All Parites Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while paying tributes to slain Hizb commander Burhan Wani, his two associates and all the civilians killed by the armed forces last year, Friday said the sacrifices rendered by "these martyrs are indelibly impressed on our collective memory."
According to statement issued here, Mirwaiz said the martyrs once again brought to fore the urgent need to resolve the Kashmir issue , the cause of great suffering and grief to the people of Kashmir for the past seven decades.
"The policy of killing and oppression as a state response to a people's legitimate and peaceful political struggle has got standardized and is justified by the state as a means of maintaining its control over the land and its people," Mirwaiz said. "As a reaction to this military approach to ruthlessly suppress a people's just demand ,some among our youth are driven to resort to armed resistance to challenge this approach and seek a solution."
Mirwaiz said the threats and senseless comments of BJP members that they will turn Kashmir into a graveyard for those seeking "Azadi and on the GST ,speak of their arrogance and ignorance with regard to the people of Kashmir and the Kashmir conflict." GKNN
