Srinagar, August 06 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik has appealed to the world community to take serious note of the ongoing Indian state terrorism in the territory.
Muhammad Yasin Malik in a media interview in Srinagar strongly condemned the Indian authorities for holding the entire population of Palhallan hostage in the holy month of Ramadan. He said that the reign of killings and arrests unleashed by Indian troops and police personnel would not deter the Kashmiris from raising voice for their birthright to self-determination.
The veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement urged the people of all districts of Jammu region to take to the streets on Eid day in protest against the harassment of Muslim population by the Indian army-backed members of so-called village defence committees.
Meanwhile, pro-freedom leaders and civil society members through a unanimously-passed resolution at an Iftar dinner hosted by the veteran leader at his Hyderpora residence demanded immediate removal of restrictions on the free movement of octogenarian leader.
Senior APHC leader, Shabbir Ahmad Shah in a statement in Srinagar said that the hands of India army and police were soaked with blood of the innocent people of occupied Kashmir.
The Jammu Kashmir Peoples Movement in a statement issued in Rajouri said that any effort aimed at dividing Jammu and Kashmir would be opposed tooth and nail.
On the other hand, Shab-e-Qadr was observed all over occupied Kashmir with great religious zeal and fervour. People offered nightlong prayers and recited the Holy Quran in mosques and shrines across the territory. However, clashes erupted between the youth and Indian armed forces during anti-India protest demonstrations in Nowhatta and Khanyar areas of Srinagar on the night.
