Srinagar, Feb 12: (GNS) Hurriyat Conference (M) has paid tributes to an armed youth Hilal Ahmed Rather killed in an encounter with government forces at Pulwama stating that the educated youth of Kashmir are being pushed to wall leaving them with no choice other than to pick up arms.
Urging the world community to take stock of the prevailing situation in Kashmir, a Hurriyat (M) spokesperson in a statement issued to GNS said that entire Kashmir has been turned into a “military fortress” and is witnessing killings of young and educated boys everyday while as youth are also harassed, detained with the resistance leadership caged in jails or in their own homes.
This all, the Hurriyat said, stands as an eye opener for the world community about the “ultimate oppression” being unleashed by the lakhs of forces personnel deployed at the length and breadth of the Valley.
The spokesperson said that Kashmiri people are sacrificing their lives for the right to self determination and that ploys are being implemented to damage and muzzle our genuine struggle.
“Kashmir is witnessing military operation every day in the guise of CASO under which people of all ages are subjected to worst harassment and kept out of their homes in bone chilling cold for hours together,” he said, adding, “The frequent curbs on the resistance leadership who are not even allowed to mourn the killings of innocent youth stands an eye opener for the world community.” (GNS)
