Joint resolution passed amid pro-freedom slogans in Occupied Kashmir
SRINAGAR - In Indian held Kashmir, while felicitating the Muslim Ummah on the occasion of Eidul-Fitr, the joint resistance leadership has saluted the people of Jammu and Kashmir for showing resilience and steadfastness towards the ongoing Kashmir’s freedom struggle.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the joint leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik had also prepared a joint resolution to be passed during Eid prayers. Since the Indian authorities have put the entire pro-freedom leadership either in jail or under house detention, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressed Eid gathering at the historic Eidgah in Srinagar over phone and read out the resolution, which was passed amid-pro-freedom slogans.

The Mirwaiz is under house detention at his Nigeen residence and Syed Ali Gilani continues to remain caged at his Hydepora residence. JKLF Chief Muhammad Yasin Malik has been lodged in Central Jail Srinagar. The joint resistance leadership, in the resolution, expressed solidarity and sympathy with the families of those whose dear ones were killed, and those whose sons are languishing in various jails across India. “We are with those whose eyes are moist on this day of auspicious occasion,” read the resolution.

The resolution termed the India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) raids on the houses of pro-freedom leaders and Kashmiri businessmen illegal and maintained that these were new ploys being used by New Delhi to defame the freedom struggle, which is based on truth and priceless sacrifices. “If such raids are stopped, there will be serious repercussions and the entire responsibility will lie on India and its local administration,” it read.

The resolution further read that Kashmir’s pro-freedom leadership makes it clear that they stand with the Muslim brethren of Jammu region and all the designs aimed at created a regional or communal wedge will be defeated. “In no case, whatever happened in 1947, will not be allowed to repeat,” the resolution read while referring to massacre of Muslims in the Jammu region during partition of the sub-continent.

The resolution also expressed solidarity with all the political prisoners who are languishing in various jails for no fault and also with those who were ramed in fake cases. “We strongly condemn the government decision of not releasing the Kashmiri prisoners on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr,” the resolution said.

The leadership urged the international community and other world human rights organisations to build pressure on Delhi so that rising war crimes and unabated rights abuses are stopped forthwith in Kashmir. The resolution said that the leadership was duty bound to take the movement of right to self-determination to its logical conclusion. -Online
