SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has said that the Kashmiri people will continue to seek peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute and India will not be able to intimidate them into submission through use of repressive measures.
Addressing a public gathering at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, today, he said that repressive tactics of the Indian government to silence the Hurriyat leadership would not change the dynamics of the Kashmir dispute.

Addressing the demonstration, APHC leaders termed the random detention of resistance leaders in occupied Kashmir as blot on the face of India, which claims to be the largest democracy of the world.
They also condemned the fascist ploys like of booking Muhammad Yasin Malik and others Hurriyat leaders under PSA, issuing summon to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Dr Naseem Gilani by NIA, the spree of mass arrests and ban on Jamaat-e-Islami.
Soon after the culmination of Friday prayers, scores of the JKLF leaders and activists assembled in Aabi Guzar and demanded release of all illegally detained political leaders and activists languishing in different jails.
