Make Sopur Chalo a success: Mirwaiz
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 26: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has once again urged people to reach Sopur on Monday to express solidarity with the martyrs.
“Make Sopur Chalo programme a success to demonstrate unwavering association with the freedom movement,” Mirwaiz said in a statement.
“There is no let up in the innocent killings and forces are enjoying unbridled powers,” he added.
Mirwaiz termed firing on protesters at Sopur in which two youths, Shakeel Ahmad Ganai and Firdous Ahmad Kakroo, were killed as gruesome. “Troopers opening fire directly at peaceful protesters shows that there is no accountability and they have been given a license to kill,” he added.
Mirwaiz expressed his sympathies with the families of the martyred youth and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured persons.
Mirwaiz expressed anguish over crackdown on pro-freedom leaders and youth. “There is no democracy prevalent in Jammu and Kashmir. Authorities are leaving no stone unturned to muzzle the voice of Kashmiris,” he said. “We will continue to remain steadfast on our resolve come what may.”
Meanwhile, a delegation of Hurriyat activists comprising Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Hakeem Abdul Rashid, Ghulam Qadir Beigh, Abdul Majeed Wani, Farooq Ahmad Sodagar, Mir Wahid Zaman and Feroze Ahmad Bhat visited SKIMS, Soura, and SMHS Hospital, Srinagar, and enquired about the health of injured persons. “The condition of one of the injured, Mehraj-ud-Din Tanki of Channa Khan, Sopur, is very critical,” a Hurriyat spokesman said in a statement.
