Bloodshed due to lingering dispute: ML

Srinagar: The Muslim League Wednesday paying tributes to the slain Tral militants said that it was because of the lingering Kashmir issue, the region is witnessing “bloodshed” each passing day.
The spokesperson Sajad Ayobi in a statement said a high level delegation of ML headed by Mohammad Rafiq Ganie visited Handoora Tral and expressed sympathy with the bereaved family of slain Showkat Ahmad Khan.
Ganie, the statement reads, on the occasion said: “The sacrifices offered by the youth are the priceless assets for the ongoing freedom movement and all these martyrs had conveyed a message that the Kashmiri people would never surrender despite all atrocities and excesses.”
He reiterated the pledge to take their mission to its logical end.
Ganai said although we are grieved at the loss of our brave hearts, “but the purpose for which they sacrificed their lives will yield results very soon. The dawn of freedom will rise very soon.”
“These sacrifices needs to be safeguarded and we have a collective responsibility to ensure it,” he said.
He termed the fresh wave of arrest spree of Hurriyat leaders, activists launched across the Valley as part of “political vendetta”. The authorities, he added, “are leaving no stone unturned to crush every voice of dissent and cannot cow down the leaders from their just struggle.”
