Srinagar, Oct 21: Paying glorious tributes to martyrs of Bijbehara, Fateh Kadal and Allochi Bagh on their 25th martyrdom anniversary, the Democratic Freedom Party has said the sacrifices of these martyrs are continuation of the freedom mission of the nation and our hearts are filled with the memories of these beloved martyrs.
In a statement issued to KNS, a Freedom Party spokesperson on Saturday said before carrying out this bloodshed, the occupational forces had laid siege of the Dargah Hazratbal and tried to violate its sanctity.
The forces by entering the Dargah hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims and the move evoked strong Valley wide protests. In response, the forces martyred more than 60 people across Valley and injured hundreds.
The party while making a special mention of Bijbehara martyrs said even though people were protesting in a peaceful manner but the occupational forces under a well thought out plan resorted to indiscriminate firing without any provocation and martyred more than 50 people and injured more than 100.
The DFP while praying in favour of martyrs said their mission will be accomplished at any cost till it is taken to logical conclusion.
Meanwhile, the party spokesperson termed the people’s strong protests against braid chopping as eye opener and said people gave a clear message to culprits that any kind of attack on the chastity and honour of women will not be tolerated.
Terming the statements by authorities that braid chopping is mass hysteria, as frustration of government, the party said such assertions make it clear that culprits are getting state protection and are given open licence to carry out such shameful acts. (KNS)
