Hurriyat Conference (M) denounces ‘bulk’ arrests of religious scholars, resistance leaders
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has strongly denounced the ongoing “bulk” arrests of religious scholars, resistance leaders, and activists and termed the crackdown as the ultimate highhandedness of the present authorities to weaken the ongoing peaceful Kashmir struggle.
The Hurriyat Conference said that this all was being done under a well-thought-out plan which is “getting exposed with each passing day.”
“Conducting nocturnal raids on the homes of resistance leaders and activists, and launching the intense crackdown across Kashmir that results in the ultimate harassment of youth and people seems to be a move to divert the ongoing Kashmir struggle but those behind this conspiracy should read writing on the wall that such ploys are destined to fail,” a spokesman of the amalgam said in a statement.
The Hurriyat Conference also paid rich tributes to the armed youth killed in an encounter at Kulgam district with the government forces stating that youth of Kashmir are being pushed to the wall due to the ultimate oppression being unleashed by the forces and they are left with the no choice other than to pick up arms as the situation in Kashmir is going from bad to worse.
The Hurriyat Conference said that because of the lingering Kashmir dispute and the New Delhi’s stubborn approach, people of this region are being caught in a vicious cycle of oppression and repression and there is hardly any day when people don’t shoulder the coffin of their loved ones.
“It said that time has come when New Delhi must shun its approach and take concrete steps to resolve the vexed dispute.”
