Islamabad/ Srinagar Dec 4: Various separatist and militant organizations have expressed anger over TADA court awarding a life sentence to two Kashmiri youth Sheikh Nazir Ahmed and Showkat Ahmed Khan.  
 The Chairman of United Jihad Council (UJC) Syed Salahuddin in a statement said that such tactics cannot break the resolve of Kashmiris. “The court verdict is an attempt to harass the people associated with the ongoing struggle”, the UJC chief said.
 He urged the separatist leadership, Bar Council and members of the civil society to join hands to save the Kashmiris languishing in various jails.
 Hailing sacrifices of Sheikh Nazir Ahmed, Showkat Ahmed Khan and Farooq Ahmed Chichoo, UJC chairman said that the sacrifices rendered by Kashmiri youth won’t go in waste.
 Salahuddin urged the world human rights organizations to take cognizance of the recent verdict regarding the life imprisonment of Kashmiri youths.

 In a statement Geelani said: “We support the strike call given for Dec 10. We appeal the people of Kashmir to express solidarity with the Kashmiri prisoners who are becoming fresh targets,” he said. “It is a moral responsibility on us to convey a message to Government of India that Kashmiri people won’t tolerate this.”
 Meanwhile, Hurriyat(M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement said “Announcing life sentences against the people who have already served 22 years in prison is not fair”.
 Chairman of National Front Nayeem Khan extended support to the protest programme announced by the JKLF Chief Muhammad Yasin Malik against awarding of life sentence to two Kashmiris. “We support the JKLF’s protest and strike call,” Khan said. 
 Muslim League Jammu Kashmir acting general secretary Abdul Ahad Parra Tuesday expressed anger over the TADA court verdict. “New Delhi is trying to break the resolve of people by awarding lifers to their leaders,” he added.
