Jummat-ul-Vida to be observed as Palestine and Kashmir Day: Separatists
Srinagar, Jun 06: Separatist trio of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yaseen Malik on Wednesday appealed the people to observe the last Friday of Ramazan (Jummat-ul-Vida) as “Palestine and Kashmir Day”.
They also sought people’s support to a resolution which urged the world community “to rise to the occasion to solve the festering human issue of Palestine and Kashmir and help curb the atrocities perpetrated on the people of both these regions of the world.”
Their resolution also appealed the OIC to bar the nefarious designs of Israel for its illegitimate occupation of Masjid Aqsa, and urged the UNO to fulfill its commitment to solve the Kashmir issue in accordance with its agreed resolutions.
The resolution also appealed the world community to take serious note of the “rule of oppression and suppression and gross-human rights violations at the hands of Indian occupation forces. The prevailing state of absolute lawlessness in Jammu and Kashmir has rendered the civil liberty, honour and dignity of the general public as highly vulnerable. People on one pretext or the other, get killed, maimed and incarcerated on fabricated grounds and languish in jails without any trail and justice.”
The resolution also paid tributes to “all the martyrs of our freedom movement” and pledged to “carry the ongoing movement for right to self-determination to its logical conclusion.”
The resolution also condemned the “vile acts of state terrorism perpetrated on the people of Kashmir by the Indian occupation forces.”
