Thousands attend funeral prayers of martyred youth
In Occupied Kashmir, tens of thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of martyred youth, Junaid Mattoo, Nasir Wani and Aadil Mushtaq in different areas today.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the funeral prayers of the martyred youth were held in Islamabad, Shopian and Pampore areas. The mourners raised high-pitched pro-freedom, pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans. The martyred youth were laid to rest after being shrouded in Pakistani flag.
The puppet authorities imposed restrictions in Srinagar and other parts of the Kashmir Valley to prevent people from staging demonstrations against the killing of youth by Indian troops in Rangreth and Arwani areas.
The authorities made heavy deployment of Indian police and troops in all major towns to prevent the protests.
Complete shutdown was observed in the Occupied territory against the killings to register protest on the call of the joint resistance leadership.
Hurriyet leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi in their statements strongly denounced the killing of the youth. They said that after the recent statements of Indian Army Chief, General Bipin Rawat, the occupational forces were treating occupied Kashmir as a hunting ground and killing whosoever came in their way.
Meanwhile, the puppet authorities put Mirwaiz Umar Farooq under house arrest in Srinagar, today, while continuously confining Syed Ali Gilani to his residence.
