The incarcerated chairman of Hurriyat (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has expressed deep grief over the death of Saima Wani of Shopian
"She was battling for life for the past two weeks at SKIMS Soura who was shot at with impunity in the head by the government forces. Our women and children too are not spared and this was a reflection of the great Indian state that believes 'all is fair in war' on unarmed civilian Kashmiris. It is our prime duty to safeguard the sacrifices rendered by the people of Kashmir to reach the ongoing movement to its logical conclusion," Mirwaiz said in a statement.
"The nation pays glowing tribute to the supreme sacrifice of Shaheed Maqbool Bhat on the 34th death anniversary of his hanging in Tihar jail. The sacrifices of our brave hearts is our guiding light to stay steadfast and patient in our just struggle for the achievements of the right to self-determination, the fundamental right of all humans and nations on the globe," the statement said.
Meanwhile, APHC (M) spokesman condemned continuous house detention of amalgam chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq at his residence and arrest of Hurriyat leaders and severe restrictions in parts of Srinagar and north Kashmir.
