Indian police, agencies continue crackdown on Hurriyat leaders, activists

Srinagar, November 04 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian police and dreaded probe agencies as part of their nefarious plan to suppress the Kashmiris’ ongoing freedom movement continue crackdown on the Hurriyat leaders and activists.

Indian police arrested senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Molvi Bashir Ahmad Irfani, during house raids in Sopore town. The police have arrested several youth from different areas of the occupied territory in the past few days. India’s notorious Enforcement Directorate attached the house of illegally detained senior APHC leader, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, located in Sanat Nagar area of Srinagar.

The All Parties Hurriyat Conference in a statement in Srinagar strongly denounced the arrest of Molvi Bashir Irfani and attaching of the house of Shabbir Ahmad Shah. It maintained that India’s brutal tactics cannot intimidate the Kashmiri people into submission and they will continue their struggle till they achieved freedom from the Indian yoke.

Meanwhile, illegally detained senior APHC leader, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, in a message from Srinagar Central Jail paid rich tributes to Jammu martyrs of 1947. He said that the Jammu carnage was one of the biggest massacres and the worst tragedy of human history. Hundreds of thousands of Kashmiri Muslims were massacred by the forces of Dogra Maharaja Hari Singh, Indian Army and Hindu fanatics in different parts of Jammu region while they were migrating to Pakistan during the first week of November in 1947.

The occupation authorities continued to keep senior APHC leader, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, under house detention and once again prevented him from offering Juma prayers at Jamia Masjid, Srinagar. The Mirwaiz has been under continued house arrest since August 05, 2019 when Modi regime repealed the special status of IIOJK.

On the other hand, President of All India Kisan Sabha, the farmers’ wing of the Communist Party of India Marxist, Dr Ashok Dhawale, addressing a conference in Srinagar said that the RSS-backed Hindutva government of India took the decision of abrogating special status of IIOJK in August 2019 on communal lines and since then the Kashmiris were facing gradual disempowerment. He maintained that his party rejects New Delhi’s illegal decision and stands in solidarity with the people of IIOJK. KMS
