Imposition of curbs, restrictions in IOK denounced

Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, has condemned the puppet regime for arresting Hurriyet leaders and activists and imposing curbs on their political activities.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar castigated the puppet regime for imposing restrictions in Srinagar and other parts of the Kashmir Valley to foil a march towards Kulgam on Wednesday. He said, “The restrictions, crackdown against leaders and activists and clamping curfew-like curbs are illogical. These arbitrary measures reflect extreme state terrorism. Youth are being brutally killed and we are not even allowed to mourn or offer tearful tributes to our martyrs,” he said.

The APHC Chairman said that from the inception of PDP-BJP regime in occupied Kashmir, the people were reeling under the worst type of state terrorism and situation in the territory had turned from bad to worse. He denounced the use of brute force and pellet gun against peaceful protestors.

Syed Ali Gilani expressed concern over the surge in the killing of innocent youth by Indian troops. He paid rich tributes to the youth who embraced martyrdom while fighting against the troops in Hajin and Handwara areas. He said that it was outcome of rigid, inflexible and obscure approach of India. He urged the Indian authorities to shun their stubborn attitude and resolve the Kashmir dispute without any further delay.

Meanwhile, on the instructions of Syed Ali Gilani, despite all curbs, impediments and restrictions, a high-level delegation comprising Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Farooq Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Ashraf Laya, Bilal Siddiqui, Muhammad Yasin Atai, Abdur Rasheed Lone, Muhammad Ramzan Khan, Khawaja Firdous, Muhammad Yusuf Mir, Zaheer Abbas and Sajad Lone reached Kulgam and paid homage to the martyred youth and expressed solidarity with the bereaved families.

On the other hand, APHC leaders, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi and Nayeem Ahmed Khan, in their statements issued in Srinagar also denounced the puppet regime for imposing restrictions to foil the Kulgam march. They said that curbing the movement of the people and detaining Hurriyet leaders would not help India to crush the sentiments of the people. They also paid glorious tributes to the youth martyred by Indian troops in Hajin and Kulgam. They maintained that resolution of the longstanding Kashmir dispute was imperative for peace, progress and stability in the region.

The APHC leaders also expressed grief and sorrow over the loss of precious lives in a bomb blast in Lahore.
