“This is a barbaric act and we condemn it,” a Hurriyat (M) spokesman quoted his chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq as saying. He urged people to observe “civil curfew” on Tuesday. “People should stay indoors to express their resentment against the killing,” he added.
The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik described Wamiq’s killing as an “inhuman act.”

JKLF ( R ) CALLS FOR SHUTDOWN ON FEB 4
Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (R ) chairman Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bita Karate and senior vice-chairman Javid Ahmad Mir have called for shutdown on February 4, against what they called, “reign of terror unleashed by the armed forces against Kashmiris.”
The Front leaders while addressing a public gathering at Eid Gah here, where Wamiq Farooq Wani was laid to rest said, “A well planned strategy has been devised to carryout the genocide of Kashmiris.
