Strongly condemning the recent killing of unarmed civilians Muhammad Yousuf Rather of Nowshera Islamabad, Sheeraz Ahmad Naikoo of Brakpora Islamabad, Waqas Ahmad Rather of Nowpora Pulwama, Ajaz Ahmad of Kulgam and injuring several during CASO operations launched by the government forces at various places in South Kashmir and the dastardly assassination of noted senior journalist Syed Shujaat Bukhari by unidentified gunmen, the APHC has said the spilling of the blood and human tragedies has become a routine in Kashmir.
To protest against these acts of killing the APHC held a peaceful and silent sit-in protest after the Friday congregation prayers outside Jamia Masjid Srinagar in which a number of APHC activists participated.
The Protestors demanded an immediate end to the “innocent killing and atrocities” on the people of Kashmir.
Meanwhile, APHC has paid glowing tributes to Dawood Ahmad Sofi from Srinagar, Majid Manzoor Dar of Talangam Pulwama, Aadil Rehman Bhat of Shettipora Bijbehara and Mohd Ashraf Itoo from Hatigam Srigufwara Islamabad who was killed in an encounter in South Kashmir. The Hurriyat said the sacrifices rendered by the youth of Kashmir will undoubtedly bear fruit.
