Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops, in their continued acts of state terrorism, martyred 6 Kashmiris including 1 in custody during the last month of June.
According to the data issued by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, today, 200 people were critically injured when Indian police and paramilitary personnel used brute force against peaceful demonstrators in the occupied territory. 60 civilians, mostly youth, were arrested while 3 women were disgraced and 1 house was destroyed by the troops during the month.
On the other hand, the occupation authorities placed the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, under house arrest in Srinagar, today, to prevent him from addressing an international ulema conference at Delgam in Islamabad. The veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, was also confined to his residence. He was scheduled to visit Khanyar where shrine of Pir Dastgeer Sahib was gutted on June 25.
Senior APHC leader, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi, addressing a meeting of his party activists in Badgam said that the Kashmiri people had been waging a peaceful struggle to secure their inalienable right to self-determination. He urged the Kashmiris to beware of the anti-movement elements, who wanted to divide them on sectarian lines.
Hurriyet leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Yasmeen Raja, Zafar Akbar Butt, Javed Ahmad Mir and Mohammad Yousuf Naqash in their separate statements strongly condemned the forcible evacuation of the pro-liberation leader, Ghulam Mohammad Khan Sopori from his self-owned residence by Indian police in Srinagar. They termed the action as the worst form of political vendetta.
