Islamabad, March 01 (KMS): The All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir (APHC-AJK) chapter has paid homage to the martyrs of Zakura and Tengpora massacres on their 33rd martyrdom anniversary, today.
According to Kashmir Media Service, over 50 innocent people were martyred and dozens others injured when Indian troops opened fire on peaceful protesters in Zukoora and Tengpora areas of Srinagar in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir on this day in 1990.
The APHC-AJK leaders at a meeting presided over by the Convener, Mehmood Ahmed Saghar, said the Kashmiri people will not allow the sacrifices of their martyrs to go waste. They said that it was due to these sacrifices that the Kashmir dispute was echoing in every forum of the world.
The APHC-AJK leaders urged India to stop its state terrorism in IIOJK and settle the Kashmir dispute by giving the people of Jammu and Kashmir their right to self-determination as per the relevant UN resolutions for ensuring durable peace and prosperity in the region.
Special prayer was also offered for the martyrs of Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of Pasban-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Uzair Ahmed Ghazali, in a statement issued in Muzaffarabad also paid homage to the martyrs of Zakora and Tengpura massacres.
