Srinagar: Terming the bloodshed being carried out against the Kashmiris by government forces as a policy allegedly based on political vendetta, the joint resistance leadership, comprising of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik Saturday said that the people of Kashmir were facing the worst form of state sponsored terrorism.
The resistance leaders stated that the state was hard trying to push the people, demanding freedom, towards wall by subjecting them to repression and carrying out bloodshed against them. The leaders stated that the state has resorted to military build-up in Kashmir to impose the silence of graveyard in Kashmir.
Meanwhile, following the programme of resistance leadership, a joint protest rally was taken outside the historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar to protest the killing of civilian Ghulam Hassan Bhat of Panzgam Kupwara and the unabated state sponsored terrorism in Kashmir, a statement issued said.

Terming the statement of VHP leader, Praveen Togadia that Kashmir should be carpet bombed as communal fascism, the resistance leadership stated that such poisonous statements by right wing Hindutva forces have been their tradition.
They stated that Kashmiris were not fearful of such hollow statements which carry no weight but poison only", it added.
