Srinagar, March 01, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders including Engineer Hilal Ahmad War and Javaid Ahmad Mir during a meeting in Srinagar paid glowing tributes to the martyrs of Zakura Bypass on their martyrdom anniversary. Addressing the meeting, the leaders said that the Kashmiris had witnessed dozens of massacres carried out by Indian forces to terrorize them.
“India, during its struggle for freedom, witnessed only one Jalianwala Bagh massacre, but Kashmiris have witnessed dozens of them carried out by Indian forces since 1990. The sole aim of India was to terrorize the people of Kashmir and curb their march towards freedom. But India failed to do so, as, despite all these killings and oppressive measures, people of Jammu and Kashmir continue their march towards freedom,” they said.
The leaders said that same kind of massacres happened at Hazratbal, Gojwara, Mashali Mohalla, Khanyaar, Dalgate, Maisuma, Magarmal Bagh, Handwara, Sopore, Sailan Poonch, Bhaderwah, Doda, Bijebihara etc. The meeting offered special prayers for the Kashmiri martyrs. It is to mention here that more than 30 people were killed and dozens others were injured when Indian troops had opened fire on peaceful protesters in Zukoora and Tengpora areas of Srinagar on March 1, 1990.
