Hizbul Plans Recruitment Drive On Burhan Wani Death Anniversary
Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said Burhan Wani's martyrdom has given new life to the struggle of Kashmiri people for their right to self-determination. He appealed to all to maintain peace and harmony.
Separatist leaders - most of whom were either confined to their homes or detained in the run-up to the anniversary - had called for a week of protests from yesterday to mark Wani's death.
Given the sensitive situation in restive South Kashmir, security is further strengthened and police and other security forces have intensified area domination to prevent assembly of people in Wani's native village in Tral area.
In parts of south Kashmir - the epicentre of the renewed insurgency - villagers began intervening in anti-militant raids, throwing stones at government forces to create a distraction and give the rebels a chance to flee.
Four districts of Jammu and Kashmir- Pulwama, Kulgam, Shopian and Anantnag - have been on the boil since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen leader Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8, 2016.
"His martyrdom made the global community and world powers that they could no longer condone the grave human rights violations by the Indian forces", the prime minister said. The rally was organized under the auspices of United Jihad Council which was participated by thousands of people who raised anti-India and pro-freedom slogans. Security forces also blocked roads and laid concertina wires to prevent movement of traffic and people.
Protestors clashed with security personnel in Tral, the hometown of militant commander Burhan Wani, on his first death anniversary.
Muzaffar Wani, Burhan's father, said that the protest movement in the region can not be suppressed by the authorities.
Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi said the Centre was "well prepared" to handle any situation in Kashmir.
Internet services were shut down on Thursday evening.
Despite this protests were reported from different parts of the Valley. The situation across the Valley remained tensed for nearly six months past year, resulting in the death of around 100 civilians and three security men.
The yatra is continuing from Baltal and Pahalgam base camps. I would have made him understand that a bridge of friendship between pakistan, Kashmir and India can be built and he could also be useful in that.
