Srinagar, May 30, 2016 (PPI-OT):In Islamabad, a two-day international Kashmir seminar will be held on Wednesday and Thursday to deliberate upon global dimensions of the Kashmir dispute and current Indian plans to suppress Kashmir liberation movement.
The seminar has been organized by the Mirpur University of Science and Technology. Those who have been invited to attend the function included Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Kashmir Bar President Mian Abdul Qayoom, Aasiya Andrabi and Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai. However, they would not be able to attend the event because Indian authorities have refused to give them travel documents. Around a dozen Hurriyet leaders, lawyers and journalists from occupied Kashmir have arrived in Pakistan to attend the seminar.
The All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, termed the coalition administration of PDP and BJP as the biggest enemy of the people of Kashmir, which has started working on the Indian plan to deprive people of their land and property.
The authorities put Altaf Ahmad Shah and Ayaz Akbar under house arrest, while shifted Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik to central jail Srinagar. Meanwhile, complete shutdown was observed in Shopian district, today, to mark the seventh martyrdom anniversary of the two Kashmiri women, Aasiya and Neelofar, who were abducted, raped and subsequently murdered by Indian men in uniform in 2009. Call for the shutdown was given by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani.
A rally was held in Shopian against the authorities’ failure to arrest the men in uniform who perpetrated the dastardly and shameful act in the town. Hurriyet leaders including Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Molvi Bashir Ahmad, Ghulam Muhammad Khan Sopori, Muhammad Yasin Atai, Bilal Siddiqui, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar, Farooq Touheedi, Muhammad Ramzan Khan, activists of Democratic Freedom Party, Muslim League and Muslim Khawateen Markaz also participated in the rally. Kashmir Tehreek-e-Khawateen Chairperson Zamruda Habib also staged protest at Press Colony in Srinagar to demand arrest of the culprits.
