Joint Resistance Leadership calls for a shutdown on Feb 3 against Modi’s visit

Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a complete shutdown on February 3 in protest against the visit of Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to Jammu and Kashmir.

“JRL appeals Kashmiri masses to observe a complete shutdown on Sunday 3rd of February 2019, at Mr. Modi’s arrival in Jammu Kashmir,” said a statement.

JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik urged the people to halt all their activities, transport and businesses on the day.

“…and give a message to the whole world that Kashmiris despite all tyranny and oppression by Indian state will not stop their peaceful struggle for right to self-determination and rather will continue this struggle at every cost.”

Modi will visit all three regions of Jammu and Kashmir on February 3 to lay foundation stones of a host of projects.

“Modi as Prime Minister ordered killings and maiming of Kashmiris, destruction of properties, damaging of Kashmiri economy, incarcerations of thousands of Kashmiris and other iron fist oppressive policies,” JRL said in the statement.
