Srinagar, Jan 24: Conglomerate of militant outfits United Jihad Council has said that India has been using all tactics to suppress the Kashmir Freedom Struggle that is based on the genuine sentiments of people of Kashmir.
Quoting Syed Salauddin, United Jihad Council spokesperson Syed Sadaqat Hussain said that Hizb Chief while appealing to the people of Jammu and Kashmir to observe January 26 as ‘black day’, said that since 1947, Indian troopers have martyred thousands of Kashmiri people who demanded right to self-determination and the process is going on. India has been using all the tactics to suppress the freedom movement in Kashmir. It has been resorting to extra-custodial killings and random arrests of innocent youth,” Salahuddin said.
“I appeal to my nation to observe Jan 26 as Black Day so that a message will go across globe that people in Kashmir resent Indian rule. People should also stage protest to expose the hollowness of Indian democracy.
“India has no justification in celebrating its Republic Day in Kashmir when it has terrorized the people and abused basic human rights,” he said. (CNS)
