Hurriyat (M)Conference on Tuesday has strongly condemned the killing of two innocent youth in government forces action that includes Ubaid Manzoor of Nadihal Rafiabad and Tamsheel Ahmed Khan of Hayil Shopian and two armed youth were killed during an encounter at Shopian and over 50 civilians suffered injuries.

The spokesman said that under a well-planned conspiracy, the lacs of forces in absence of any accountability have decided to go for a full-fledged war against people of Kashmir.

The Hurriyat said that because of the ultimate “fear and terror” unleashed by the government forces, Muhammad Ishaq Naikoo, the father of an armed youth, a resident of Kandlun, Shopian died of a heart attack soon after he came to know that his militant son is in a siege. The Hurriyat said the gravity of the situation can be gauged from the fact this very incident as it is quite clear now that the entire Kashmir has been left the mercy of forces to push the people, especially youth to the wall.

Paying rich tributes to slain Ubaid and Tamsheel, the Hurriyat said that people of Kashmir are associated with a great and sacred cause and that the “repressive” measures can’t cow-down neither people nor the resistance leadership into a submission.

The Hurriyat spokesman also castigated the authorities for placing resistance leadership under frequent house detention and lodging many others under preventive custody, launching search and cordon operations in southern districts of Kashmir, harassing and arresting youth, stating that these ploys can never yield any result as people of Kashmir have time and again proved that no power can break their commitment towards the just struggle of right to self-determination.
