Innocent blood being spilled by Indian colonist forces in nooks and corners of Kashmir is nothing but state sponsored terrorism intended to crush Kashmiri resistance. What was the crime of little Andaleeb and why was she killed in cold blood : Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL)

Srinagar 09th July 2018 (KNO) : Innocent blood being spilled by Indian colonist forces in nooks and corners of Kashmir is nothing but state sponsored terrorism intended to crush Kashmiri resistance. What was the sin of little Andaleeb and why was she killed ruthlessly? This was stated by Joint resistance leaders’ Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a press statement issued today.

On JRL call, leaders and activist today staged a peaceful protest against killing spree of innocents Martyr Andaleeb, Martyr Shakir Ahmad Khanday and Martyr Irshad Ahmad at Raidwani Kulgam on 7th July 2018. Leaders and activists of JRL along with people from many walks of life including students, traders, employees and well-wishers of martyrs gathered outside JKLF office at Abi-Guzar this afternoon and staged a peaceful protest against the brutal killings of innocents Martyr at Raidwani Kulgam.

Holding placards depicting photographs of those martyred and raising slogans against growing Indian terrorism, the participants of this protest marched towards Lal chowk. Police and forces in large numbers had cordoned the area and sealed the way going towards city center and when protesters tried to cross these barricades, police using excessive force arrested various leaders and activists including Advocate Bashir Ahmed Butt, Ghulam Nabi Zaki, Umar Adil Dar, Imtiyaz Ahmed Shah, Bashir Ahmad kashmiri, Abdul Rashid Lone,Syed Imtiyaz Haider, Farooq Ahmed Sodagar, Farooq Ahmad Sheikh, Ghulam Mohammad Dar, Imtiyaz Ahmed Dar, Mohammad Maqbool Tiploo, Basharat Ahmed Butt , Earlier this peaceful protest was addressed by various leaders including Advocate Bashir Ahmad Butt, Ghulam Nabi Zaki and Umar Adil Dar who strongly condemned the ongoing massacres in Kashmir especially south Kashmir.

While condemning the continued arrest of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and other and house arrest of Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq, JRL leaders said that leaders like Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi are still in police custody which is highly reprehensible. Meanwhile joint resistance leadership (JRL) comprising of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a joint statement have said that Innocent blood being spilled by Indian colonist forces in nooks and corners of Kashmir is nothing but state sponsored terrorism intended to crush Kashmiri resistance. Leaders said that Indian trigger happy forces first kill innocents and then legitimize these killings by calling the slain as stone throwers.

Same was done in case of Raidwani killings where three innocents including a 15 year old girl were butchered under the same pretext. We want to ask these killers that why Innocent Andaleeb was killed in cold blood. What was her crime and did not she also deserve life? Leaders said that Indian trigger happy forces and police are deployed to Kill Kashmiris as they enjoy immunity from prosecution.

Indian forces and army soldiers have turned into blood sucking vampires for Kashmiris and this is a consequence of the immunity provided to them by pro-India Kashmiri politicians, assembly, parliament and Panchayat members, their parties who legislate and implement laws like AFSPA to shelter these criminals and their crimes. JRL leaders said that Kashmir has been turned into a slaughter house where the lives of young and old, men, women and children are target of Indian bullets.

Though this genocide is going on from last many decades but the way Indian soldiers at the behest of their political masters have expedited this killing spree has turned the situation seriously horrible, said JRL. They said that Kashmiris cannot be cowed down by criminal acts of Indian colonist forces and our resistance struggle will continue at every cost. Leaders said that on one hand Indian occupational forces are killing innocents including girls in Kashmir and on the other hand international community seems to remain in deep slumber. We want to ask international community that isn’t the blood of innocent 15 year Andaleeb enough to awaken their conscience.

Aren’t Kashmiris are part of humanity and doesn’t they also have human rights which need to be protected? It is worth to mention that today’s protest was attended by JRL leaders including Advocate Bashir Ahmad Butt of JKLF, Ghulam Nabi Zaki from APHC (M) , Umar Adil Dar of Aphc (G), Ghulam Rasool Dar Eidi, Mushtaq Ahmad Sofi, Noor Muhammad Kalwal, Sheikh Abdul Rashid, Muhammad Saleem Zargar, Bashir Ahamd Kashmiri, Hilal Ahmad War, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Abdul Rashid Hakim , Farooq Ahmad Sodagar, Muhammad Sideeq shah, Bashir Ahmad Boya, Abdul Rashid Lone, Nisar Hussain Rather, Imran Ahmad, Bashir indrabi, Farooq Ahmad Sheikh, Muhammad Zaman Mir, Javed Ahmad Zargar, Mushtaq Ahamd Khan, professor Javed, Ashraf Bin Salam, Gulzar Ahmad Pahalwan, Ghulam Muhammad Dar, Meraj Ud Din Parray, Abdul Rashid Untoo, Abdul Majeed Wani, Ghulam Nabi Najar, Ghulam Hassan Mir, Jafar Kashmiri, Muhammad Siddeq Hazari, Imtiyaz Ahmad Shah
