Rejecting and ridiculing the Government of India’s statement in Indian parliament with regard to the current killings and extreme repression in Kashmir by blaming pro freedom leadership and others, resistance leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a joint statement said that the current situation is directly a consequence of India’s occupational and military approach to the Kashmir problem.The leaders said that the internalized propaganda by India with regard to the current situation in particular and the Kashmir dispute in general has blinded them to extents that are unable to understand and accept the geniuses of people’s anger and self drive for freedom and justice.
Praising the courage and steadfastness of people in these most trying times, where all forms of expressing resentment and protest against the unabated killings and injuring of innocent civilians have been curbed, right to assemble and mourn snatched, shoot to kill ordered, strict restrictions enforced ,leadership caged ,media censored and gagged, any and every human and civil right violated, the options to protest and resist this extreme oppression and assault on people is extremely limited. As such in continuation with the protest program on July 19th and 20th there will be a complete shutdown and July 20th will be observed as black day. On 21st July shutdown will continue till 2:00 pm. Their will again be a complete shutdown on Friday the 22nd of July and post Friday prayers peaceful protest will be held in all mosques across the state.
