Crushing people’s resistance through NIA, ED is daydreaming: JRL

SRINAGAR: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) on Monday said “manoeuvres to trample a people’s resistance” through NIA, ED like agencies, PSA and “unlawful acts”, banning socio-religious organisations, arresting common people, political activists, ulema and religious scholars, and other acts of crackdown and “tyranny” are like daydreaming.
“Today when Indian state and its leadership is displaying its ignorant chauvinism and has expedited its ‘operation all out’ to defeat our resistance, it is the duty of every Kashmiri to remain steadfast, follow every programme from leadership in letter and spirit and keep the flame of freedom lit,” JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said in a statement issued here.
They termed the “ongoing and unabated Indian oppression in Kashmir valley and Muslim dominated areas of Jammu as a result of colonial mindset of Indian rulers”.
“Human history bears a witness to the fact that suppressing people’s movements through military and police force, is not possible and such dreams always prove dreams without interpretation that never come true,” the leadership said.
Terming the NIA and ED warrants and summons against Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Syed Naseem Geelani and others as part of ‘operation all out’ and undemocratic acts, JRL said, “Framing concocted charges by using NIA, ED like agencies and then intimidating leaders, their children, kith and kin and friends under this garb is ample proof of Indian failure to defeat Kashmiri resistance and this is what has prompted India rulers to start a new revengeful oppression against Kashmiris.”
“This undemocratic approach has and is pushing Kashmiris to the wall and hence promoting worst violence. A struggle that is nourished by the sacred blood of martyrs cannot be defeated by such mean acts and as long as a single Kashmiri lives, this struggle for freedom and right to self-determination will live and reach to its desired goal.”
JRL said summoning Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Syed Naseem Geelani and others to Delhi by NIA and ED is also aimed at fooling Indian public to garner more and more votes and seats in upcoming Indian elections.
JRL deplored the arrest of JKLF chairman, Jama’at-e-Islami spokesperson, Jamiat Ahle Hadith vice president and hundreds of others and slapping PSA on them, reopening “some concocted cases” of Yasin Malik and others.
“These suppressive measures have failed in the past and are bound to fail in the future too,” JRL said. “People who lynch humans in broad daylight under the full glare of cameras, who burn down entire populations, torture and torment the honourable people and are seen threatening to eliminate Muslims on social media are being provided government patronage and those who work for the welfare of society, who provide education, who do social and religious work are banned, their offices and homes stand confiscated and everyone affiliated with them is subjected to worst apathy. This is a glaring example of double standard and testimony of Muslim and Kashmir animosity of Indian rulers and is highly condemnable.”
“Time of tyranny and oppression is short and the nation of Kashmir, God Willing, will achieve its desired goal of freedom and right to self-determination,” JRL said.
