism” especially the southern districts of the Valley where intimidation and harassment by the forces continues to loom large. The meeting said Kashmir’s young are being selectively targeted under the well-planned strategy through bullets and pellets.
The meeting strongly condemned the recent bloodbath in Kulgam district where four youth including two teenagers were brutally killed, more than 100 peaceful protesters showered with pellets and many residential houses and shops razed to ground.
Paying rich tributes to all the martyrs of Kashmir, AAC reiterated its pledge to safeguard the mission of martyrs and to intensify the efforts for the right of self-determination of the people of J&K.
