03 September, 2012
SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, has said that India must accept the reality that it will not succeed to continue its illegal hold on Kashmir for long and the Kashmiris will get rid of its bondage soon.
Addressing a meeting of his party activists in Srinagar, today, Shabbir Ahmed Shah said, Kashmir is a political dispute and it should be resolved politically. He maintained that the permanent peace in South Asia and cordial relations between Pakistan and India could not be established without resolving the lingering dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations. Shabbir Shah said that the Hurriyet Conference was the custodian of Kashmiri martyrs and it would not allow their sacrifices to go waste.
APHC leaders, Nayeem Ahmed Khan and Ghulam Ahmed Mir in their separate statements urged the Kashmiris to beware of the cultural aggression unleashed by India to change the mindset of new Kashmiri generation and take it away from the ongoing liberation movement.
Legal experts while addressing a workshop in Srinagar called for formulating a cohesive strategy for combating the acts of violence used by the puppet administration against civilians in the occupied territory. They included noted Indian lawyer, Colin Gonsalvez, Professor Gul Mohammad Wani, Professor Noor Mohammad Bilal and Dr Abdul Maajid.
The Indian police arrested the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik along with other leaders of his party when he was leading a rally in Badroo area of Kulgam. The police also used brute force against the rally resulting in injuries to several people.
