Joint resistance leadership calls for shutdown on Saturday


Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a shutdown in Kashmir on Saturday against the killing of Yousuf Nadeem, shifting of Kashmiri inmates from central jail Srinagar and “bias” of Indian judiciary against Kashmiris.

Muhammad Yousuf Rather alias Yousuf Nadeem was associated with Hurriyat (G). He was shot dead by gunmen while he was travelling home in a passenger vehicle in Beerwah area of Budgam.

“Shifting political inmates and lifers from Srinagar central jail, ‘cancellation’ of FIR against Shopian killers by Indian supreme court and brutal killing of Hurriyat leader Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem are all glaring example of tyranny unleashed against Kashmiris,” said the JRL, in a statement today.

JRL comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik who is admitted at SKIMS have strongly condemned the “oppression” unleashed against Kashmiris by the forces, said the statement.

While strongly condemning the brutal killing of a Hurriyat activist and spokesperson of Tehreek I Wahdat Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem who fell to the bullets of some unknown persons at Beerwah recently, JRL said that Yousuf Nadeem was a passionate freedom lover and his cold-blooded in suspicious circumstances has raised many questions.

In a Statement, JRL said that it has been an old ploy of agencies to “terrorize freedom fighters” by these kinds of gruesome killings done under the cover of ‘unknown’ person.

They said that such killings can never deter freedom camp from pursuing the path of resistance and no stone will be left unturned to achieve the sacred goal. JRL while paying tributes to Yousuf Nadeem, expressed solidarity with his bereaved family and organization.
