Glowing tributes paid to 6 Jan 1993 Sopore massacre victims
Srinagar, January 06 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and Hurriyat leaders have condemned India for committing scores of massacres including the 1993 Sopore massacre in the territory over past 33 years.
On January 6 in 1993, the Indian forces massacred around 60 men and women in Sopore town.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar while paying rich tributes to the martyrs of Sopore said that brute Indian occupation forces ransacked the town, ruthlessly gunned down many innocent civilians, vandalised major part of the apple town and destroyed the economic backbone of the occupied territory. He condemned the Indian fascist regime for its heinous and criminal act of blocking the fair investigation of the carnage perpetrated by Indian troops. The spokesman called for an impartial probe into the gruesome massacre by International Court of Justice.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference leaders including Syed Bashir Andrabi, Khawaja Firdous, Abdul Ahad Parra, Shabbir Ahmad Dar, Zamrooda Habib, Yasmeen Raja, Farida Behanji, Dr Musaib, Ahmed Bashir Mehmood Ahmad Saghar, Ghulam Muhammad Safi, Syed Aijaz Rehmani, Shameem Shawl and Altaf Ahmad Butt in their statements termed the Kashmiris’ sacrifices as the priceless asset of the ongoing freedom struggle.
They said, the Sopore massacre is a living dark tale of a country which has always perpetrated militarization and suppression under the garb of democratic façade.
The leaders also paid glowing tributes to the victims of Sopore carnage and demanded an impartial probe into all such massacre to bring the perpetrators to justice.
