JKLF (R) welcomes HRW’s statement
Srinagar, June 7: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (R) Chairman Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bita Karatey and senior vice-chairman Javid Ahmad Mir on Tuesday welcomed the statement of Human Rights Watch and demanded resolution of the Kashmir dispute according to the aspirations of Kashmiris.
The Front leaders while welcoming the HRW’s statement maintained that Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute. Meanwhile, the Front leaders paid glowing tributes to those who were killed in past three years in the Valley.
“The warm blood of hundreds of Kashmiri youth during peaceful movements from 2008 to 2010 has put across a loud and clear message to the international community seeking its intervention to resolve Kashmir dispute in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of Kashmiris,” they said.
“The atmosphere of uncertainty will continue to prevail till New Delhi continues to hold Kashmir and nobody knows when the situation changes and what turn it will it take. However, it is clear that the eruption of 2010 mass movement was the natural reaction to the killing of three innocent youth in Machil sector by army and other innocents like Wamik Farooq, Inayat and Tufail Mattoo in the Valley,” they added.
They demanded immediate release of all the political detainees including pro-freedom leaders and activists.
