Srinagar, 12 October: Martyr Manan Bashir Wani represents our passion for dignity and freedom. In Martyr Manan’s words ‘Kashmiris don’t feel dignity in death but feel dignity in fighting but when die whilst fighting illegal military occupation of India, feel dignity in that death too’.
How a nation whose sons like Martyr Manan Bashir Wani are being snatched by tyrants can vote in elections and strengthen the blood soaked hands of killers and murderers. This was stated by the incarcerated chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued to media today.
Meanwhile JKLF leaders and activists along with people in large numbers today managed to gather at Lal chowk and stage a protest against unrelenting killing spree, arrests and also against ongoing municipal election drama.

He said that Kashmiri youth have been pushed to wall by Indian state that provided no space for peaceful dissent to them and hence pushed them towards the path of ultimate sacrifice.
He said that from Shaheed-I-Kashmir Ishfaq Majid Wani to Shaheed Burh Muzafar Wani and Shaheed Manan Bashir Wani, story of passionate struggle and dignified death remains the unchanged and in words of great scholar Manan Shaheed, “Kashmiris don’t feel dignity in death but feel dignity in fighting but when die whilst fighting illegal military occupation of India, feel dignity in that death too”.
JKLF chairman said that on daily basis we are hearing a statement from Indian representative here that they want to kill militancy not the militants but on daily basis we witness ruthless genocide of our youth by blood thirsty Indians who have turned vampires for humans in Kashmir. JKLF chairman said that Indian rulers and their abettors hanged martyr Muhammad Maqbool Butt in Tihar and repeated their state terrorism by hanging Muhammad Afzal Guru too.
They killed legends like Ishafq Majeed Wani, pilot Nadeem Khateeb, Doctor Abdul Ahad Guroo, Doctor Turabi, advocate G Q Sailani, Doctor Farooq Asahai and hundreds and thousands others but failed to defeat or weaken our resolve for freedom . from 2016, we are witnessing and tolerating operation all out from the same state but it has failed in past and is bound to fail in future too as according to the law of nature oppression always perishes and last triumph always belongs to the oppressed.
JKLF chairman said that martyrs are our pride and their sacrifices as our valuable treasure and Nation of Kashmir will never rest before achieving the sacred goal of these great martyrs.
While paying homage to great Martyrs including martyr Manan Bashir Wani and his associate martyr Ashiq Hussain Zargar, JKLF chairman said that a nation whose sons like Martyr Manan Bashir Wani are being snatched by tyrants cannot vote in any elections staged by oppressor and colonial power and strengthen the blood soaked hands of killers and murderers.
He appealed people to stay away from Municipality and Panchayat election drama and respect the sacrifices of great martyrs.
