Srinagar /May, 16 : Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) in a statement issued on Thursday called for a complete shutdown on May 17, 2019, Friday against the gruesome killings of innocent civilians Arshad Ahmad Dar (Pattan), raies Ahmad Dar (Pulwama) and Nayeem Ahmad Shah (Baderwah) at the hands of Indian occupation forces even during the ongoing holy month of Ramadan.
JRL comprising Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Molvi Umar Farooq and incarcerated JKLF Chairman Yaseen Malik also appealed, especially the youth to maintain peace and discipline while leading the protest march after Friday prayers in the nook and corner of the state.
Accusing Government Of India (GoI) of turning Jammu and Kashmir into shambles and a war field where people suffer from a deep sense of insecurity, the JRL said “our life, honour and all belongings are at stake .
JRL appealed all the respected Imams and Khateebs to apprise the subjugated people about the ongoing wave of oppression and repression at the hands of occupation forces. They also appealed people especially youth to maintain discipline and dignity during the peaceful protests against Indian barbarism. Voicing its grave concern on the volatile situation where as a routine matter people get killed maimed, blinded by pellets and randomly incarcerated on flimsy and baseless grounds, the JRL appealed UN Seceratry General to take strong note of the gross violation of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir and help resolve it in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the people
