altJehlum Post News|Srinagar| Feb 11, 2014| Stressing that Kashmiris by observing complete shutdown on the martyrdom anniversaries of Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru have shown their strong resolve and commitment to the great mission of martyrs and freedom struggle, Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Tuesday said that people have once again proved that liberation struggle was sacred and was above everything. He further said that Kashmiris have also proved that they can’t overlook their cherished freedom struggle just for the sake of some petty economic or some individual benefits. Mirwaiz said that authorities left no stone unturned to prevent people from observing the commemoration of the two martyrs. He said just for demanding

the mortals of two martyrs and paying homage to them, authorities resorted to all the tyrannical measures by arresting and house arresting Hurriyat leaders, activists, workers, arresting youths, and imposing undeclared curfews across villages and towns in entire Kashmir since past three days.Mirwaiz said such suppressive tactics openly display the anti-people policy pursued by the state against Kashmiris, adding, it also deflated their claims that Kashmir was peaceful. Mirwaiz said force and terror, economic grants and personal benefits, would in no way crush the spirit of freedom among the Kashmiri people, neither can it buy their loyalty. He said that three day shutdown to remember martyrs should once again serve an eye opener for the world community and Indian leadership that Kashmir issue can’t be solved by unleashing terror and force or by economic grants. He said Kashmir issue can only be solved through political means in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of people.
