Demos in IOK against genocide of Rohingya Muslims
Srinagar, September 08 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown was observed in Badgam town, today, against the reign of terror unleashed by India’s National Investigation Agency particularly a raid of its sleuths on the residence of senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi.
Normal life was affected in the town today due to the shutdown call issued by Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi. All shops, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed in the town. A protest rally was held against the NIA raid on the residence of the APHC leader.
The NIA sleuths had yesterday conducted a raid at the residence of Agha Al-Moosvi which continued till late evening. The NIA officials had to flee in a hurry after hundreds of people raising pro-freedom and anti-India slogans held massive protests and stormed into the residence of the APHC leader. The protesters said that the NIA officials had misbehaved with Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi and his family and harassed them.
On the other hand, the joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement in Srinagar strongly condemned the fresh wave of terror unleashed by the government of India against the Kashmiri people and Hurriyat leaders. They said that under a well-planned conspiracy to defame the Kashmiri leadership and the ongoing movement for freedom on the directions of Indian Home Ministry, the NIA had been assigned the job of harassing and intimidating the pro-freedom leaders, their families, friends, and business community.
Meanwhile, people held forceful demonstrations and rallies in Srinagar, Badgam, Ganderbal, Islamabad, Pampore, Tral, Pulwama, Baramulla, Handwara, Kupwara, Bandipore, Shopian, Kulgam and other areas against the genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The protests were led by Hurriyat leaders including Muhammad Yasin Malik, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, Maulana Masroor Abbas Ansari and Hakeem Abdur Rasheed. Indian police and troops used brute force on the protesters at different places. Several people were injured in clashes between the demonstrators and the forces’ personnel in Islamabad town where angry protesters set ablaze a police vehicle. A resolution presented during the Juma congregations for the public support strongly denounced the killing of innocent Rohingya Muslims and urged the international community and the world human rights bodies to play their role in stopping the bloodshed of these Muslims. The puppet authorities did not allow people to hold Juma prayers at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement strongly denounced the authorities’ action.
Shutdown, marked by demonstrations, was also observed in Bhaderwah, Banihal, Doda, Kishtwar, Thathri and other areas of Jammu region to protest against the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and harassment of Rohingya refugees by threatening them to forcibly deport them at the behest of extremist Hindu organization Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
