SRINAGAR: A delegation of Hurriyat Conference (M) on Tuesday visited the residence of slain Amir Hamid Lone of Chattergul Kangan in Ganderbal district who was injured during the funeral of another slain youth and later succumbed at SKIMS.
A statement issued here said that on the directions of amalgam chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, a delegation comprising Ghulam Nabi Zaki, Abdur Rashid Untoo, Ghulam Nabi Najar, Jaffar Kashmiri and Sahil Ahmed War condoled the demise of Amir and expressed solidarity with his parents.
Mirwaiz, who continues to be under house arrest, spoke to slain Amir’s father Abdul Hameed Lone over phone and expressed his condolence and sympathy with the family, the statement said, adding that Mirwaiz while speaking to Amir’s father stated that the sacrifices offered by people of Kashmir would not go in vain and that the leadership and people of entire Kashmir are committed to safeguard these sacrifices and take the mission of martyrs to its logical conclusion.
The delegation while paying tributes to slain Amir stated that killings of young boys of Kashmir are unacceptable. “Under a well-planned conspiracy, forces are given unbridled powers and are selectively killing young boys to push the people and resistance leadership into a submission. The iron-fist policy of New Delhi and the ultimate repression has failed on ground to break the resolve of people of Kashmir, who have always shown a tremendous committed towards the ongoing movement. The hot blood spilled by the young martyrs of Kashmir will never go in vain.”
Meanwhile, a spokesperson of the conglomerate condemned the use of force against the school going students in Lolab and Sopore terming it the highhandedness of government forces.
“Using brute force including tear gas on the young students including female ones reflects the frustration on part of the rulers, who have already pushed the young generation of Kashmir to the wall by blocking all means of peaceful protests. Using force to disallow the student and people’s protest has become a routine in Kashmir which is an irony,” the spokesperson said.
