Srinagar, July 13: While paying tributes to July 13, 1931 martyrs, United Jihad Council Supremo Syed Salahuddin on Saturday condemned imposition of restrictions and arrest of pro-freedom leaders and activists in Kashmir.
“Imposition of restrictions on the movement of people as well as arrest of youth and leaders is condemnable,” the Hizb spokesman quoted Salahuddin as having said.
“The present pro-Indian leaders are more tyrannical than the 1931 autocratic Dogra rulers,” he added. (KNS)
