SRINAGAR, Aug 5(KMW): A sit-in cum protest rally was conducted by Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) today against NIA’s raids, arrests and interrogation of the resistance leadership. The sit-in was followed by a rally taken out from Madina Chowk (Maisuma) upto Lal Chowk. Pro-freedom activists chanting anti-NIA and anti-India slogans accused the Home Ministry of India of choking the voice of the resistance camp by implicating them in various cases that New Delhi has been making up all along these decades.
The rally was led by senior Hurriyat leader and Chairman PPP, Er. Hilal Ahmad War who, in conversation with the media, lashed out at New Delhi saying that NIA has no business in Kashmir and the agency of an occupational country can’t muzzle the voice of the Kashmiris and their genuine aspirations. JKLF senior leader Noor Mohammad Kalwal, Bashir Kashmiri, Mukhtar Ahmed Sofi, Mushtaq Ahmad Sofi and others were among the protesters.
