In Occupied Kashmir, the veteran Hurriyet leader Syed Ali Gilani has said that the local pro-India parties are hand in glove with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to legitimize India’s forcible control over Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing an event in Srinagar, he pointed out that the BJP was pumping money to advance the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) agenda in Kashmir.

The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has warned the Hindu extremist Bharatiya Janata Party against misinterpreting the turnout in the so-called recent elections.

Speaking at a function in Srinagar, he said that the BJP should not forget armed resistance erupted just two years after 1987 polls despite over 74 percent voting.

Meanwhile, complete shutdown was observed in Sopore on Tuesday to mark the 22nd anniversary of the deadliest massacre in the town.

Fifty six civilians were martyred and three hundred and fifty shops and other business establishments were gutted on this day in 1993 after Indian troopers set the Sopore town ablaze.

Hurriyet leaders including JKLF Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Zafar Akbar Butt, Syed Bashir Andrabi and Javed Ahmad Mir in their statements in Srinagar reiterated that the martyrs’ mission would be taken to its logical conclusion against all odds.
