Srinagar, July 12: (GNS) An important meeting of leaders and activists of Hurriyat Conference (M) and Awami Action Committee (AAC) was held at the historic Mirwaiz Manzil Rajouri Kadal to finalize the program framed in connection with the July 13 Martyrs’ Day.
A Hurriyat (M) spokesperson in a statement issued to GNS said that the amalgam chairman and patron AAC Mirwaiz Umar Farooq couldn’t attend the meeting as he continues to remain under “enforced and illegal” house confinement.
The participants of the meeting strongly condemned the authorities’ decision of caging Mirwaiz and barring him from participating in party meetings, he said adding that the participants strongly condemned the “murder” of a 22-year-old Khalid Gaffar of Kupwara on Wednesday evening.
“Laced with the unbridled powers like AFSPA and DAA, forces are committing the war crimes in Kashmir knowing that they won’t be held accountable for the genocide they are committing. Everyday target killing of youth in every nook and corner of valley as part of CASOs and anti-militancy operations or even otherwise at their will,” the participants observed.
They said the fact remains that GoI and its lakhs of forces present in Kashmir have announced an all-out war against the people of Kashmir and they have planned genocide of youth including minor boys and girls,” they said.
The participants paid glowing tributes to all those who were killed in the past one week including minor Andleeb stating that pro-freedom leaders and workers are duty bound to honour the sacrifices of martyrs and help people in achieving their right to self-determination.
The meeting also paid rich tributes to all the martyrs of July 13, 1931 stating that “the 22 martyrs who fell to the bullets of the then Dogra forces, set base for Kashmir’s pious struggle for freedom from the repressive autocratic rule to people’s own rule”.
“All the participants took a pledge that the supreme sacrifice of martyrs so that Kashmiri’s can become masters of their destiny will not go waste and the peaceful struggle will continue till the goal of right to self-determination is achieved,” the spokesperson said.
The participants unanimously decided that in keeping with the party’s tradition after offering congregational prayers at the Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq will lead a procession from Jamia Masjid to martyrs graveyard Naqshband Sahab shrine (RA) and pay tributes to the 22 martyrs of July 13, 1931.
They urged people to follow the the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) programme and march towards martyrs graveyard Naqshband sahib (RA) in large numbers to show their love towards the great martyrs who set the foundation for the Kashmir’s freedom struggle, the spokesperson added. (GNS) Finalize
