‘Forcing silence of graveyard by military might and naming it as peace can only be termed as stupidity’

‘Reiterate the call for complete shutdown on 27th November 2017’

Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that ‘forcing silence of the graveyard by military might and naming it as peace can only be termed as stupidity. A fascist government in power, inspired by Joseph Goebbels’ malicious propaganda techniques is trying to paint the brutal pacification of Kashmir as peace and return of normalcy’.

In a statement issued to the press, the JRL said, “If Indian rulers presume that oppression unleashed by their army and forces has trampled resistance in Kashmir, then they should find some courage to lift the ban on political activities of the resistance camp.”

This was stated by the Joint Resistance Leadership while responding to recent statements of Indian ministers like Arun Jaitly and others.

Terming the statement of Indian finance minister Arun Jaitly as absurd, joint leadership said that nullifying Kashmiri resistance by terming it as “sponsored” and “paid” has been an old ploy of Indians who always try to negate Kashmiri sacrifices and resistance by these ridiculous statements.

JRL said that any rational person would find talk of normalcy and peace in occupied territory as laughable when Kashmir is witnessing an increasing build up of occupying forces, particularly in the southern districts of Kashmir valley, and when surveillance state pervades every nook and corner of Kashmir, the discourse of normalcy and peace can only be promoted by the colonial elites like Jaitley and his proxies in Kashmir.

The statement added that by claiming that Indian army and forces have succeeded in suppressing Kashmiri resistance, Arun Jaitley is actually acknowledging the fact that India is keeping its illegal occupation on Jammu Kashmir through military and police might.

It added that the Indian army, forces and police have turned Jammu Kashmir into a hell by killing thousands, blinding and injuring thousands, jailing and torturing thousands, ransacking and vandalizing properties worth millions and also by putting a blanket ban on all political activities.

JRL said that “as Mr. Jaitley and his colleagues falsely presume to have defeated Kashmiri resistance by military oppression and NIA, ED terrorism, we challenge them to allow peaceful activities of resistance camp in Kashmir so that the reality of their false assumptions is established beyond doubt.”

“To prove the fabrication of these kind of Indian claims, Resistance Leadership has decided to start a fresh series of political programs and in this connection, a public program (Jalsa) will be held on 15th December 2017, at Lal Chowk Islamabad (Anantnagh). After this Jalsa, similar kind of public programs will also be held in North and Central Kashmir,” the statement said.

While reiterating the call for a total Kashmir Bandh on 27th November 2017, JRL appealed to the people to observe a complete shutdown against military and police oppression in southern districts of Kashmir valley and in solidarity with thousands of prisoners languishing in different jails.

“Suppressing a people’s struggle by oppressive measures is not possible. The Indian leadership should realize the fact that it can never suppress or defeat Kashmiri resistance by military means,” the statement said.
