JRL said that entire nation observed the 28th martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed-e-Milat and over 60 martyrs of Hawal massacre, and 16th anniversary of Shaheed-e-Hurriyat and today and remembered the sacrifices offered by the great leaders and the people of Kashmir. The leadership said that the complete shutdown observed by the people across the Valley amplifies their commitment to the mission of the martyrs and the ongoing movement and their pledge that no matter how tough the repression goes, people will continue to strive for their rights till the final goal is achieved.
JRL condemned in strongest words the stringent curbs imposed in entire downtown by the government to foil the Eidgah rally where leaders and people would pay tributes to the martyrs and reaffirm their pledge , stating that the ruling regimes fear of peoples power and commitment towards the freedom struggle makes them take these totalitarian measures .The ruling regime doesn’t have the courage to meet us on political turf.
JRL said that no matter how far Delhi and its local Collaborators go in unleashing repression upon people, people have shown that they will continue to follow the cause for which the martyrs sacrificed their life and will at all cost resist the New Delhi’s military might with full strength.
JRL expressed its regret and anguish over the ruling regimes measure of barring congregational fateh khawani at the martyr’s graveyard since the past eight years by use of extreme force and imposing strict curbs in majority of downtown areas. They said that such inhuman measure exposes the stooges and their masters that they do not even allow us to offer Fateh for our dead and visit their graveyard on their martyrdom day.
JRL also denounced the rulers for keeping the entire downtown under curfew for the past three days even during the holy month of Ramadan
Meanwhile, dozens of resistance leaders including Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Engineer Hilal Ahmed War, and others were placed under house detention.
