SRINAGAR, Sep 10: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) today blamed the government agencies for the killing of Hakeem-ur-Rehman Sultani, a Hurriyat Conference(G) activist in Sopore.
In a statement, it appealed to the people of Sopore and Zainageer to observe a complete shutdown on September 14.
The statement added that JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik after taking a keen account of the report submitted by the nominated committee and the public revelations alleged that “the invisible hand of Indian agencies in the gruesome killing cannot be ruled out”.
“The JRL meeting expressed its grave concern on the revival of custodial as well as the mysterious killings in Jammu and Kashmir to give vent to group clashes and anarchy,” it said.
Citing the case of “custodial killing” of Ashfaq Ahmad Wani at Naseem Bagh Srinagar and the brutal killing of Hakeem-ur-Rehman at Bomai Sopore, the JRL blamed Indian regime for designing conspiracies to drive a wedge in unwavering unity of the people of Kashmir displayed to foil the nefarious designs to change the demography and state subject law in addition to thrust any sham elections on the people of the state.
“The JRL while going through the report and inputs received from different public sources arrived at the conclusion that the positive and exemplary role played by the Hakeem-ur-Rehman for the last one decade or so while remaining very close to the public, has acted as an irritant for the Indian agencies. He was fired upon his leg by the police task force, jailed under public safety act and threatened of dire consequences for his inflamed oratory, philanthropic dreams and aspirations, noble character and an unwavering commitment for the ongoing movement for right to self-determination,” the statement said.
