Srinagar: Terming the anti-Kashmir policies of the states ruling class, ban on peaceful activities of the resistance leadership and arrest spree as dictatorial, Hurriyat Conference (M) today said the way they were taking decisions against the Kashmiri nations political and economic interests and bartering Kashmiris resources to New Delhi for staying in power, it had become incumbent upon the people and the resistance leadership to stage protests against it.
A statement of Hurriyat (M) issued here said PDP-BJP coalition government was implementing anti-Kashmiri policies and under the garb of setting up of Sainik colonies, separate townships for Kashmiri Pandits and New Industrial Policy and at the same time clamming themselves as representatives of Kashmiri people were actually working toward the mission of making Kashmir a colony of India in every respect.
Appealing people to make the programme of the united resistance leadership of staging peaceful protests and hoisting black flags after Friday congregational prayers a success, the APHC statement said this would send a message against these anti-Kashmir policies of the government.
Condemning the continued arrest of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik at Central Jail, Srinagar and detentions and house arrests of several other resistance leaders and activists, the APHC statement said these undemocratic tactics would not be able to cow down the resistance leadership.
