SRINAGAR: Muslim League Jammu Kashmir on Monday visited the residence of the slain militant in Arihal village of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district, and expressed condolence and solidarity with the bereaved family.
A League spokesperson in a statement said a high level delegation led by general secretary Muhammad Rafiq Ganaie visited the slain militant’s home.
Rafiq while addressing the people present there said New Delhi instead of taking measures to resolve the long-pending dispute in its historical perspective wants to thrust its choice upon Kashmiris through the barrel of gun.
“More than 6 lakh people have been killed and an economy worth trillions lost, but Indian brutality and repression, through its local conduits, seems to have no end. This gloomy situation has forced our highly qualified and professionals to fight back and pay the oppressor in the same coin. They prefer rendering their lives than living a life of slavery,” he said.
“Our youth are leaving their homes, relatives and shining careers for the grace and glory of nation and Ummah and offering supreme sacrifices of their lives. We as a mature nation 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. Sacrifices of these youth are giving a new impetus to the ongoing freedom struggle.”
“India must give up its rigidity to resolve the long-pending Kashmir dispute. This is the only way out to stop the bloodshed in the disputed region,” Ganaie said.
