Joint Resistance Leadership calls for shutdown, says PDP making people suffer to stay in power

Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) led by Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, on Wednesday, ‘strongly condemned’ and expressed ‘deep worry at the unabated and brutal killing and cold blooded murder of Kashmiris by the joint operations of Indian Armed Forces and police.’

They said that justifying and branding those killed as militants, overground workers, protesters, sympathizers of the movement, secessionist or civilians caught in “cross fire”, the systematic and planned execution of Kashmiris to wipe us out, continues with impunity.

“The youth, feeling pushed to the wall by state persecution and seeing such oppression, in reaction, sadly take to arms, as all space and scope for peaceful resistance is choked. They are branded as ‘terrorists’ and under the garb of fighting ‘Islamic terrorism’, are killed in pinpointed operations,” they said.
