Indian troops martyr four more youth in IIOJK

Several youth arrested in crackdown operations

Srinagar, June 07 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh acts of state terrorism martyred four more Kashmiri youth in Kupwara, Baramulla and Shopian districts.

The troops martyred two youth during a violent cordon and search operation in Kandi area of Kupwara district, today. The troops martyred one youth each during similar operations at Zaloori in Baramulla and in Badimarg area of Shopian.

Meanwhile, Indian army and police arrested several youth during crackdown operations in Doda, Kishtwar, Ramban, Shopian and Badgam districts. The detained youth were booked under draconian law, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Many youth were summoned to police stations and army camps in the name of questioning where they were tortured and harassed by the brutal forces’ personnel.

Posters once again appeared in Srinagar and other parts of the territory condemning the anti-Kashmiris policies being pursued by the Modi-led Hindutva regime in IIOJK. Some of the posters decried the silence of the United Nations and the world community over the targeting of Kashmiri youth by the Modi-led Hinudtva regime in the occupied territory.

The BJP government has decided to reactivate the gang of Indian Army-backed killers in the name of so-called Village Defense Committees in Jammu region. The RSS goons associated with these committees had killed many innocent Kashmiri Muslims in the past.

On the other hand, condolence messages over death of senior APHC leader Muhammad Musaddiq Aadil continued to pour in, today. The incarcerated senior APHC leaders, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Nayeem Ahmed Khan, in their messages from New Delhi’s Tihar Jail while recalling the sacrifices of the late leader for the Kashmir cause vowed that Kashmiri people would continue his legacy in the form of persistent struggle for their right to self-determination.

Awami Action Committee headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement remembered its member and socio-political activist Molvi Mushtaq Ahmed on his 18th martyrdom anniversary. Molvi Mushtaq Ahmad was shot dead by unknown gunmen while he was leaving a mosque in Srinagar in 2004.
