Srinagar: Condemning the on-the-spot barbaric killing of yet another youth, Danish Manzoor at the hands of trigger-happy Indian forces at Nadihal, Rafiabad, Hurriyat (M) spokesman Wednesday said for achieving the right to self determination the sacrifices rendered by people especially our youth bleeds our hearts but strengthens our resolve.
The barbaric aggression on people demonstrating peacefully across the valley in Rafiabad, Sopore, Nadihal, Pattan, Ajas, Sadnara Bandipora, Dooru, Islamabad and different areas of Srinagar including Batamaloo, Firdousabad and Shehar-e-Khas and use of tear smoke shells, pepper guns and pellet guns on the people including women, is highly deplorable APHC spokesman said .
Such tactics would not force people into submission and giving up on their rights as they are committed to achieving their goal.
Condemning the raids on Jamaat-e-Islami office and carrying arrests out of Jamaat leaders and workers, the spokesman said such acts of revenge expose the authorities and put their claims of democracy to shame.
Commending the moral courage and conviction of journalists like Naseer Ahmed who quit working for an Indian news channel rather than fabricating anti Kashmir reports to suit Indian propaganda the spokesman said such acts are an example for us to emulate.
The spokesman also ridiculed the beating up and harassing of media persons by government forces and said despite working in a hostile environment, Kashmiri media persons were dispatching their duties professionally and with passion highlighting the pathetic human rights situation in Kashmir and state terrorism unleashed on people.
