The protesters raised slogans against “atrocities” and criminal silence of the international community, the statement reads.
They on the occasion said that “the Government of India has crossed every limit of ‘oppression’ in Kashmir and the way international community is sitting as a mute spectator is most disgusting.
“The forces are enjoying complete immunity and have been ordered to kill Kashmiris at will by their so-called political masters,” the leaders said.
Paying tributes to slain Shopian militants, the JKLF leaders said that “Kashmir has been turned into a ‘slaughterhouse’ where forces are free to kill, vandalize and harass common people in order to put Kashmiris into submission”.
