Hurriyat Conference (M) on Sunday decried continuous restrictions in Kashmir and "suppressive" tactics adopted by forces against people for the past 72 days. 

"We condemn imposition of restrictions, declared and undeclared curfew for the 72nd continuous day, oppressive and suppressive tactics adopted by the government forces resulting in grave human rights violations and killings of civilians across Kashmir and Chenab valley," Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said in a statement.  

"Forces have created havoc in Wusan Kangan, Theed Harwan, Bandipora and Srinagar's areas of Nowhatta, Nawab Bazaar, Nalamar Road and Safa Kadal since Saturday evening. They have entered into residential houses, beat up inmates and ransacked household belongings," the spokesperson alleged. 

"When forces fired pellets and critically injured a mentally challenged youth, Showkat Ahmad Misgar, they fired pellets on those who were trying to take him to the hospital for treatment. These tactics will not let the people of Jammu Kashmir give up their right to self determination," it said. 

"We condemn mischievous activities of communal forces in Chenab valley, especially during the Eid Ul Adha and thereafter, as a consequence of which curfew continues to be imposed there. Such forces were deliberately targeting and harassing Muslims in the region. The brave Muslims of the region have never succumbed to the machinations of these elements and continue to protest against the atrocities perpetuated on them. People of Kashmir were, are and will always support their fellow Kashmiris in resisting injustice and fighting for their rights," the statement added.
