Unity urged to thwart anti-movement designs

Srinagar, July 24 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference and forum led by veteran Hurriyet leader Syed Ali Gilani have said that anti-Kashmir and anti-movement elements are conspiring to foment disharmony by carrying out attacks on people of different sects to cover up the Gool tragedy.

The APHC at its Executive Council meeting that was presided over by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in Srinagar urged people to maintain unity in their ranks to thwart the designs of anti-movement elements.

The forum during its Majlis-e-Shura meeting, chaired by Syed Ali Gilani denouncing the continued blatant human rights violations by Indian army and police said that Indian secret agencies were hell-bent upon dividing the Kashmiris along sectarian lines. The JKLF-R and Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement in their separate statements also termed the attacks on Muslims of different sects as the handiwork of Indian agencies.

On the other hand, curfew was imposed in Badgam following incidents of arson by anti-movement elements in the district. Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik led a house-to-house march in different areas of the district and appealed the people to keep unity in their ranks. APHC leader, Zafar Akbar Butt during his visit to different hospitals said, India cannot intimidate the Kashmiris into submission through use of brute force.

APHC leaders, Shabbir Ahmad Shah and Muhammad Yousuf Naqash were arrested along with other activists in Qazi Gund while on their way to Gool in Ramban to express solidarity with the victims of Indian state terrorism.

Pakistan’s national anthem reverberated Kashmir University when a large number of students sung the anthem outside the Allama Iqbal Library at the centre of the campus. They also raised anti-India and pro-liberation slogans. Scores of students, scholars and general staffers took out a protest rally against the killing of unarmed civilians by Indian Border Security Force personnel at Gool in Ramban, last week.

The Punjab-based Sikh organization, Akali Dal President Simranjit Singh Mann addressing a press conference in Srinagar, said that Indian troops in Jammu and Kashmir were an occupying force and plebiscite was the only possible solution to the internationally-recognized dispute over Kashmir.
