Srinagar, May 7: Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik Monday announced that strike across Kashmir will continue on Tuesday also against the “bloodbath in Shopian district on Sunday.”
JRL asked the people to observe strike against what they called genocide of Kashmiris and the bloodbath in Shopian for the third day on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, strongly condemning the government’s decision of foiling the protest marches of lawyers, traders, and employees towards the civil secretariat, the JRL said imposition of curfew in entire downtown and caging the entire resistance leadership reflects “frustration and acceptance of defeat by the government.”
JRL said that arresting resistance leaders, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Mukhtar Waza, Gulzar Ahmed , Hilal War, Muhammad Ashraf Laya, and others is highly condemnable and that the move can’t force the resistance camp into submission and instead further strengthen their resolve to raise voices against the ultimate repression.
