This was stated by joint resistance leaders while staging a peaceful protest against ongoing NIA intimidation, incarceration of thousands of Kashmiris Various leaders and activists from JRL organizations gathered at Lal Chowk today and staged an exemplary peaceful protest against ongoing oppression in Kashmir.

Leaders said that people without the discrimination of age and gender have been locked up in jails and police stations and all this is being done in the name of so-called democracy and raising the bogey of law and order. Similarly NIA has been let loose to terrorize freedom seeking people under the pretext of so-called terror funding and this agency besides arresting many people has continued its efforts to threaten people in resistance, businessmen, employees, relatives of resistance leaders and activists and men and women from other walks of life. Condemning the ongoing NIA terrorism, JRL leaders said that on one hand NIA is busy in terrorizing people through intimidations and on the other hand a malicious propaganda against Kashmiri resistance leaders, activists, businessmen and Ulema is going on unabated on various Indian TV channels and media houses. Kashmiris are on daily basis being abused, accused and demonized by so-called anchors that are acting like foot soldiers and mercenaries of Indian occupational forces and on the other hand killed, maimed, blinded and incarcerated shamelessly, added JRL leaders. While hailing the recent report of amnesty international on the plight of Kashmiris, leaders said that amnesty has rightly raised concern about the miseries of Kashmiris and we expect from them that they will raise the question of thousands of Kashmiris languishing in jails too and highlight the hardships these people are facing at the hands of so-called biggest democracy.
