Hurriyat factions, JKLF, others call for strike on Wednesday against Sopore killings
All the major separatist groups in Jammu and Kashmir Monday called for a state-wide shutdown on June 17 to protest the killings of civilians in north Kashmir.
The decision was taken after consultations among the leaders of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), and both the factions of Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
"These kinds of killings are not acceptable to us and today all resistance parties have after mutual consultations decided to resist these kinds of killings and oppressive attacks," said JKLF Chief Yasin Malik.
The leaders, Hurriyat (G) said, also appealed the people to reach Sopore on 19 June, Friday, to protest the bloodshed of the innocent and common people by the "secret agencies" and to express solidarity with the affected families, Hurriyat (G) said in a statement issued here today.
