Top Hurriyet leaders not allowed to hold meeting

Srinagar, November 02 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, over one hundred civilians including women and children were injured, many of them critically, when Indian forces used brute force on peaceful protesters in Srinagar, Islamabad, Shopian, Baramulla and other districts, today.

The troops fired pellets, bullets and teargas shells during their crackdown operations in Soura, Anchar, Bijbehara, Chatragam, Pattan and other areas of the Valley. They barged into houses and ruthlessly beat up everyone who came in their way. The troops did not even allow ambulances to shift the injured to hospitals. They vandalized houses and orchards. The excesses forced people to take to the streets and stage anti-India and pro-freedom protests. They raised slogans like “Go India Go Back” and “We Want Freedom.” »

Srinagar, November 02 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, senior Hurriyet leaders Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi have expressed surprise over rising incidents of burning of schools particularly at a time when Indian armed forces are themselves stationed in many school buildings across the Valley.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “The question needs to be answered as to who is behind this burning and why is it being done?” He said, “Every inch of Kashmir soil and every person in Kashmir are under surveillance. There are over seven lakh Indian troops on ground and a huge police presence in every nook and corner of the Valley.” In such a security scenario, he added, is it possible that burning of schools will take place in such a systematic and frequent manner and the armed forces and intelligence agencies would not be in the know of the culprits to be able to nab them, when they have in the past four months arrested more than 15,000 youth. »
