He said that indiscriminate firings and showering of pellets which is resulting in the killing of our unarmed innocents and blinding of young boys and girls.
He said pro-India politicians who scream together on some ugly incident are seen silent on this continued massacre and mass blinding which speaks volumes about their hierocracy.
He said that on ongoing killings, maiming, mass blinding, blasting and burning down of properties, incarcerating thousands under black laws like PSA, humiliating and beating Kashmiri youth on roads and by using these harsh measures have failed to contain or defeat Kashmiri resistance and struggle for freedom which is legal and based on genuineness and truth.
