Hurriyat M chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has strongly denounced the “repressive” policies of the ruling regime against Kashmiris.
A spokesperson in a statement issued to here said that “on one hand, people are deprived of the basic fundamental right to live in presence of lakhs of government forces and on the other hand a reign of fear is unleashed on the people through harassment and unjustified torture.”
Strongly condemning the acts of violence against the common masses, the spokesperson said that efforts are afoot to crush the genuine dissent through government forces.
While extending the sympathy with the families of slain civilians, a Hurriyat delegation led by Engineer Hilal Ahmed War was on way to Shopian but were stopped and taken into custody and later shifted to Central Jail which deserves the highest condemnation, the spokesperson said. He said now resistance leaders aren’t allowed to condole the killings of innocent civilians.
“These repressive measures by the ruling regime can’t muzzle the genuine aspirations of neither resistance leaders nor the people,” he said.
The spokesperson added that “unleashing fear on the people of downtown including shopkeepers by resorting to thrashing residents, shopkeepers and vandalizing the goods worth lakhs termed it highly condemnable”.
