Condemns killing of tourist in stone pelting

SRINAGAR, May 8: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik has asked the people to resume their normal work from tomorrow after three days of shutdown, which ended today. It strongly condemned the killing of a tourist in stone pelting at Narbal yesterday.
In a statement, JRL appealed to people of all walks of life that include employees, lawyers, teaches, traders and transporters and others to continue their protest and resentment against “unabated killings by government forces by wearing black badges on arms and fixing black flags atop houses, shops and vehicles.”
JRL also urged the Imams of all the mosques, shrines and Imam Baras to offer funeral prayers in absentia for those killed in Shopian and Srinagar after congregational Friday prayers on May 11 and to read and pass a JRL resolution.
The leadership said that unabated killing of civilians is a critical concern for the nation and JRL had met last week to deliberate upon it and was going to take the public on board regarding the deliberations but the authorities did not allow them to do so as they were again detained. JRL said that once the leadership gets to meet future course of action regarding the issue will be shared and inputs taken.
JRL also strongly condemned and expressed grief at the sad incident at Narbal in which a young tourist from Tamil Nadu was hit with a stone, who later died in hospital and a local lady was injured. “Such incidents go against the grain of our humanity religion and culture. Elements who do so defame the sacred people’s movement by such inhuman actions. People of Kashmir have always welcomed tourists as our guests even in the most trying of times and this practice will never change,” the separatist leadership said.
JRL urged the youth to maintain discipline while protesting against the atrocities and killings of people by the government forces.
