JRL calls shutdown on November 22 against killing of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat leader

Condemning the killing of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat leader Hafizullah Mir, Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) called for a shutdown on November 22 and protests after Friday prayers in Kashmir.

"JRL has announced a day long complete shutdown against this barbarism and inhuman act on Thursday 22nd November 2018 and peaceful protests after Friday prayers on 23rd November to show the solidarity with the movement and martyrs, who laid their lives to end this age old slavery," said a statement issued today.

JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik expressed grief and strongly condemned this "cowardly and barbaric action by the government agencies", added the statement.

They said that Indian rulers through their local collaborators have always played "beastic role of eliminating political activists, who raise their voice against this unholy and unjustified forced occupation."

They said Mir Hafizullah was a highly educated, sensible and visionary pro-freedom leader and his sincerity, dedication and sacrifices have earned him a distinguished place and status in the state political circles especially South Kashmir.

They said in every mass uprising, particularly in 2016, he played a pivotal and central role for about five months to sustain that movement and gave a very tough time to the government forces and finally they trapped him in a deceitful manner.
