ISLAMABAD State-sponsored violence in Indian Kashmir has unfolded new heights of barbarism with the last few days witnessing unprecedented torture, arrests, and killings of Kashmiris living in the Occupied Valley. Just on the Eid day when hundreds of thousands of Kashmiris had assembled to offer Eid prayers in different parts of the Valley, the incidents of direct firing at the people by Indian forces, particularly in Baramula, Anantnag, Awantipura and Lethpura, had reportedly taken several precious innocent lives. In a bid to keep the public away from the leaders, the Indian Army had house-arrested the key Kashmiri leaders on the eve of Eid. As if it was not enough, the senior Kashmiri leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Yaseen Malik, Shabbir Shah, Sarmad Dar, Abbas Lone and Nizam Shahid were forcefully restricted to their homes again on Sunday. These arrests aimed at foiling the Sundays grand protest in Srinagar that had taken place on the call of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF). In a telephonic conversation with this journalist from Srinagar on Monday, the militant turned political leader of JKLF, Abbas Lone, informed that seven Kashmiri youths had lost their lives in Srinagar, Baramula and other parts in the fresh spate of India-sponsored violence. He said that Kashmiris truly lived up to the spirit of Eid-ul-Azha by sacrificing their young sons of soil for a noble cause. Our sons are brutally martyred. We had assembled to offer Eid prayers on Wednesday but Indian forces wanted us to return homes, they fired at us which took so many precious lives, he said referring to the firing incidents at the aforementioned areas. Lone said that Indian forces had inflicted similar kind of tyrant practices a few days back when US President Barrack Obama arrived in India. Earlier it was Obamas visit and now its Eid that saw so much bloodshed. What is this? I tell you what is this; its fear, the fear of losing Kashmir that runs in the hearts and minds of Indian Army. Have my word, they can never win this war because fears dont leads to victories, he added. Meanwhile, despite all the intrigues and plans that 'thoughtful Indian minds in IHK had cooked up to suppress public rallies gatherings and protests, the Eid-ul-Azha turned out to be a socio-religious cum freedom festival for the Kashmiris, which invoked a fresh spark of independence within the already unstoppable freedom struggle. The Indian Army had called additional troops of Border Security Force (BSF) and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) to suppress protest rallies in Baramula, Kupwara, Anantnag, Awantipora and Lethpora during last few days. Even on Monday, further arrests of Kashmiri youths were reported from Sanwaar and Anantnag in order to foil the JKLF call of Quit Kashmir protests. Sanwaar is the same town of Srinagar where the office of United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) is located. The Kashmiri leaders were continued to have been forcefully confined to their homes till the filing of this report.
