Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) in a joint press release issued to media on Monday said that “manoeuvres” to trample a peoples resistance through NIA, ED like agencies, PSA and Unlawful acts, banning socio /religious organizations, arresting common people, political activists, Ulema and religious scholars, and other acts are like daydreaming. It is the duty of every Kashmiri to remain steadfast, follow every program from leadership in letter and spirit and keep the flame of freedom lit.
The spokesman while terming the ongoing and unabated violence in Kashmir valley and Muslim dominated areas of Jammu as a result of colonial mindset of rulers, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising of APHC (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, APHC (M) chairman Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) said that human history bears a witness to the fact that suppressing peoples movements through “military and police force” is not possible and such dreams always prove dreams without interpretation that never come true.
Naming NIA, ED warrants and summons against Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq, Syed Naseem Geelani and others as part of ‘operation all out’ and undemocratic acts, JRL said that framing concocted charges by using NIA, ED like agencies and then intimidating leaders, their children, kith and kin and friends under this garb is ample proof of failure to defeat Kashmiri resistance and this is what has prompted rulers to start a new revengeful violence against Kashmiris, the statement reads.
JRL said that summoning Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq, Syed Naseem Geelani and other to Delhi by NIA and ED is also aimed at fooling the public to garner more and more votes and seats in upcoming elections which too is a condemnable act.
Deploring the arrest of JKLF chairman, one of the pillars of JRL, Muhammad Yasin Malik , Spokesman of Jamat-I-Islami Advocate Zahid Ali, vice president of Jamiat Ahlihadees Molvi Mushtaq Ahmad Veeri and hundreds of others and implementation of PSA on them, reopening some “concocted” cases on Yasin Malik, JRL said that this arrest spree is also part of operation all out and Kashmiris have been bearing this kind of violence from 70 plus years now.
Leadership said that veteran ailing leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has been placed under house arrest from last many years and Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq and others are also often caged like this and the main purpose of these confinements is to stop leadership from meeting masses. JRL also termed the dossier that has been framed against JRL leader Muhammad Yasin Malik absurd. The leadership also condemned the ban on Jama’at and arrest of its leaders and activists.
