Hurriyat Conference (M) today said New Delhi's 'iron fist and repressive policy' was the main reason for the youth to opt for armed struggle as a means of resistance in Jammu and Kashmir.
Paying rich tributes to the Hizbul Mujahideen militant Musavir Hassan Wani of Dalipora, Pulwama, who was slain in a gunfight with government forces at Kangan, Pulwama, on Friday, the Hurriyat spokesman, in a statement said, "Kashmiri youth are sacrificing their lives for a great and sacred cause."
He said, "It seems that Delhi doesn't want to resolve Kashmir. I wants to prolong its resolution by using its military might on the peace loving people of Kashmir."
The spokesman strongly condemned the use of 'brute' force on protesters at Dalipora, Pulwama, and arrest of several people at Palhallan, Pattan.
"The government, through its forces, is leaving no stone unturned by adopting all the undemocratic means to break the resolve of people, which is highly condemnable," the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, the spokesman strongly denounced the continued house detention of amalgam chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
"They are once again disallowing him from carrying out his social, religious and political duties," the spokesman said, adding that "The move is not just political vendetta but a plan to keep Mirwaiz away from people to create a distance between him and the masses."
