Demo in Muzaffarabad against Modi’s speech in UNGA

Muzaffarabad, September 25 (KMS): People held a protest demonstration in Muzaffarabad, today, against the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s address to the United Nations General Assembly.

A large number of people gathered at Shaheed Burhan Wani Chowk in Muzaffarabad under the aegis of Pasban-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir and chanted anti-Modi slogans and waved black flags.

The protesters were also holding banners and placards with slogans against India and Modi and in favour of Kashmir’s freedom form Indian illegal occupation.

The protesters marched on the main highway from Shaheed Burhan Wani Chowk to Gharipan Chowk.

Addressing the protesters, Pasban-e-Hurriyat Chairman, Uzair Ahmad Ghazali said that the address to the UN General Assembly by a person who massacred humanity in occupied Jammu and Kashmir and India was a blot on peace and justice.

Other speakers said, the speech of Narendra Modi in the UN General Assembly is unacceptable to the peace and justice-seeking nations around the world. They maintained that under the leadership of Narendra Modi, Bharatiya Janata Party, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Rashtriya Swayamsevak and other Hindu extremist organizations were trying to erase Islamic history, heritage and culture in IIOJK.

The speakers deplored that people in the occupied territory, particularly Muslims, are not safe from Narendra Modi-led racist ideology and they face the brutalities of Indian armed forces just for their legitimate freedom struggle.

“We are astonished that a person who is responsible for massacre of Muslims in Gujarat and IIOJK has been allowed to address the most prestigious organization of the world,” the speakers said.
