ISLAMABAD: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has called for a complete shutdown in Indian Illegally-Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) on Friday.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the shutdown is meant to protest against the posting of a blasphemous video by an Indian student regarding Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

It is also aimed at protesting against unjust arrests, booking of seven Kashmiri students under draconian law, dismissal of Kashmiri government employees and confiscation of people’s properties.

The APHC in a statement urged the inhabitants of the occupied territory to make the strike a success. It also asked them to organize protest demonstrations on Friday against the posting of blasphemous videos by the non-Kashmiri Hindu student.

APHC leaders including Muhammad Khan Sopori, Advocate Arshad Iqbal,Abdul Ahad, Muhammad Saleem Zargar, Fayyaz Hussain Jafari, Khawaja Firdous, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Sibte Shabbir Qummi, Imtiaz Reshi and Maulana Musaib Nadvi in their statements in Srinagar strongly condemned the religious bigotry and terrorism of the Hindutva forces aided and abetted by the Modi government’s puppet administration in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

They also asked the territory’s people to observe a total shutdown and hold protest demonstrations on Friday.

It is to be mentioned here that the students at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in the Hazratbal area of Srinagar staged a massive demonstration, yesterday after an Indian student studying at the institute posted a derogatory video clip on social media about the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

The Indian police further exacerbated tensions by booking seven students from the Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) to celebrate Australia’s victory against India in the World Cup final.

Also, while continuing the arrest spree, the occupation authorities are terminating the Kashmiri government employees and confiscating the properties of the individuals to punish them for their affiliation with the ongoing freedom movement. —APP
