Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a complete shutdown on September 10, the day when Home Minister Rajnath Singh arrives in the state.
JRL has urged the people to observe the shutdown and send out a message to the world that by using military might against the people or harresing the leadership genuine and people’s movement in Kashmir cannot be crushed
Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik while strongly condemning the fresh wave of terror unleashed by the Government of India against the Kashmirs resistance camp and also against the people, stated that on the basis of military might, Delhi is trying to choke all space for the pro-freedom leadership.
In a joint statement, the JRL said that to keep the resistance leaders away from the people, all undemocratic means are being employed by Delhi and its stooges in Kashmir while as worst form of oppressive measures are being used to supress the genuine dissent.
The JRL urged people of Kashmir to observe complete shutdown on the upcoming visit of Indian Home Minister on Sunday September 10, 2017. By observing the strike, people of Kashmir will prove to the world community and the Indian leadership
The JRL said that Kashmir issue is not territorial or law and order dispute but a political dispute acknowledged by the highest world body called UN through its 18 resolutions pending implementation and these resolutions give the right to self-determination to the people of Kashmir to choose their fate.
They also condemned the raids conducted by the NIA on the residences of Hurriyat leader Aga Syed Al Moosvi, Al safavi, Ghulam Nabi Sumji, Showkat Bakshi, and Zameer Thakur besides others, and said that the only aim of these raids is to build pressure on the pro-freedom leaders to stop advocating people’s cause for freedom
They further said that such oppressive tactics are not going to break the resolve of pro-freedom leaders, who are duty bound and committed to work towards the final settlement of Kashmir issue as per the wishes and aspirations of people.
