Call for complete shutdown in IHK tomorrow
04 September, 2012
SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown will be observed, tomorrow, in protest against the Indian design to change the demographic composition of the territory.
Call for the strike has been given by the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani and supported by other Hurriyet leaders.
The veteran leader in a statement said that New Delhi had increased the duration of Amarnath yatra and was bringing a large number of Hindu pilgrims to occupied Kashmir. He said that all this was being done by India to strengthen its already initiated process of changing the population ratio of Jammu and Kashmir.
Senior leader of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Professor Abdul Ghani Butt in a media interview in Srinagar urged Pakistan and India to take concrete measures for settlement of the Kashmir dispute to bring peace, stability and economic growth to the South Asian region. He emphasised that the Hurriyet was not against the dialogue process, but the talks should be meaningful, result-oriented and all-inclusive involving Pakistan, India and genuine leadership of the Kashmiris.
The JKLF-Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, in a media interview in Srinagar said that Kashmir should be at the centre stage in the upcoming Pak-India talks.
