Srinagar, June 30 (KMS): In Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have paid glowing tributes to the Kashmiri martyrs who are falling to Indian state terrorism for demanding Kashmiris’ right to self-determination.
Chairman of Jammu and Muslim Conference, Shabbir Ahmad Dar, in a statement issued in Srinagar while remembering Shaheed Khalid Sharif on his martyrdom anniversary and other martyrs said that the mission of the martyrs would be taken to its logical end at all costs. CRPF personnel grabbed Khalid during a student protest, brutally tortured him and later threw him into the Jhelum River from a bridge on June 30, 2009. While paying tributes to the two youth recently martyred by the troops in custody at Parimpora area of Srinagar, he said that Kashmiris would never forget the sacrifice of their martyrs.
Tehreek-e-Mazahmat Chairman Bilal Ahmad Siddiqui terming the so-called Parimpora encounter as yet another addition to long and painful list of crimes against humanity by Indian forces in IIOJK said this is cold blooded murder of youth in full public glare. He added that Indian troops were on a killing spree to suppress the voices for freedom. “Showing arrest in broad day light, beating and torturing the detainees in full public glare and then stage managing encounters to camouflage custodial deaths is nothing new for occupational troops,” he said. He particularly mentioned the custodial killing of Nadeem Abrar and said that he fell victim to the colonial mindset.

The student was killed at his college campus in Indian city of Chandigarh a few days ago.
