SRINAGAR: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) has called for a complete shutdown on today against the New Delhi’s “planned genocide” of Kashmiri youth.
In a statement issued here, the JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik expressed serious concern over the restarting of Operation All Out and CASOs with “full vengeance” against people especially in south Kashmir which has resulted in the killing of four innocent civilians.
The leadership said that Operation All Out and CASOs have been restarted by forces in south Kashmir villages, resulting in harassment of people of all ages. “And when people resist to forces’ action, they are showered with pellets and bullets with the sole aim of killing them. The residential houses are being blasted,” it said.
The JRL said it can’t act as mute spectators over the “brutal” killings of unarmed protesters as “since Eid-ul-Fitr, four innocent people including the father of two minor siblings were killed by the trigger-happy forces”.
Condemning the killing of four civilians in forces’ firing since June 16 and the latest Yawar Nazir of Gassipora Qaimoh who was killed on Sunday, Geelani, Mirwaiz and Malik said that more than 50 people were left seriously injured many of them with bullets and lethal pellet injuries.
“Many houses have been blasted and raised to the ground,” JRL said.dvisor K Vijay Kumar convenes introductory meeting with Police Department
