SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik Monday said July 13 is a glorious day of history.
This was on the day when Kashmiris raised their voices against illegal occupation, oppressive regime and tyranny and dozens of Kashmiris endured bullets on their chests but refused to bow their heads before the forces of falsehood. Present struggle is actually the continuance of the struggle started in 1931 and so are the oppressive forces of both times same, Malik said in a statement.
Malik, who is under house arrest from July 11 termed the 1931 martyrs as symbols of freedom and courage.
It is ironical that rulers and other pro-India forces despite being agents and part and parcel of oppressors celebrate martyrs day and shower flowers on the graves of these martyrs. These people have no shame as they are oppressing people in resistance day in and day out. Today arrests, restrictions, curfew, house arrests and other massive oppressive measures to curb a joint program of all resistance parties has proved beyond any doubt that these so called rulers dont believe in any democratic value.
