Srinagar: Paying tributes to slain Aqib Ahmad Bhat alias Aqib Molvi of Tral and a foreign militant, Hamas, both of whom were killed in a 27-hour-long firefight with forces in Nazneenpora village of restive Tral Township in Pulwama district, Asiya Andrabi, the chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat on Monday said that the youths are laying down their precious lives for a sanctified cause. She said that the youths are sacrificing for a cherished and ideological mission.
In a statement issued here, Mrs Andrabi in a statement issued here said, “The priceless assets of the ongoing resistance movement are the gallant sacrifices of lives in the struggle.”
She said that it is an incomprehensible matter as to how the militants are being killed selectively. She said that during the previous year 70 militants have been killed.
Secondly this is concerning as well that after the killing of Abu Qasim the bodies of foreign militants are not being handed over to the local people. They are being buried at unknown places. It shows that the military might of India is now afraid of the militants’ bodies. She said people have to think out a ploy to get these pious sacred bodies so that they can be given a warm see off and Islamic burial.
Commenting on the encounter that ensued between forces and militants in Haina Tral, Mrs Andrabi said that forces have waged a war against “innocent” Kashmiris as entire Tral was made a battle-field.
Andrabi said that after Army Chief Bipin Rawat’s threat forces have literally gone berserk and have caged the whole population.
“Since the day Bipin Rawat threatened Kashmiris who march to save militants engaged in encounter sites, the forces behave like wild animals and go on a rampaging spree. They fire live bullets, pellets and shells directly at the civilians aimed at killing the people,” she said.
Mrs Andrabi said that this is war against the innocent Kashmiris.
She said that people marching to save the militants is ample proof that the people of Kashmir are blindly in love with them. “What else will prove it,” she asked, adding, “Where else in the world do people go to save someone else despite knowing that he will be himself killed. This is the bravery of the people of Kashmir and their love for the militants and freedom that makes them do so.”
She said that this is the writing on the wall for the Indian think tanks and occupational machinery. “Sooner they realise it the better it is for them,” she said.
She warned that if New Delhi doesn’t comprehend, this wave will disintegrate the whole India and no power on earth can stop the wave then.
She said that this is befitting reply to Bipin Rawat. “On one side Indian forces are fighting with guns and ammunition while innocent civilians are challenging them across the length and breadth of Kashmir.”
