Separatists Ask People To Offer Funeral Prayers In Absentia For Slain Youth


SRINAGAR: Resistance leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik Thursday appealed Imams of the Masjids to lead Nimaz-e-Jinaza in absentia for the 40 young brave hearts who were snatched from us by “the cruel and inhuman Indian forces and local police” in the last week after the killing of militant commander Burhan Wani and his associates.

In a joint statement issued to KNS, they appealed them to “lead the protests against the brutalities of the men in uniform.”

Leaders have condemned the use of brutal force against the protesters and compelling the traders and transporters not to support the ongoing struggle.

They have appealed people not to fall prey to the “nefarious designs of the Indian imperialism or their local stooges and follow the combined program in letter and spirit”.

Leaders have affirmed their resolve to lead this movement to its logical end no matter “how brutal and cruel Indian aggression may be.

“People have been assured not to panic but show steadfastness, dedication and discipline so that any of the ill intentions of the enemy are not allowed to derail our struggle for the goal of self-determination,” they said.

Leaders have assured the “nation that we have been fighting the Indian aggression and brutalism for decades and now we are facing do or die situation which demands utmost discipline and determination”.

They further said, “we will never succumb to any pressure as we believe ours is the just cause and we will fight to achieve it till our last breath.”

Commenting on the more troops from Delhi leaders said that not only three battalions “even if India sends whole of its army to Kashmir we will fight them tooth and nail and like always this time also they will be defeated”.

“It is a long and continuous struggle and we need to be prepared for a prolonged but definite phase now. Local Bait-ul-Maals need to be activated and needy people especially victims of the present turmoil need our utmost attention,” they said.
