Hurriyat Conference (g) Leader Questions Lolab Encounter



Paying tributes to the three unidentified slain militants who were killed in a gunfight with forces in Lolab, Kupwara, Jammu and Kashmir National Front chairperson and All Parties Hurriyat Conference (g) leader, Nayeem Ahmad Khan Sunday said that “nothing can be said about the encounters taking place in far flung areas”.

“How do these encounters happen and who are martyred in them? Nothing can be said,” Khan said while addressing a party meeting in Rafiabad.

He demanded that such encounters should be probed by some neutral international institution. “Martyrs of such encounters are not identified so they should be probed and facts about them should be brought before the world.”

Khan, however, said, “it is certain that the three unknown persons were martyred by Indian occupied forces in Lolab. Days are not far when the blood of innocent persons would show its colour in the form of complete freedom from India.”

Khan also paid rich tributes to Shaheed Wamiq Farooq on his 6th martyrdom anniversary.  Wamiq Farooq, a class 7th student, was killed on January 31, 2010, by the men in uniform at Rajouri Kadal, Srinagar.

Nayeem Ahmad Khan, who is Hurriyat Conference (g) Jammu province head said, “the killing of innocent students like Wamiq Farooq in 2008 and 2010 at the hands of the men in uniform is unforgettable. We have no hope of any justice within the Indian system however we are hopeful that blood of our martyrs will speak up one day.”

Meanwhile a National Front delegation comprised of Abdul Lateef, Ajaz Ahmad and Bashir Ahmad went to Mazar-e-Shohada, Srinagar and participated in the joint prayers of Shaheed Wamiq Farooq.

Khan strongly condemned the arrest spree especially in Pulwama. “Arresting and creating fabricated cases against pro-freedom people can bear no fruits as the freedom struggle is deeply rooted in the minds and hearts of the Kashmiri people.” He alos strongly condemned the slapping of PSA on Tehreek-e-Hurriyat district president Islamabad, Mir Hafizullah.
