Indian NIA dirty tactics against Kashmiri freedom leaders

SEINAGAR - In occupied Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that India is using its National Investigating Agency to harass the Kashmiri resistance leaders and intimidate them into submission.

The APHC Chairman in a statement in Srinagar said that such tactics cannot cow down the pro-freedom leadership. He strongly condemned the interrogation of four sons and son-in-law of prominent freedom leader, Syed Salahuddin, by the NIA.

He said Syed Salahuddin is a forerunner and a prominent figure in the ongoing freedom movement and has dedicated his whole life for the sacred cause and such cowardly measures cannot weaken his commitment to the liberation struggle.

The Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq also in a statement said that India’s brutal tactics would not succeed to suppress the Kashmiris’ genuine struggle for securing their right to self-determination.

Meanwhile, clashes erupted in Balhama area of Srinagar, today, after Indian troops used brute force on series of protests against a siege and search operation by the Indian forces.

In London, Kashmiri diaspora in Britain held a peaceful protest demanding an end to bloodshed at the hands of Indian troops in occupied Kashmir and release of all Kashmiri political prisoners including senior APHC leader, Shabbir Ahmed Shah.
