Srinagar: People Democratic Party (PDP) chief in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti led a protest today in Srinagar against Israel’s aggression on Gaza.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Mehbooba Mufti and PDP activists gathered at the party headquarters in Srinagar and tried to march towards the Lal Chowk city centre but were stopped by the Indian police near the General Post Office (GPO). The protesters raised slogans against Israel while Mehbooba Mufti was seen carrying the Palestinian flag.
Speaking to reporters, the PDP chief said about 1,500 children and thousands of other innocents have been killed in Palestine so far but the whole world is watching as a mute spectator. “When 500 children were killed in two years in Ukraine, the whole world cried, but today no one is speaking up,” she deplored.
She condemned Israel’s aggression and escalating attacks on the Gaza Strip. She said that the acts of oppression by Israel on the people of Gaza will have very serious consequences.
“We appeal to the world powers to put pressure on Israel and conduct a ceasefire. Palestine is facing oppression. There is no food or medicines or necessities there. People are being shot at and bombs are being thrown at them,” she said.
