SRINAGAR: Strongly denouncing the killing of a 15-year-old boy Faizan Ahmed of Ladhoo, Pampore on Friday and inflicting of injuries to scores of people at Pulwama, the joint resistance leadership (JRL) on Saturday said since the imposition of Governor’s rule in the state, an all-out war has been declared against the people.
The JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said “now minor boys are being brutally killed which reflects the government’s policy of ultimate repression aimed at forcing people of Kashmir and the resistance leadership into a submission”.
The leadership said the recent report of United Nations Human Rights Council has “already taken a lid off the gory chapter of human rights violations committed by the lakhs of forces in Kashmir and the report stands as an eye opener for the rest of the world as how the rights of peace loving people of Kashmir are trampled under boots of police, military and paramilitary personnel”.
Meanwhile, Muhammad Yasin Malik, who is also the chief of JKLF, led a protest march at Nowhatta in old Srinagar against the “brutal killing of little Faizan”.
On the occasion, Malik said if innocent killings don’t stop, the JRL will announce people’s agitation.
