Srinagar, Apr 9, CNS: Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has paid rich and glowing tributes to unarmed civilians who lost their lives in central Kashmir’s Dudgam district the same day last year when the men in uniform opened fire on protesters for boycotting the Indian elections. The party also remembered the shameful act of using Farooq Ahmad Dar as human shield by Indian Army in the same district and said that Kashmiri people are being insulted and punished collectively for their outlook of freedom. JKDFP reiterated that sacrifices of the people like of Budgam will be safeguarded at any cost.
Adil Faroq Dar, resident of Kawoosa; Nissar Ahmad Mir, resident of Rathsun; Aamir Ahmad, resident of Dadonpora; Shabir Ahmad Bhat, resident of Dawlatpora; Abbas Jahangir and Faizan Fayaz, both residents of Dalwan Chrar-e-Sharief; and Aqil Ahmad Wani of Churmujroo were killed by Indian forces in Budgam district on April 9, 2017. The party also remembered 20-year-old Umer Farooq Ganie of Baroosa Ganderbal, who was mercilessly killed by Indian forces on the same day.
A Freedom Party spokesman said that killing spree which started three decades before in Kashmir has not ended and India is on path of genocide in the disputed region to kill and crush the freedom struggle of the people of Kashmir. The party stressed upon human rights organizations on international level to come to the rescue of Kashmiri people who are being massacred only for demanding their political rights.
The JKDFP spokesman hailed the people of central Kashmir for exhibiting their freedom sentiment by observing complete boycott of last year’s so called elections and showing the world that Kashmiris cannot be befooled any more in the name of elections and so.
The party said that atrocities and tyranny cannot resolve the long pending dispute of Kashmir so New Delhi must come forward with a political package which can create an atmosphere to hold a free and fare plebiscite in the disputed region as promised by the United Nations and endorsed by India.
