Day in and day out Kashmiri youth are being detained and tortured

Keeping up with the tradition, Hurriyat (M) Wednesday said the incoming Jumat-ul-Vida will be observed as Youm-e-Qudus and Youm-e-Kashmir in both parts of Kashmir.

The decision was taken during an executive council member meeting convened by the party chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

The participants resolved that the biggest gathering in connection with the Youm-e-Kashmir would be led by Mirwaiz at historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar. Mirwaiz would throw light on the current political struggle of Kashmiris and would also present a memorandum for the public approval.

Hurriyat (M) expressed concern over the nocturnal raids and force used by police and troops to detain and interrogate Kashmiri youth, the spokesperson said in a statement. “Such state aggression would only complicate the problem instead of solving it.  The state sponsored terrorism would enrage the people more, and government would be itself responsible if situation takes an ugly turn,” he said.

Coming down heavily on National conference, Hurriyat (M) said this party was dividing Kashmiris for its electoral benefits.

“Day in and day out Kashmiri youth are being detained and tortured and when people stand up against state aggression they are arrested and detained in nocturnal raids,” the spokesperson added.

He said NC was involved in the worst form of political retribution in Kashmir and has always put restrictions and curbs on separatists’ political and religious activities.

Hurriyat (M) also appealed people of Kashmir in general and to people of Budgam district in particular to maintain unity at all costs and be vigilant of those forces who are trying to divide Kashmir on sectarian lines.
