Srinagar, Jan 19 (KNS): Paying rich tributes to the martyrs of Gawkadal, Handwara and Kupwara on their anniversaries, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has remembered all the martyrs of Kashmir saying that whole nation is indebted to their sacrifices and duty bound to take their mission to logical conclusion.
In a statement issued to KNS, JKDFP Spokesperson said that massacres of Gawkadal, Handwara and Kupwara at the hands of Indian forces are only tip of an iceberg. Indian occupation has been so brutal that government forces have turned the whole disputed region into a killing filed and they have massacred Kashmiri people in nook and corner. These government forces are still on a killing spree in the garb of encounters and so called forces operations.
The JKDFP Spokesperson said that the nation of Kashmir is indebted to martyrs who laid down their lives for freedom and everybody among us is duty bound to continue their struggle till the achievement of the sacred goal.
Terming the massacres at Gawkadal, Handwara and Kupwara in 1990 as a reminder of Indian illegal occupation, JKDFP Spokesperson said that Kashmiri people will not rest till the goal of freedom is achieved. He said that Indian forces started their killing spree from Gawkadal and these forces are continuously killing us for our political beliefs. These forces martyred more than 50 persons in Gawkadal, and thought that Kashmiris will surrender their demand of self determination; however time has proved that Kashmiri people will never surrender their internationally acknowledged demand. He said that days like January21, 25 and 27 remind us of the sacrifices rendered by our dear ones. Great nations never forget their martyrs and so Kashmiri people will always remember those martyred by Indian forces.
The Freedom Party Spokesperson also remembered its incarcerated chief, Shabir Shah and all those languishing in different jails of the state or outside. He said that Shabir Shah is being punished for his fearless advocacy of the right to self determination, and all other prisoners including him are in fact nourishing the resistance movement by spending their precious days behind bars.
