24 September, 2012
Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown will be observed on Thursday on the occasion of the Indian President, Pranab Mukherjee's visit to the territory.
Call for the shutdown has been given by the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, to convey the message to Pranab Mukherjee that India had no legal and moral justification to continue its illegal hold on Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement issued in Srinagar, today, Syed Ali Gilani asked the president to fulfil the promises made by the Indian rulers with the Kashmiris to give them an opportunity to decide their future by themselves.
Addressing a meeting of his party activists at Aharbal in Shopian, senior leader of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, urged New Delhi to give up intransigence and resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris' aspirations for ensuring permanent peace in South Asia.
People staged forceful demonstrations at Goshbug in Naidkhai area of Bandipora after a throat-slit body of a missing youth was recovered.
The Indian police did not allow Hurriyet leaders and relatives to meet the illegally detained Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Aasiya Andrabi and other activists of the party at Rambagh Police Station in Srinagar.
