Srinagar: Stressing on discipline and maturity, Hurriyat (M) on Tuesday asked people to resume businesses after 6 pm and said that those defying the programme issued by resistance leadership were “anti-movement”.
In a statement issued here today, Hurriyat said that at this crucial juncture of the resistance movement it is incumbent upon all people especially the youth to act with discipline, maturity and responsibility so that no harm is caused to our sacred cause,and no one is allowed to give it a bad name.
On expected lines, the statement said, agencies had infiltrated elements into the movement to sabotage the programmes of the unified resistance leadership,spread disillusionment and create division and discord among the people on sectarian lines.
“Staying alert and defeating such forces is the collective responsibility of people at this time.”
“It is also important that hooliganism of all sorts is discouraged,” it added.
It appreciated the role of the local print and electronic media in highlighting the atrocities carried out in Kashmir and reporting the facts even at times risking their lives in the line of duty.
“It is important that no hurdles are not created for the media people in discharging their professional duties and they are not harassed as some reports suggest,” said the statement.
Expressing concern over reports of unauthorised and illegal constructions coming up at various places especially on the Dal and foreshore road, the organisation warned such people to stop their activities forthwith and asked people to take such shameless people to task.
Condemning the harassment and arrest spree of the youth and night raids in Seer Hamdan, the resistance groups said people cannot be cowed down by such oppressive tactics.
The unified resistance leadership also maintained that people as per the programme should open their shops from 6 pm onwards and said people who would defy these programmes are anti movement.
