ISLAMABAD, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 9th August, 2016) : Chairman of Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has said that the Indian armed forces have turned the entire Valley into a battlefield with target killings. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, in a statement issued in Srinagar, said the people across the territory including Srinagar were not being allowed to offer prayers even in the historic Jamia Masjid Srinagar and main mosques of other localities, reported Kashmir Media Service.
He said the pro-India regime only cared about staying in power and it would go to any extent for hanging on to it. The Mirwaiz lauded the people for showing consistency and steadfastness. After a month, people continue to follow the unified pro-freedom leadership's programmes, he said. "This would have a permanent effect on the ongoing resistance movement. The day is not far when they would see the dawn of a new revolution and fulfillment of their right to self- determination," he said. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq expressed concern that in several areas some mischievous and anti-movement elements were working overtime to give a bad name to the ongoing uprising.
