MMM Denounces stepped up Indian state terrorism in OSJK

Srinagar, MTT News Desk: In Occupied State of Jammu & Kashmir (OSJK), Muttahida Majlis e Mushawrat (MMM), has strongly condemned the reign of terror and suppression let loose by India and its puppet authorities in OSJK.

The MMM in a statement issued in Srinagar said, Such repressive measures by India had neither dampened the courage and spirit of people in the past nor will do it in future. It said that the Indian government tried these repressive tactics in 2008, 2009 and 2010, but it could never dampen the freedom sentiment.

The statement pointed out that on one hand, the pro-India politicians were in the forefront of perpetrating all atrocities on people, while one the other, they were shedding crocodile tears in the so-called Kashmir Assembly.

Muttahida Majlis-e-Mushawrat (MMM), is the representative forum of pro-liberation organizations spearheading the campaign of return of the mortal remains of Kashmiri leaders, Muhammad Maqbool Butt and Muhammad Afzal Guru, from New Delhis Tihar Jail to Kashmir.

The Grand Mufti of Occupied State of Jammu & Kashmir (OSJK), Mufti Bashir-ud-Din, terming the current situation in the territory as extremely grim has said that the government of India has once again set Kashmir on fire.

The Grand Mufti in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the killing of Tahir Rasool Sofi by Indian troops in Baramulla and hanging of research scholar, Mudasir Kamran, in Hyderabad, India, seemed to be connected incidents.

The Government of India continues with its policy of treating Kashmiris as bonded slaves and subjecting them to the worst suppression and repression. Sometimes it plays political gimmicks and sometimes it uses worst repressive measures to realize its interest, he stated.

Mufti Bashir-ud-Din denounced the use of indiscriminate force by Indian police and troops against peaceful protesters and imposition of curfew and restrictions in the occupied Valley. We also condemn smashing doors and windowpanes of houses in different areas of the Valley by the armed forces, he added.
