Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai has paid tributes to three slain militants who were killed in two separate gunfights in south Kashmir’s Tral and Kulgam areas on Tuesday morning.
According to a statement issued here, Sehrai has expressed pain and anguish over the ‘prevailing grim situation’ in Kashmir. “The lack of political will, strategic and economic interests are the reason why the international community appears powerless to halt humanitarian crisis in Kashmir and hold India accountable,” he said.
While paying tributes to Kulgam and Tral slain militants, Sehrai expressed solidarity and grief with the bereaved families. “These youth spilled their precious blood for the great and sacred cause of Kashmir and the entire nation of Kashmir is indebted to these martyrs for their ultimate sacrifice,” he said.
“It is the collective responsibility of the people of Kashmir and the leadership in particular to take the ongoing movement to its ultimate realization,” Sehrai said.
Sehrai strongly condemned the use of force on protestors, leaving many injured in indiscriminate pellet and tear gas shelling. “This is absolute highhandedness of the forces,” he said.
Meanwhile, Sehrai expressed grief over the demise of father of Aga Syed Muzzafer Madni and uncle of Syed Imtiyaz Haider, Aga Syed Hussain Madni of Nowgam Sumbal.
While praying for departed soul, Sehrai prayed and bereaved with the families to bare this irreparable loss.
Hurriyat Conference (M) has paid tributes to three militants killed in two separate gunfights in south Kashmir’s Kulgam and Tral areas.
“The youth of Kashmir are sacrificing their lives for a great and sacred cause and it is our collective responsibility to protect these great sacrifices,” a Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said in a statement issued here.
He said that the people of Kashmir should stay united and show steadfastness towards the mission for which young boys are spilling their hot blood.
“Under a well-planned strategy, the Kashmir’s land is turned red with the blood of young boys every day and that there is no denying the fact that this all is being done under a planned genocide wherein youth are the primary target,” the Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said.
The spokesperson said that almost every day, people are shouldering the coffins of their young ones while as there is ultimate level of fear prevailing everywhere in Kashmir especially in South Kashmir districts. “The people are losing their dear ones while as houses are being razed to ground with high end explosives used by the forces,” he said.
He said the level of ultimate fear looms large in every nook and corner of Kashmir and this all is being done to force the people of Kashmir and the resistance leadership into a submission.
“Kashmir is a well acknowledged dispute at the global level and GoI is trying to use military might to change the nature of disputed status of the issue but time is witness that all efforts to crush a genuine struggle across the globe have failed and that the peoples’ will has always prevailed,” he said.
The spokesman said that the solution to the Kashmir issue lies either in implementing UN resolutions or through tripartite dialogue with the active participation of people of Kashmir on board.
Meanwhile, the spokesman strongly condemned the arrest of senior Hurriyat leader Mukhtar Ahmed Waza and “disallowing” him to carry out his political activities.
