SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Monday said government is adopting “aggressive” approach towards the resistance leadership while strongly condemning the continuous house arrest and imposition curbs on the social, political and religious activities of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
A spokesman of the conglomerate in a statement issued here said in view of continuous house arrest of Mirwaiz, the democratic claims of the state are falling flat. He said authorities have imposed a blanket ban on the freedom of expression in Kashmir. “Such draconian measures will not weaken the resolve and commitment of the resistance leadership,” he said.
Meanwhile, senior Hurriyat leaders including Professor Abdul Gani Bhat, Musadiq Adil, Mukhtar Ahmad Waza, Advocate Abdul Majid Banday, and Abdul Majeed Wani visited Nishat to express condolence with the bereaved family of Faiz Naqashbandi.
Another delegation comprising Khaleel Ahmad Khaleel, GN Najar, and others visited the house of Hurriyat activist Ghulam Mohamamd Pandit at Wadoora Sopore to express condolence on demise of his father Abdul Jabar Pandit. Expressing condolence and sympathy with Pandit and the bereaved family, the delegation prayed for the eternal peace of the deceased.
