JRL calls for shutdown tomorrow, Shopian chalo on Wed Leadership to address gathering in Shopian

Srinagar, April 02 (KNS): Joint Resistance Leadership of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik said that the mayhem in Shopian In which 17 people were killed in one day is another gory episode of pain agony and torment that people of Kashmir are repeatedly subject to from time to time over the past thirty years by the military might of
GOI that has left more than one lakh Kashmiris dead and hundreds of thousands maimed injured and blinded. Kashmir has been turned a land of massacres and south of Kashmir especially Shopian, Tral, Pulwama, Kulgam and Anantnag into killing fields drenched in the blood of its natives mostly young boys. 
This is the same place where from the ruling PDP claims people voted for it and this is their response to that.
In a statement issued to KNS, JRL said that the vengeful way that bullets and pellets were showered on protesting people left four people dead on spot while more than 50 sustained critical bullet injuries and are battling for life in hospitals. More than 200 people have been hit by pellets many among them in their eyes which can lead to blindness as has been witnessed.
The scenes at the hospital are heart wrenching as the injured writhing in pain have horrific episodes of forces brutality to narrate. Houses have been blown up and raized to ground and even the owners have not been spared the bullet and killed. What is equally cruel and inhuman is that local resident Mushtaq Ahmed Thakur was used as a human shield by the Indian forces and was killed. 
JRL said that there is deep pain and anger among people as they witness killings of young boys who feel forced to take up arms as a means of resisting oppression and forcible control over their land. These young boys give up their studies and stake their future because of the lingering Kashmir dispute and the status quo over it due to GOI arrogance and stubbornness not to resolve it, and the resulting oppression pushes these young boys to take up arms to liberate their land. 
JRL said that GOI military approach to deal with the Kashmir dispute is consuming our next generation which is a matter of grave concern for all of us. They said that GOI should by now have fully realised that force and might will not deter people from pursuing their just cause even at the cost of their lives. GOI will have to engage with the dispute and give people their basic right to self determination. The sooner it is done the better it is for the whole region.
JRL said that the protest shut down over the mayhem in Shopian will continue tomorrow that is April 3rd and On Wednesday April 4 the entire Resistance and Hurriyat leadership will move towards Shopian to express solidarity with the people and offer condolences to the bereaved families who lost their loved ones. Leadership will also address a public rally in Shopian. People have been asked to peacefully protest Shopian killings at their local mosques after Zuhr Prayers.
JRL also said that the claims made by the agencies of the Ruling regime that leadership is now free to move stands completely exposed as within two days of it we were again put under arbitrary house arrest and Yasin Malik detained in jail. (KNS)

This isn’t about Article 35A or delimitation: Omar on operational alert of forces

Srinagar: Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah on Friday said that putting of Army and Airforce on high alert is about something very different and not about article 35A or delimitation.
Mr. Abdullah wrote on his Twitter handle, “What “on going situation” in Kashmir would require the army AND the Air Force to be put on alert? This isn’t about 35A or delimitation. This sort of alert, if actually issued, would be about something very different.”
