Srinagar, April 26, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC) leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir National Front, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, has congratulated the people of South Kashmir for rejecting the Indian election drama.
Nayeem Ahmad Khan, who is under house arrest, in a statement issued in Srinagar appealed to the people of central and north Kashmir to follow the footprints of South Kashmiri brethren and totally boycott the farcical elections on April 30 and May 7 respectively.
“The people of South Kashmir proved that Kashmiris are mature to safeguard their political interests and honour the great sacrifices of their martyrs. Had the pro-freedom leadership been allowed to campaign freely against the so-called polls the result would have been even better,” Nayeem Khan said.
He added that rejection of election drama by the people of South Kashmir was an eye-opener for those paid agents of India, who were working against the freedom struggle from Srinagar to New Delhi.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of United Jihad Council, Syed Salahuddin, addressing leaders of the UJC hailed the people of South Kashmir for staying away from electoral exercise and said that Kashmiris had yet again conveyed a strong message to India as well as the international community that the freedom movement was dearer to them and they could never think of betraying the supreme sacrifices rendered by Kashmiri martyrs.
He said that despite enormous pressure, arbitrary detention of Hurriyet leaders, deception and deceit and use of brute force by Indian authorities and its paid agents Kashmiri people proved that they were ready to render every sacrifice to achieve the cherished goal
Extending heartfelt gratitude to Kashmiri people for boycotting Lok Saba polls the UJC chief termed the poll boycott as a great success of people. Salahuddin also condemned the use of brute force by police against Journalists and peaceful protesters.
