Indian forces kill three more youth in held Kashmir

Over 210 civilian martyred by Indian troops in IoK in 2019

SRINAGAR: Indian forces in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred three more Kashmiri youth in an operation in Srinagar, raising the number of the slain youth in the territory to 10 over the past three days. 

Three youth were killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation in the Panthachowk area on the outskirts of Srinagar city, Kashmir Media Service reported.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan has advised brave Kashmiris, enduring ruthless oppression from Indian occupied forces, to seek inspiration from Karbala martyrs and stay steadfast in their courage and mission to attain their long-sought right of self-determination.

In a series of tweets, the premier said that there are three important messages for us from Imam Hussain (AS), his family and followers’ sacrifice in Karbala.

“Firstly, immortality is earned by those who give the supreme sacrifice of their lives to stand against tyranny and injustice. It is not earned simply by being rich, powerful or educated,” he wrote on Twitter.

He said that throughout history many great Muslims have been inspired by Karbala and have stood against oppression, colonial rule, and injustice.  “Today, the struggle continues against the oppression of occupation and injustice in occupied Kashmir,” he added.

The number of youth killed by the troops during cordon and search operations in Srinagar, Pulwama and Shopian rose to 10 since Friday.

Yesterday, at least 40 people were wounded after Indian forces fired shotgun pellets and tear gas shells at a Muharram procession in occupied Kashmir, witnesses said.
