Gilani, Mirwaiz, Malik, others denounce killing of student

Srinagar, November 08, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chief, Muhammad Yasin Malik, and other Hurriyet leaders and organizations have strongly condemned the cold blooded murder of an innocent student, Gowhar Ahmed Dar, by Indian troops. Gowhar Ahmed Dar was killed, yesterday, when Indian troops fired teargas shells on peaceful demonstrators at Zainakote in Srinagar. The demonstrators were protesting against Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s visit to the occupied territory.

Syed Ali Gilani, who is under house arrest in Srinagar, in a statement expressed grief over the killing. He said, “It is a gift on Indian Prime Minister Narrinder Modi’s visit. The killing of innocent people particularly teenage students has been a norm and a tradition of Indian occupational forces in Jammu and Kashmir.” The veteran leader said that pro-India political parties, particularly PDP, were directly responsible for the innocent killings in occupied Kashmir because they had always played the role of advocates of Indian military occupation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who is also under house arrest, in a statement denounced in strong terms the brutal killing of Gowhar Ahmed Dar. He said that on one hand, Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and the puppet Chief Minister of the occupied territory, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, talked non-stop about empowering youth of Kashmir, but on the other, trigger-happy Indian troops missed no opportunity in spilling the innocent blood of Kashmiri youth.

Yasin Malik, who is under illegal detention, in his statement termed the killing as another crime committed by Modi-Mufti alliance. He said that this was another gift given by these brutal killers to the Kashmiris. APHC leader, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, in a statement strongly denouncing the brutal murder of Gowhar Ahmed Dar deplored that on one side, Indian Prime Minister talked about humanity and democracy and on the other, Indian armed forces continued to kill innocent Kashmiris.

The spokesman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League, in a statement in Srinagar said that the killing of innocent student had exposed the real face of Indian rulers. The High Court Bar Association of the occupied territory also strongly condemned the killing of Gowhar Ahmed Dar.
