In occupied Kashmir, a protest demonstration was held at Chhatabal in Srinagar against the raids and crackdowns by Indian forces in the territory.
According to media sources, the protest was organized by Jammu and Kashmir Ittehadul Muslmeen. While addressing the protesters, Hurriyet leader Masroor Abbas Ansari said that many youth had been killed during the military operations. He said that recent killing of 19-year-old student, Aadil Farooq, in Shopian was the proof that Indian forces had a free licence to kill innocent Kashmiris. He also condemned the raids of India’s National Investigation Agency on the houses of Hurriyet leaders and members of business community.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League in a statement issued in Srinagar called for immediate measures to resolve the Kashmir dispute. JKML Spokesman Sajjad Ayubi said that peace of entire South Asia was at risk due to unresolved Kashmir dispute.
