The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has appealed to the freedom-loving Kashmiris living across the Line of Control, Pakistan and other parts of the world to observe Martyrs’ Week from 6th to 13th of this month.
The APHC issued a calendar containing various programmes to be observed in connection with the Martyrs’ Week.
As per the calendar, 8th July will be observed as Resistance Day to mark the martyrdom anniversary of popular youth leader, Burhan Wani and 13th July shall be observed as Kashmir Martyrs’ Day. The APHC has urged people to assemble in Burhan Wani’s native town Tral on July 8 and the Martyrs’ Graveyard at Naqashband Sahib in Srinagar on July 13 where the martyrs of 1931 are buried to offer Fateha.
Meanwhile, State Investigation Agency, on Sunday, conducted raids at multiple locations across the valley and harrased the families of Hurriyat leaders.
The National Conference leader, Hasnain Masoodi, while talking to media persons in Srinagar expressed concern over halt to normal life and closure of business activities on the yatra routes in Kashmir.
The APHC-AJK Convener, Mahmood Ahmad Saghar, in a letter addressed to the heads of G-20 countries said that India’s contentious plan to hold next G20 summit in IIOJK is a ploy aimed at deflecting the world’s attention from the Kashmir dispute.
