Terming the “oppression and harassment” of the people of Kashmir by the government as aimed at “forcing them to give up their on-going just struggle”, Hurriyat Conference (m) Monday said tactics like using “black draconian laws and massive presence of its forces to commit human rights violations in Kashmir” was not going to cow down the people of Kashmir and make them to give up their legitimate struggle.
Expressing grief and sympathy with the families of five civilians killed in the firing by forces in Handwara and Kupwara recently, a high-level delegation of Hurriyat led by APHC-m’s senior leader and Executive Council member, Bilal Gani Lone said these killings were an example of the high handedness of the government.
He said, “the pro-Indian political parties were shedding crocodile tears in order to do their petty politics. The people of Kashmir understand everything.”
Expressing solidarity with the victim families on behalf of the entire Hurriyat leadership, Lone said their sacrifices offered for a great cause would not go waste.
Meanwhile, condemning the continued confinement of a 16-year-old Handwara school girl in police custody, a Hurriyat (m) spokesperson said this was a gross violation of human rights and by keeping her in custody like that has made her vulnerable.
