In occupied Kashmir, illegally detained Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party and senior APHC leader, Shabbir Ahmad Shah has asked India to accept the right to self-determination of the Kashmiri people, guaranteed by the United Nations Security Council.
Shabbir Ahmad Shah, who is lodged in Delhi’s notorious Tihar jail, in a message released in Srinagar deplored that India had started the bloody game in the occupied territory after closing all doors to resolve the Kashmir dispute politically.
However, he expressed satisfaction over the fact that freedom struggle had been successfully transferred to the new generation.
The Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement said that the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s proposed visit to the occupied territory was aimed at hoodwinking the world’s opinion on the Kashmir dispute.
The resistance leaders have called for a march towards Srinagar’s Lal Chowk on Saturday against the visit.
Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir in a statement condemned the Indian authorities for starting the spree of raids and arrests in the territory ahead of Modi’s visit.
