ISLAMABAD, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 10th Jan, 2017 ) : Joint resistance leadership has decided to set-up a trust to provide financial assistance to the people who fell victims to pellets and bullets of Indian forces during the ongoing uprising in Indian occupied territory. According to KMS, Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, in a media interview in Srinagar said, "We had formulated a plan with the traders' body that we will open a trust and money that will be generated will be utilized for the help of the victims.
But the administration is not allowing us to sit, meet and talk about it because I am under detention and they are not allowing any one to meet me." "Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik came to meet me to mature this plan of having a trust, but they were not allowed to come in." Talking about providing the immediate help to the victims, the APHC Chairman said, "We had already asked the baitul maals and masjid committees to be active.
But now their workers have also been arrested, preventing them from helping the victims also." Divulging details of the plan, the Chairman of his Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said, "We had a meeting with the traders and we have decided to open a trust. Every Kashmiri who will go shopping will pay a rupee extra and that money will go to the trust. We have also asked the hoteliers that they will charge Rs 5 extra from the customers and that extra money will go straight to the trust. This way the entire Kashmir will help the victims." As per hospital records, over 12,000 people have been injured by Indian forces with pellets, bullets and other live ammunition. With no help coming from any quarter, the victims have been left to fend for themselves with many of them pushed to penury owing to the high cost of treatment.
