Indian oppression failed to suppress Kashmiris’ spirit for freedom: TWI

Srinagar, September 29 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir has said that Kashmiris have been fighting against India’s illegal occupation of their homeland since 1947 and India, despite all its oppression, has failed to suppress their spirit for freedom.

The TWI held a meeting of its Advisory Council in Badgam which was presided over by the party Chairman Khadim Hussain. It was said in the meeting that the Hindutva government of BJP has started a never ending series of imperialist tactics to keep the Kashmiris away from the freedom struggle. The participants of the meeting said that black laws were being enacted in the occupied territory to intimidate the Kashmiris into submission. They said so far many Kashmiri government employees have been sacked under black laws for their affiliation with the freedom movement. They said that taking away one’s livelihood on the basis of mere allegations was a grave injustice and a gross violation of basic human rights.

The TWI leaders said that India was trying to give an impression to the international community through air shows and other so-called programmes in Srinagar and other areas under the watchful eye of its forces that the situation in IIOJK was normal. India can never turn its defeat in the occupied territory into a victory, nor can it further mislead the world, they added.

The participants of the meeting paid rich tributes to the youth recently martyred by Indian troops in Bandipora and Baramulla areas and reiterated the Kashmiris’ commitment that they would continue their struggle till the accomplishment of the mission of their martyrs. They said the morale of the Kashmiri people is very high and they would never surrender before Indian state terrorism. Therefore, they said that India must accept its defeat and resolve the Kashmir dispute by giving the Kashmiris their right to self-determination for ensuring peace in the region.

The meeting was attended by party General Secretary Fayyaz Ahmed, Chief Organizer Ali Muhammad, Spokesman Shahid Ali, Head of Tabligh Department Syed Muhammad Abidi, Muhammad Maqbool Magami, Wajid Ali, Ali Muhammad Iqbal, Shaheen Abbas, Shabbir Hussain, Dilawar Abbas, Zahid Afzal, Qamar Zaman, Nazir Ali, Wasim Akram and Muhammad Baqir.
