Hurriyat Conference (m) Chairperson, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Monday termed the government action of sabotaging the Youme-e-Tajdeed programme, jointly announced by the separatist leadership to pay tributes to July 13, 1931 Martyrs, as the “worst display of state sponsored terrorism”.
Condemning the imposition of curfew like situation in many parts of Srinagar, restrictions on offering prayers at historic Jamia Masjid, placing separatists either house arrest or in lockup in different Police Stations, Mirwaiz , who has been placed under house arrest since Sunday morning, said, “the way government used the force and arrest tactics to sabotage the tribute programme of July 13 Martyrs’ Day announced by the pro-freedom leadership shows the dictatorial and undemocratic attitude of the puppet rulers.”
According to an amlagm statement, “ridiculing the double standards of pro-India politicians and the ruling regime,” Mirwaiz stated, “on the one hand restrictions were imposed on the true representatives of the people to stop them from paying tributes to July 13 martyrs, while on the other the puppet rulers, to mislead the world, under a high security blanket, placed wreaths on the martyrs graves. The pro-Indian politics works on deceit and today it has once again got exposed.”
Meanwhile, in connection with the observance of Youm-e-Tajdeed programme, the Hurriyat amalgam held gatherings across the Line of Control to pay tributes to the July 13 1931 martyrs whereby it was recommitted that Kashmiris would continue with their freedom struggle with complete resolve till it reaches its logical conclusion, the statement said.
The statement further said, “senior Hurriyat leaders including Javaid Ahmad Mir and Engineer Hilal Ahmad War including many party workers were arrested and lodged at Kothibagh Police station when they were getting ready to take out a procession.”
“Also in connection with the July 13 martyrs day, a session to pay tributes was held at Sopore martyr grave yard during which senior Hurriyat leader Musadiq Adil along with GN Zaki, Shakeel-ur-Rehman, Riyaz Ahmad, Qutub-ul Alam and a large number of people and workers participated. The participants paid rich tributes to the July 13 martyrs and other martyrs of Kashmir while denouncing the government crackdown on pro-freedom leaders. Also a tribute session led by Hurriyat leader Ghulam Nabi Waseem was held at martyrs graveyard Handwara where rich tributes were paid to the martyrs of 1931 and all the martyrs who laid down their life for the Freedom movement,” the statement concluded.
