Coercion will not deter people from pursuing their fundamental right: Mirwaiz


Hurriyat Conference (m) chairperson, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday warned the government that anti-people and aggressive polices adopted by them are resulting in severe consequences for the people and asked it to put an end to it as it will not stop people from striving for their fundamental political right or douse the sentiment for freedom among Kashmiris, but will intensify it more.

Condemning the government decision for converting the surroundings of Jamia Masjid into a military garrison, Mirwaiz stated that the restrictions, hurdles and laying of barbed wires to obstruct the roads was the reflection of the anti-muslim polices adopted by the state.

He said it was a well thought out plan to target Jamia Masjid and make efforts to end its centrality as a political and religious institution of Kashmiris by stopping their arrival into the Masjid.

He further stated that such draconian measures were aimed to silence the voice being raised from the pulpit of Jamia masjid advocating to grants social, political and religious rights to Kashmiris.

Denouncing the use of force and arrest of the students in Srinagar, Sopore, Pulwama and other places, Mirwaiz termed such actions by government forces as worst form of ‘state sponsored terrorism’.

He said, “Extreme state repression in all forms further pushes the youth to resist and stand up against injustice.”
