State terrorism: Indian forces martyred 6 Kashmiri youth in fake encounters in occupied Kashmir
ISLAMABAD - Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred two more Kashmiri youth in Badgam district, today, raising the number of martyred youth to six since Wednesday night.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the troops martyred the two youth during a cordon and search operation at Sutsoo Kalan in Nowgam area of the district. Earlier, five Indian troops were injured in an attack in the same area. During similar operations, the troops had killed three youth in Shopian on Wednesday night and another in Kupwara, yesterday.
The Joint Resistance Leadership in a statement in Srinagar said the killing of Kashmiri youth during cordon and search operations across the Kashmir valley is painful.
It also termed as a welcome move the European Parliament Members’ letter to the Indian Government in which they expressed grave concern over continued human rights violations in occupied Kashmir and demanded repeal of draconian laws, ban on use of pellet guns and action as per the recommendations in the Kashmir report of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Hurriyat leaders including Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Musadsiq Aadil, Mushtaq-ul-Islam and Muhammad Rafiq Ganai in their statements said that the Kashmiri youth were laying down their lives for a sacred cause of freedom and their sacrifices would not go waste.
The Chairman of Muslim Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, and other Hurriyat leaders, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Imtiyaz Ahmed Reshi, Ghulan Nabi Wasim and Ghulam Nabi War in their statements in Srinagar paid homage to the prominent martyred Kashmiri freedom leaders, Ashfaq Majeed Wani and Advocate Jaleel Andrabi, on their martyrdom anniversaries.
