Srinagar, Dec 15: Hurriyat Conference (M) has strongly condemned the fresh spell of killing of almost a dozen youth in Pulwama by government forces.
“What happened in Pulwama today reflects the arrogance of power New Delhi is suffering from and the highhandedness with regard to Kashmir which it treats as its colony under occupation through its repressive military control,” a Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said in a statement issued to GNS.
He said to protest the “Pulwama massacre” a protest rally was carried out by the amalgam and AAC leaders and activists from Jamia Masjid Srinagar which ended at Nowhatta Chowk Srinagar. The protestors also held a sit-in at Nowhatta Chowk and condemned the gruesome Pulwama killings demanding end to CASO and human rights violations in Kashmir.
The spokesperson said authorities once again placed the amalgam chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest while senior leader Mukhtar Ahmad Waza was arrested while he was on way to Pulwama.
“Police raided several houses of APHC and AAC leaders and activists including Sufi Mushtaq Ahmad,” the spokesperson said adding that “these acts of harassment are not new to Kashmiris and leadership, thus can’t cow-down us to carry forward this peaceful movement”.
