Chairperson of Dukhatarn-e-Millat, Aasiya Andrabi, on Saturday urged the government and non-government employees associations and trade unions to stand united with people and join the ongoing movement.

"All employees associations including EJAC, KUTA and others and all the trade unions must stand up and should join hands with the people of Jammu and Kashmir in their fight to seek freedom," she said in a statement.

She said that before defying any programme, these associations must keep in mind that in the past 22 days, at least 60 Kashmiris, including women have sacrificed their lives and more than 200 person have lost their eyesight. Besides thousands of others have been injured, she said. 

She said that these organisations shouldn't be intimidated by the threats by pro-India lobby and shouldn't violate any programmes announced by the pro-resistance leadership.

She said that since the martyrdom Burhan Muzaffar Wani, the people of Kashmir have taken the ongoing resistance movement to another level by offering a stiff resistance to the brutalities unleashed by the forces from the past 22 days.

"So we must remember, the spate of these killings and will only stop when we will unanimously resist the forcible control."

She called for a complete social boycott of the pro-India politicians and their activists as already announced by the resistance leadership.

She further appealed people to march to the Martyrs Graveyards in their respective areas and should pledge to take the movement, for which lakhs of Kashmiris have sacrificed their lives, to its logical conclusion.
