Srinagar: Terming the prevailing situation in Kashmir as worrisome, Hurriyat Conference (M) chairperson Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, on Friday said that Kashmir was passing through the worst phase of “repression as bloodshed and oppression” have touched new heights in the Valley.
Addressing the Friday congregation, at historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar after three weeks, Mirwaiz said that Kashmir’s every inch is witnessing “open aggression and worst ever state terrorism” as entire Valley has been turned into a slaughter house for the only reason that its people want their legitimate birth right, i.e. the right to self determination.
He said Kashmiri youth are being selectively killed, houses blown up with explosives, its inmates including women are being thrashed and the resistance leadership booked under draconian PSA’s which signifies the gravity of the prevailing situation in Kashmir.
“Lakhs of forces present across the length and breadth of Kashmir who have unleashed a reign of terror with the result people have started feeling highly insecure as people in various villages in South Kashmir have already started migrating to other places due to fear created by the presence of forces. He said that genuine political, social and religious rights are being muzzled through military might, besides the Kashmir’s grand mosque, Jama Masjid is deliberately targeted to silence the voice of people.”
