Srinagar, October 23 (KNO) : Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Tuesday said that while the unflinching belief of people in their struggle is the greatest source of strength for us all, one other thing that can unnerve even a great adversity is the strength in unity.“So all of us have to unite from one end of the spectrum to the other, like we did on the 35A assault and launch a joint agitation against the continuous barbaric killings and massacres of our youth under the garb of CASO,” Mirwaiz said. Earlier, Mirwaiz was detained by police when he broke the cordon around his house to lead the march towards Lal Chowk as per JRL program to protest the Kulgam killings, a spokesman said.A large contingent of police posted outside his house and in the lanes leading to it were barricaded preventing Hurriyat activists and media persons from reaching his house to join in the march, Spokesman said in a statement issued to KNO.Before his arrest, Mirwaiz said that “Kashmir has been turned into a slaughter house where Kashmiri’s are killed with impunity, as part of a state policy of crushing us to contain our struggle for self determination and continue our subjugation.” “Besides, severe repression on Kashmiri’s sells well in Indian electoral market for the rulers,” he said, adding that “a nation which kills small children and pregnant women has lost all sense of humanity and morality and to ask them for probes or action against perpetrators of killings is travesty of justice and humiliating the victims.”Mirwaiz said that since 1990 itself Govt of India declared a War against Kashmiris and since then in this one sided war multiple massacres have taken place across length and breadth of the valley the latest being at Kulgam. He said to the killers age, gender healthy or ill does not matter , as children women old young all have been killed by Indian state be it child Uzair Mushtaq minor Mohd Mukeem or youth Javed Lone. “To the Indian state all Kashmiri’s are their target. To control the territory of J&K all are in their range,” he said.Mirwaiz said “going by the totalitarian outlook of New Delhi and its contempt for human rights of Kashmiri’s exhibited in the methods being employed to kill civilians and destroy homes and properties including missiles and heavy machine guns, that day may not be far when we may be bombed out.”(KNO)
