Indian forces shoot down 18 ‘unarmed’ Kashmiris
According to details, the wave of protests started against the killing of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.
The Indian forces opened fire on unarmed citizens for violating the curfew to take part in the funeral prayers.
One youth lost his life when security forces opened fire on protesters in Pulwama on Sunday morning. Earlier, three people, who were seriously injured in firing incidents on Saturday, succumbed to their injuries last night. Meanwhile, curfew has been imposed in the occupied valley today.
On the other hand, a two-day shutdown is also being observed in the entire Kashmir valley from today against the killing spree unleashed by Indian army and police following the martyrdom of Burhan Wani. Call for the strike was given by the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference Syed Ali Gilani and Hurriyet Leaders Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.
Leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference have appealed the masses to offer absentia funeral prayers for Wani.
The Indian authorities have put Kashmiri leaders Yaseen Malik, Shabbir Shah, Mirwaiz Farooq and Ali Gillani under detention after enraged citizens reportedly set fire three Indian police stations.
“Indian forces are straight firing on millions of unarmed citizens. The more they will try to put down our voice the louder it would become,” said Mirwaiz.
Over 0.2 million Indian Army personnel, 70, 000 paramilitary personnel and 60, 000 police have been deployed in 10 districts of Kashmir which has paralyzed the whole Kashmir.
