‘Kashmiris will deliver message to India and international community that Kashmiris want freedom from Indian occupation’
Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) of Syed ALi Geelani, Mirwaiz Mohammad Umer Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik in a joint statement has called ‘all sort of elections under Indian rule’ in Kashmir as ‘tools to harm national interest of the valley.
The statement said, “We cannot vote and hence strengthen the hands of those tyrants who separated innocent kids (Maryam and Azra) from their mothers and are forcing us to bury mutilated bodies of our kith and kin.”
JRL has appealed to the people to boycott upcoming Panchayat election in the valley. The statement added, “Indian rulers and their Kashmiri stooges, who on daily basis trample democracy and humanity, have been using this election drama to negate Kashmiri demand for self-determination and freedom.”
“As a living nation it is the responsibility of every Kashmiri to safeguard sacrifices rendered by martyrs and never forget these sacrifices”, said the statement.
The statement further added, “how can we vote for those so-called rulers and their parties which are hell bent on installing RSS fascism in Jammu Kashmir, who want to change the demography of this land and turn its Muslim majority into minority and who have killed thousands of men and women, who snatched eyesight of thousands by pellets, who have caged thousands of young and old, who are engaged in vandalizing our houses and putting our localities to flames in these cold days and who are using every tyrant method to suppress our resistance.”
While appealing for a complete and comprehensive boycott of elections especially the recently announced Panchayat elections the JRL said, “Kashmiris will deliver a message to India and to the international community that Kashmiris want freedom from Indian occupation and that they will accept nothing less than freedom and right to self determination.”
