India using clever tactics to suppress freedom movement: Khawaja Firdous

Srinagar, June 14 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Khawaja Firdous, leader of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and Chairman of the Democratic Political Movement has expressed grave concern over the Indian government’s massive deployment of forces in the territory.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Khawaja Firdous while addressing a party meeting in Srinagar said that the Kashmiri people would never give up their movement for self-determination as they have made unprecedented sacrifices against Indian domination. He said that the day is not far when the people of Kashmir would see the dawn of freedom. He said that Modi government, backed by Hindu extremist organization RSS, had revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019 in violation of international law and now another operation was being prepared in the occupied territory.

The APHC leader said that the fascist Indian government not only wants to evict the Kashmiri people from their homeland in order to turn the Muslim majority of Jammu and Kashmir into a minority in the style of Israel but is also recruiting non-Kashmiris by expelling Kashmiris in every sector.

Firdous said that India could not weaken the Kashmiris’ spirit of freedom with such clever tactics. He urged the international community and the United Nations to play their role in resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant resolutions and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

The meeting discussed in detail the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir and strongly condemned the recent killing of Kashmiri youth by Indian troops in Sopore. Apart from Khawaja Firdous, General Secretary Pir Hilal Ahmed, Chief Organizer Muhammad Shoaib, Senior Leader Shakeel Ahmed Butt, Sajjad Ahmed Baig and other officials attended the meeting.

Meanwhile, Abdul Ahad Parra, Acting Chairman, Muslim League-Jammu and Kashmir, in a statement appealed to human rights organizations to take steps for the release of all prisoners of Jammu and Kashmir, including Masarrat Aalam Butt, Shabbir Ahmad Shah Muhammad Yasin Malik, Aasiya Andrabi Muhammad Y ousuf Mir, Farooq Ahmed Tawhidi, Mohammad Rafiq Ganai, Mohammad Hayat Butt, Shaukat Hakeem Merajuddin Nanda, Feroz Ahmed Dar, Rameez Raja, Mohammad Iqbal Wani, Sohail Parra, Adil Zargar, Dawood Zargar and others.
