Thousands attend funerals of Sopore martyrs
In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred two more Kashmiri youth in Sopore town, today.

The troops martyred the youth during a cordon and search operation in Gund Brath area of the town. The victims were identified as Tahir Ahmad Dar and Owais Ahmad Butt. They were residents of Warpora and Gund Brath areas of Sopore. The killings triggered clashes between protesters and Indian forces’ personnel in the town. Many youth were injured when the troops fired pellets, bullets and teargas shells on the protesters. 

Thousands of people attended the funeral prayers of the martyred youth at their native villages. A large number of people from different areas of Sopore including Brath Kalan, Saidpora, Dangarpora and other adjoining localities assembled at the villages of the martyrs as the news of their death spread. Thousands of mourners raising pro-freedom slogans marched with the bodies of the martyred youth in their native areas before lowering them into the graves.

The Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmr, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement paid glorious tributes to the martyrs. He said the oppressive measures cannot deter the valiant people of Kashmir from raising their demand for right to self-determination.

Meanwhile, complete shutdown was observed in Sopore and adjoining areas against the killing of Tahir Dar and Owais Butt. All shops and other commercial establishments were closed while traffic was off the road. The occupation authorities suspended mobile internet services in Sopore. Shutdown was observed in Hajin on the fifth straight day to mourn the killings of two teenage boys, Saqib Bilal Shaikh and Mudassir Rasheed Parray.

The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar urged the human rights bodies and International Court of Justice to take a serious note of unabated judicial terrorism inflicted by India on Kashmiri people and pro-freedom leadership. He said that Indian authorities were using different tactics to prolong the illegal detention of the Kashmiri political prisoners.
