Srinagar, June 1: Terming the prevailing situation in state as worrisome and grim, Hurriyat Conference (G) on Friday said that in presence of 7 lakh Indian forces, SOG and police force, the people are living a miserable life and under constant threat.
“People in state are facing horrendous situations, un-proportionate military might, detentions, desecration of religious places and unabated killings,” Hurriyat (G) said in a statement issued to GNS adding that the whole state is in a grip of turmoil and violence has become a daily occurrence.
While supporting the shutdown on June 2 called by JRL, Hurriyat (G) said that “we through peaceful means convey our feelings and represent people’s aspirations and their sentiments”.
Haling the sacrifices laid by nation, Hurriyat (G) said, “We will never succumb to pressure. The sacrifices laid by nation won’t go waste and nobody will be allowed to play with their sacrifices. We will pursue our cherished mission till it is taken to its logical conclusion.”
Referring to civilian properties set ablaze by “brutal forces” in Kakpora Pulwama, Hurriyat (G) said, “Killing, loot, plunder, vandalising properties of civilians and brave hearts, chopping fruit trees has become vulnerable and human rights bodies are not allowed to take notice of this.”
Hurriyat (G) said that authorities barred its chairman Syed Ali Geelani from offering Friday prayers, saying it is brazen interference in religious matters.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (G) leaders and activists staged a protest demonstration at Hyderpora Srinagar against “ill treatment, vengeance, torture and denial of basic rights to detainees lodged in Tihar and other jails”.
Senior leaders and activists including Bilal Sidiqi, Firoz Ahmad Khan, Syed Mohd Shafi, Mohd Yusuf Naqash, Nisar Hussain rather, Kh Firdous, Imtiaz Ahmad Shah, Gulshan Abas, Bashir Ahmad Qureshi, Ab Rashid Lone, Imran Ahmad, Sajad Ahmad, Syed Yasoof, Arshad Ahmad and other participated in protest demonstration, the statement said.
