Hurriyat Conference (G), at a meeting of its executive council held here today with its general secretary Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, backed the election boycott call given by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL).

Extending its full support to the boycott call for the upcoming panchayat and municipal elections given by the JRL, the meeting, according to Hurriyat statement, described it "quite mandatory for the success of Kashmir movement".

"The election boycott formula is a tool in the hands of the people of Kashmir to blunt and counter the propaganda that by participating in the elections the people of Kashmir are contented," the members said. They also condemned the prolonging detention of Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani. 

"We strongly condemn the obduracy adopted by New Delhi to suppress the people's popular movement with military might and iron fists," the Hurriyat spokesman, quoted the members as having said at the meeting, resolving take the ongoing movement to its logical end.

The meeting paid rich tributes to the killed youth Fayaz Ahmad Wani of Kulgam at the hands of forces, demanding a high level probe through international war tribunal to bring the killers of the innocent people to justice for their 'involvement in war crimes'.

The meeting condemned the gruesome rape and murder of an innocent minor girl Muskan of Bonyar, Uri, in a mysterious condition, demanding judicial probe into this heart wrenching incident. 

"The galloping crime rate in our society is a cause of deep concern for all of us. Saner people should rise to the occasion and foil the designs of the authorities to turn Kashmir into a hub of heinous crime, sale and purchase of drugs, wine and growing menace of obscenity and moral bankruptcy," the members said.
