Srinagar, March 04 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Feroz Ahmed Khan and Muhammad Ramzan Khan have expressed concern over Indian government’s decision of providing more pellet guns for its armed forces to quell protest demonstrations in the territory.

Nayeem Ahmad Khan addressing in Srinagar a meeting of his party, the Jammu and Kashmir National Front, said that India could not suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom movement by using blind and ruthless force against them. He said that New Delhi had always been looking for the justifications to use excessive force to intimidate the people of Kashmir into submission but miserably failed in its nefarious designs.

The Chairman of Kashmir Freedom Front (KFF), Syed Bashir Andrabi in a statement issued in Srinagar said that supply of 5,000 more deadly pellet guns to Kashmir clearly indicated that in future more brutal actions would be carried out on the people of occupied Kashmir. He said, “The killings of over 100 innocent and unarmed people in 2016 and maiming of thousands of people are fresh in our memories and providing more lethal weapons to the troops reflects the height of atrocities being committed on Kashmiris.”

He said that killings, maiming and arrests would never subdue the Kashmiris’ resolve and they would continue their struggle for securing their right to self-determination till complete success.

The Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League (JKML), Mohammad Yousuf Mir addressing a public gathering at Shermal in Shopian and the General Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL), Mohammad Ramzan Khan in a statement issued in Srinagar expressed concern over the fresh supply of pellet guns to Indian troops in the occupied territory.

They said that pellets had already blinded over a thousand Kashmiris including women and children during the ongoing mass uprising triggered by the martyrdom of youth leader, Burhan Wani, on July 8, last year. They said that the use of lethal weapons on peaceful protesters in the territory was also violation of international law.
