Hold candlelight vigil, torch processions against ongoing ‘killing spree in Kashmir’, says JRL

Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) called for a candlelight vigil and torch processions on Sunday after Magrib (evening) prayers against the “ongoing killing spree in Kashmir.”

JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and incarcerated Muhammad Yasin Malik, in a statement strongly condemned the “barbarism let loose against the people of Kashmir by the government forces.”

“The gruesome killing of civilians Ishfaq Ahmad, a carpenter by profession who was shot dead on spot on mere suspicion of passing by a bunker, and young Muskan Jan pumped with bullets in her abdomen during a protest, wrings at our hearts and deeply grieves the nation . It is extremely sad that GoI has no compunction in allowing such inhumanity to continue by giving unbridled powers to its forces to kill innocent people are day in and out,” they said in a statement.

“It clearly reflects that New Delhi believes in a policy of military might to suppress Kashmiris and their aspirations,” the statement added.

They said that the world community has to break its silence in the face of such oppression and urge government of India to stop these unabated killings and put a halt to its military approach.
