Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik who were caged on Monday said that that imposing curbs to prevent Eidgah rally and barring the leadership from reaching the venue signifies defeat by the government.

In a statement issued here, the JRL said caging the leadership and imposing tough curbs in downtown on the eve of martyrdom anniversaries of Shaheed-e-Milat Mirwaiz Moulvi Muhammad Farooq, Shaheed-e-Hurriyat Khawaja Abdul Gani Lone and martyrs of Hawal massacre deserves strong condemnation. 

“Entire nation observed the 28th martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed-e-Milat and over 60 martyrs of Hawal massacre and 16th anniversary of Shaheed-e-Hurriyat today and remembered the sacrifices offered by the great leaders and the people of Kashmir,” the leaders said in a statement.

 The leadership said that the complete shutdown observed by the people across the Valley amplifies their commitment to the mission of the martyrs and the ongoing movement and their pledge that no matter how tough the repression goes, people will continue to strive for their rights till the final goal is achieved.

“We strongly condemn in strongest words the stringent curbs imposed in entire downtown by the government to foil the Eidgah rally where leaders and people would pay tributes to the martyrs and reaffirm their pledge,” they said. “Government is afraid of people’s power and commitment towards the freedom struggle and that makes them take these totalitarian measures .The ruling regime doesn’t have the courage to face us on political turf.” 

The leadership said that no matter how far Delhi and its local supporters go in unleashing repression upon people, masses have shown that they will continue to follow the cause for which the martyrs sacrificed their life. “People today showed again they will at all cost resist the New Delhi’s military might with full strength,” they said. 

The leadership expressed its regret and anguish over the ruling regimes measure of barring congregational fateh khawani at the martyr’s graveyard since the past eight years by use of extreme force and imposing strict curbs in majority of downtown areas. 

“Such inhuman measure exposes the stooges and their masters that they do not even allow us to offer Fateh for our dead and visit their graveyard on their martyrdom day,” they said.  They also denounced the rulers for keeping the entire downtown under curfew for the past three days even during the holy month of Ramadan. 

Meanwhile, dozens of resistance leaders including Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Engineer Hilal Ahmed War, and others were placed under house detention. AAC leaders and activists that include Muhammad Shafi Khan, Advocate Yasir Dalal and others tried to take out a protest march from Aali Masjid towards martyrs’ graveyard but they were prevented and pushed back. However, in majority of shrines, mosques and Imam Baras across Kashmir, tributes were paid to Shaheed-e-Milat, Shaheed-e-Hurriyat and martyrs of Hawal after Zuhr prayers.
