Military operations can’t break Kashmiris’ resolve: Rehmani
Islamabad, October 22 (KMS): The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League (JKPFL), Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has strongly condemned the killing of two Kashmiri youth and burning of houses in a military operation in Sopore on Saturday.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad prayed eternal peace for the martyred youth, Muzammil Ameen and Abdullah.
He maintained that the army operations in Kashmir could not break the people’s resolve to fight for the liberation of their homeland from the Indian occupation. He said that the present world indifference to Kashmir had encouraged India to play its horrible games in Kashmir. He urged the United Nations to fulfil its responsibilities and force the occupation troops to stop their frequent bloody operations against the peaceful inhabitants of the territory.
The JKPFL Chairman also paid glowing tributes to the martyrs of Bijebehara, who were ruthlessly killed by the occupation troops on October 22, 1993, during peaceful pro-freedom demonstrations.
He said, “Kashmir is full of tragedies and every home has a story of military terror and torture in the past 22 years. Thousands have been martyred, forcibly disappeared, women molested and many families rendered homeless under the Indian army’s sweeping powers of search, catch and kill policy.”
He warned that no bilateral negotiations could succeed unless the draconian laws were repealed and basic human rights and civil liberties of the Kashmiris were fully honoured.
