Srinagar: Hurriyat (M) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muslim League on Sunday paid tributes to the militants killed in Khonmoh gunfight with the government forces, and stated that the sacrifices offered by the youth are the priceless asset of our movement.
The spokesman of Hurriyat (M) in a statement said: “The desecration of dead bodies of these militants is not only the anti-human but also against international law and treaties to which India is a signatory.”
Two Jaish-e-Muhammad militants were killed in the outskirts of Srinagar on Saturday.
“…the priceless sacrifices offered by the youth of Kashmir are the greatest asset of Kashmir’s freedom movement,” he said and added, “The resistance leadership and the people of Kashmir are duty bound to safeguard these sacrifices.”
He further said that a collective approach needs to be followed to take the mission of martyrs forward.
The spokesman stated that it was because of the stubborn approach of New Delhi that Kashmir issue continues to remain lingering and “that the iron fist policy of GoI was pushing youth to adopt armed means of resistance”.
The statement further said that on the directions of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, a delegation of Hurriyat (M) visited the families of slain militants in Pulwama, Shopian, Naaznepora, Rajpora and expressed sympathy and solidarity with them. Mirwaiz also spoke to the families of slain over the phone and extended his solidarity with them, it added.
Muslim League in a statement said: “We need to understand the importance of these huge and sacred sacrifices, and should renew our pledge to continue the march till the goal is achieved.”
The spokesman of ML said that the unprecedented sacrifices of Kashmiri people for Kashmir cause would not go waste. “New Delhi cannot silence the voices of Kashmiris through use of force.”
He further said that “no power on earth can deter us from our much-cherished goal of right to self-determination”.
The ML appealed the world human rights bodies to take notice of HR violations in Kashmir and “help stop bloodshed here”.
