Highway ban shows religious fanatic face of Indian rulers: JKLF
Srinagar, July 06, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has strongly condemned the ban imposed by the occupation authorities on the movement of civilian traffic on Srinagar-Jammu highway during the Amarnath Yatra.
The JKLF Acting Chairman, Abdul Hameed Butt, in a statement issued in Srinagar said banning civilian traffic on highway and halting train service for a lame excuse of providing security to Amarnath pilgrims actually shows the religious fanatic face of Indian rulers who are hell bent upon inflicting miseries and hardships on common citizens of occupied Kashmir.
He said Kashmir has a glowing history of communal harmony and religious tolerance and Kashmiris have always stood firm for defending this tolerance and brotherhood even during hardest times. “Kashmiris in past always provided every sort of help to Amaranth yatris and will keep doing this as it is their moral and religious duty to look after their guests,” he added.
Abdul Hameed Butt said Indian rulers have now put a blanket ban on public movement on main highway during yarta days. He said even train service has been put to hold on the false pretext of providing security to the yatris.
The JKLF Acting Chairman said, “Traders, students and patients are suffering massively due to this undemocratic and illegal order. Fruit and other goods worth millions are rotting on the highways, causing unimaginable damage to the local economy,” he added.
Abdul Hameed Butt said actually Delhi wants to defame Kashmir and Kashmiris and make their lives more miserable. He said as Kashmiris are being deprived of their basic human rights, the international community should put pressure on India to refrain from such inhuman and undemocratic acts.
