SRINAGAR: Muslim League Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday paid tributes to the armed youth killed in a gunfight in Chatpora Pulwama on Friday and the killing of a 14-year-old boy Faizan Ahmad.
A spokesperson of the League in a statement said, “The sacrifices offered by the youth are the priceless assets for the ongoing freedom movement and it was because of the lingering Kashmir issue, the region is witnessing bloodshed each passing day.”
He said that League general secretary Mohammad Rafiq Ganaie led a delegation comprising Abdul Rasheed Khan, Mohammad Riyaz Ahmad, Mir Muhammad Yousuf, Sajad Ahmad Dar, Ghulam Nabi, to Ladu Pampore and Chogal Handwara where they offered funeral prayers and extended heartfelt condolence to the family members of the slain.
Addressing the condolence gathering, Ganaie said, “All these martyrs had conveyed a message that Kashmiri people would never surrender despite all atrocities and excesses perpetrated by the troops.”
“India has declared a war against innocent people, all powers have been conferred to forces in order to suppress the people and their struggle through gun and pellet so the people could surrender and come out for voting in upcoming elections which is impossible,” he added.
