Srinagar, September 15, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM), a constituent of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference, has paid glowing tributes to the youth who were martyred by Indian police during 2010 mass uprising in Mendhar area of Poonch district.
The JKPM spokesman, Umar Arshad Inqalabi, in a statement issued in Jammu said that the Indian police had used brute force against pro-freedom demonstrations on September 15, 2010, killing four students, Arshad Khan, Baghdad Hussain Shah, Shameem Ahmad and Alamdar Shah. “Dozen others sustained injuries due to state-sponsored violence on innocent people. This sold-blooded murder of youth is testimony to the war crimes committed by Indian forces in Kashmir,” he stated.
He said that despite peaceful path followed by the Kashmiris to secure their inalienable right to self-determination, New Delhi was brutally suppressing their struggle by murdering the youth. He maintained that lacs of Kashmir people had laid down their lives for the Kashmir cause and their sacrifices would not be allowed to go waste.
The JKPM spokesman pointed out that unresolved Kashmir dispute was the biggest hurdle in the way of peace and progress in South Asia. He said that the dispute could be settled through tripartite talks involving Pakistan, India and the genuine Kashmiri leadership.
