Srinagar, March 04 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that pellet guns and other brutalities cannot suppress the Kashmiris’ ongoing liberation movement.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressing a public gathering in Srinagar said that Kashmir dispute was a living reality and Indian government’s attempt to define Kashmiris’ movement for right to self-determination under the rubric of terrorism could not stop people from pursuing their demand.

He said that neither fresh diktats to enroll Masjid Imams and Khateebs or creating a sectarian divide, nor resurrecting the infamous Special Operations Group of Indian police could make the people to give up their basic political demand and bring peace and normalcy in the territory. Had it been so, people of the subcontinent would have given up their struggle for independence.

“Instead of looking at ways and means to maintain the status-quo and subvert the people’s struggle, it would be in the best interest of all parties involved in the Kashmir dispute that all energies and efforts are expended at the resolution of the dispute in accordance with the people’s wishes and bring stability and prosperity to the region,” the Mirwaiz said.

He reiterated that oppressive policy and tactics could not suppress the people’s right to self-determination and Hurriyet leadership was committed to represent and support the people’s just struggle for fulfillment of their political aspirations.

Meanwhile, the forum spokesman in a statement condemned the judicial remand of Hurriyet leader, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, and shifting him to Mattan Kehribal Jail. He said termed the action against Mukhtar Waza, who is suffering from severe ailments, ass political vendetta.

The spokesman also strongly denounced the arrest of several innocent youth from Ratnipora area of Pulwama during nocturnal raids. He said that such tactics could not suppress the Kashmiris’ just struggle for securing their right to self-determination. He appealed to the international community to use its influence on India to settle the Kashmir dispute for ensuring peace and stability in South Asia.
