JKLF delegation reaches Bijbehara to participate in congregational prayers
Srinagar, Oct 22: Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on Monday said that “Bijbehara Massacre is a blot on the face of so-called Indian democracy and a cruel reminder of its military occupation in Jammu and Kashmir.”
In a statement issued here, a JKLF spokesman said: “Kashmiris are fighting for their birth right of self-determination and freedom. This was stated by JKlf while remembering the martyrs who fell to Indian bullets on 22 October 1992 at Bijebihara while protesting against the discretion of Dargah-I-Hazratbal Srinagar.”
“A JKLF delegation comprising district president Mohammad Ishaq Ganai, Mushtaq Ahmad Kuchay, Showkat Ahmad Gatoo and Shabir Rather reached Bijebihara and participated in a congregational prayers meeting held for Bijebihara martyrs at their graveyard in Bijebihara. Terming Bijebihara massacre as a reminder of Indian military oppression in Jammu Kashmir, JKLF leaders said that from 1947 till now more than Lakhs of Kashmiris have been martyred by forces of evil and military occupation. Massacres at Jammu, Srinagar, Sopore, Handwara, Sailan Poonch, Bederwah, Bijebihara, and Islamabad, Gawkadal, Zakoora, Batmaloo Bypass and other places are actually a blot on the face of so-called biggest democracy of India which has chosen to suppress the peaceful voices of people of Jammu Kashmir by military might and oppression,” he said.
“The ongoing killing spree of which yesterday’s Kulgam Massacre was also a part, these massacres and failure of Indian democracy and the internal national community in penalizing the murderous and deliver justice to the victims is actually a criminal and a reminder of Indian military occupation of Jammu Kashmir, its tyrannical behavior against humans and the failure of the international community in delivering justice to the people of Jammu Kashmir. Leaders said that despite of these gruesome oppressive measures Indians have failed to stop our march towards freedom and with Allah’s grace and help this blood soaked resistance movement will achieve its desired goal soon Insha’Allah,” he added.
