Pays tributes to slain Khrew militants

SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Thursday paid tributes to two slain militants who were killed in a gunfight with government forces in Khrew area of Pampore.

“The bloodbath and rising graph of human rights violations in Kashmir is part of New Delhi’s policy of aggression and military might being followed by the lakhs of forces deployed on ground,” a Hurriyat (M) spokesman said in a statement while paying tributes to slain militants Adnan Lone and Adil Ahmed Bhat.

He said that while as youth are being killed on daily basis, people of Kashmir are subjected to ‘violence’ even as an atmosphere of ultimate “fear looms large” everywhere in Kashmir. The spokesman condemned the use of force on the funeral procession of slain militant Mehraj ud Din killed in Chattergam gunfight. “Perhaps Kashmir is the only place in the world where funerals of youth too aren’t spared and instead showered with tear gas shells, pellets and live bullets,” he said.

He said Kashmir issue can’t be kept lingering for a long period anymore and that the international community can’t act as a mute spectator over the war crimes taking place in Kashmir on daily basis.

Meanwhile, senior Hurriyat leader Ghulam Nabi Zaki participated in the funeral of slain militant in Sopore and also paid tributes to him.

Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq expressed his heartfelt condolence over the demise of Haji Ghulam Rasool Banday, the elder brother of amalgam’s political advisor Advocate Abdul Majeed Banday.

Mirwaiz expressed his condolence, sympathy and solidarity with the Banday family and prayed for the highest standards in Janah for the deceased.
