Srinagar: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai, has paid tributes to the martyrs of Gaw Kadal, Handwara and Kupwara massacres stating that Gaw Kadal was first major massacre followed by Handwara and Kupwara in 1990.
In a press release issued here Sehrai said: “Carnage at Gaw Kadal, Handwara and Kupwara remind us of Indian brutal occupation and aggression and we as a nation are indebted to the pious sacrifices.”
According to the statement he called for observing ‘Week of genocide’ in memory of the said massacres and added that it was imperative for people of Kashmir to show commitment and steadfastness towards the ‘movement’. “29 years have passed since the massacre, but neither no probe was ever ordered into the massacres while the guilty were rather rewarded and further impunity was enhanced for such acts,” Seharai was quoted as saying by the press release.
