JRL calls for shutdown on Saturday against desecration of graveyards
Srinagar,: Joint Resistance Leadership Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Dr Mohammad Umar Farooq and Mohd Yasin Malik called for a complete shutdown on Saturday against the barbaric and vile actions of brutality.
According to the statement issued to KNS, JRL said that while terming the recent increase in civilian killings, desecration of religious places, unnecessary and unjustified deployment of heavy contingents of forces in Jamia Masjid Srinagar area, desecration of graveyards of martyrs, chopping off fruit orchards at Sugam Shopian, killing of a civilian Bilal Ahmad Ganie and plight of prisoners in various jails including Tihar as ‘barbaric and vile actions of brutality’ of forces.
The trio made a fervent appeal to the freedom loving people of Kashmir to observe a general strike on June 2nd, Saturday to register strong and peaceful protest against the barbaric and vile actions of brutality of forces.
“Bulldozing of residential houses, chopping down the orchards belonging to family members of Hizb Commander Zeenat-ul-Islam and desecrating the graveyards of martyrs like Sameer Tiger and all other forms of state terrorism, the freedom loving people of Kashmir should rise to the occasion to safeguard their countless and precious sacrifices,” JRL said.
JRL condemned the hypocritical role played by the Chief Minister of the state by remaining a mere spectator of the atrocities inflicted on the people of Kashmir and reminded her past when she used to shed crocodile tears on the funeral of slain youth and meeting with families of our martyrs.
Terming her past political postures as ‘a farce’, JRL said “the Chief Minister of the state exploited the grave and grim situation created by the SOG under the shade of her predecessors, today police force has been turned into SOG and a reign of terror has been unleashed in every nook and corner of the state.”
“Civilians are being butchered, apple orchards destroyed, valuables looted, and honour and dignity of a common man has become vulnerable whereas graph of the human rights violations have crossed its climax,” said JRL.
JRL while taking a dig at coalition regime said that occupational forces are suffering from moral bankruptcy and as of now they desecrate these graveyards and scriptures.
They said that the international norms do not permit such vile actions even with worst enemies. “Taking revenge from the family members of the warriors and desecrating their dead bodies is against all human, moral, religious and spiritual ethics,” they said.
JRL appealed UN Secretary General and UN member countries to appoint a delegation, to take stock of the volatile situation in Jammu and Kashmir regarding gross violations of human rights at the hands of Indian occupation forces.
