In occupied Kashmir, the joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik has strongly condemned the detention of Hurriyet leaders and restrictions on a condolence meeting in Budgam.

In a joint statement in Srinagar the three leaders said puppet authorities are choking space for peaceful political activities.

They said the situation is increasingly turning from bad to worse, resulting in political uncertainty in the occupied territory.

They hailed the people of Srinagar, Ganderbal and Budgam for their exemplary poll boycott. The resistance leadership said that this had conveyed a strong message to the world community that election drama amid ten hundred thousand Indian troops was unacceptable and could not be a substitute for the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination.

Meanwhile, complete shutdown was observed in Tahab area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district against the arrest of over two dozen youth by Indian police in occupied Kashmir on Saturday.

Indian police have arrested twenty-seven youth during nocturnal raids in Tahab.

All shops and business establishments remained closed while traffic was off the road in the area.
