Hurriyat Conference (M) on Sunday said despite "facing suppression by forces", Kashmiris are determined to achieve their goal of right to self-determination. 

"We expressing deep resentment and worry over the large-scale killings in Kashmir, increasing human rights violations and murderous assaults by trigger-happy government forces are carrying out the genocide of Kashmiris. They are playing with the patience of Kashmiris as rights violations had already surpassed all limits of endurance," Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said in a statement. 

"The large presence of people in protest demonstrations and marches continued in every district of Kashmir and Chenab valley, despite curfew, restrictions and curbs, and braving indiscriminate firing of pellets, tear smoke shells, PAVA shells pepper and stun grenades of the government forces shows people's determination and resolve towards achieving their right to freedom even in the face of such repression," the statement said.  

"Another Kashmiri youth, Javed Ahmad Dar, son of Ghulam Muhammad Dar, who was critically injured after being hit by a bullet on August 5 and succumbed to his injuries at SKIMS, Soura on Sunday.    Killings of civilians in the ongoing uprising has now crossed 80," it said. 

The spokesman expressed sympathy and solidarity with the family of Javed saying "these sacrifices are the assets and of the ongoing peaceful resistance movement for the right to self determination, which would not be allowed to go waste."  

Terming the slapping of Public Safety Act (PSA) on 200 youth among the 1500 youth arrested recently as "vengeful", the spokesman said "it would not deter people from striving for their goal." 

Whatever be the situation now and whatever tactics of oppression and suppression the government may adopt on people of Kashmir in general and the youth in particular, they have decided not to rest until achieving their right to self determination for which they are prepared to offer any sacrifice," the statement added.
