Srinagar, Dec 20: Paying rich and glowing tributes to those martyred by Indian forces during a gunfight in Shopian district, Jammu Kashmir Freedom Party has strongly denounced the innocent civilian killings at the hands of Indian forces. The party secretary general, Moulana Mohammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement that our brave hearts like Tanveer Ahmad and others are sacrificing their precious lives to break the chains of oppression. The party statement said that martyrs are laying their precious lives, thus nourishing a sacred cause with their blood.
Expressing grief and sorrow on the killing of a young lady at the hands of Indian forces, Freedom Party secretary general said that main aim behind such innocent killings is to silence the Kashmiri people. Terming the brutal killing of a woman at Batamarun as barbaric, Moulana Tari expressed solidarity and sympathy with the bereaved family and assured that the whole nation is in a state of mourning.
Expressing concern over the overall situation of Kashmir, the Freedom Party secretary general appealed the civilized nations of the world, human rights organizations like Asia Watch and Amnesty International to take cognizance of deteriorating situations of Kashmir where people are being killed and their properties are damaged only for asking for their political rights.
Moulana Tari said that on one hand people of Kashmir are being massacred, they are being hit economically and on the other their genuine political leadership including Freedom Party chief and senior resistance leader Shabir Ahmad Shah is being kept behind bars. This only is aiming at damaging the people politically however the civilized world knows that Kashmiri people are fighting for their political rights and the day is not far when our sacrifices will be honoured.
