Kashmiris won’t rest until accomplish Jammu Martyrs’ mission: Mushaal


Mushaal Mullick Chairperson Peace and Culture Organisation, while paying rich tributes to the martyrs of Jammu massacre on their martyrdom anniversary, said that the brave Kashmiri people would carry on the martyrs’ mission till they achieve their inalienable right to self-determination.
Mushaal, wife of detained senior hurriyat leader Yasin Malik, in a statement on ‘Jammu Martyrs’ Day’ observed on both sides of the Line of Control and across the world on Sunday, reiterated that Kashmiris would accomplish the mission of their martyrs at all costs. She said that the Jammu massacre was the reminder of the criminal face of Hindutva forces, as scars of the gruesome massacre of Jammu Muslims are still fresh in the memory of Kashmiri people.
The Chairperson stated that on November 6, Jammu Muslims in huge numbers, including men, women and children were seemingly dispatched towards Pakistan in trucks but before they could reach their destination, they were attacked by Hindu extremists, Indian army and forces of Maharaja at Samba, Reasi and other places and martyred in a gruesome manner.
The hurriyat leader narrated that in 1947, the anti-Muslim violence started in August and continued till November engulfing the then princely State of Jammu and Kashmir’s eastern districts of Jammu, Udhampur, Reasi and Kathua. She said that RSS-inspired Hindu showed no mercy to women, children or the aged, as thousands of Muslim women were raped on streets.
As the riots spread into the Muslims dominated areas and Hindus slaughtered them mercilessly.
Mushaal stated that some areas in Jammu were subjected to such horrendous torture that roads were covered with dead bodies. “At least 2,37,000 Muslims were systematically exterminated by the forces of the Dogra State and aided by Hindus and Sikhs,” she added.
Mushaal went on to say that Jammu massacre was the first case of ethnic cleansing after the Second World War, adding that gruesome massacre of Jammu Muslims was meant to change J&K’s demography. She said that Jammu massacre of 1947 is a dark blot on the history of mankind. However, Mushaal added that sacrifices rendered by Jammu Muslims are a glorious page of the ongoing Kashmir freedom movement, as the chain of sacrifices that started from Jammu in 1947 is continuing till today in IIOJK.
Mushaal lamented that unheroic muteness of world powers has emboldened India to a chilling campaign of human rights atrocities against innocent Kashmiris. She deplored that 1000,000 Indian military and paramilitary forces operate outside the rule of law under the protective umbrella of an Indian immunity statute. The hurriyat stated that over 500,000 Kashmiris have fell to Indian bullets in the occupied valley during the last 75 years. The chairperson said that RSS-BJP backed Hindutva forces were trying to repeat 1947 Jammu massacre in IIOJK due to the crime of people of the valley to raise voice against the slavery of Indian subjugation.
However, Mushaal vowed that the unparalleled sacrifices of Jammu Muslims would never go waste and Kashmiris determined to continue resisting Indian brutality with courage and valour till turn the dream of breaking the shackle of Indian slavery.
The hurriyat leader urged the world to take immediate steps to stop merciless killings of the Kashmiris and Narendra Modi and his cohorts must be held accountable for their war crimes and crimes against humanity in IIOJK.
She warned that the unresolved Kashmir dispute could provide the spark to light the South Asian’s nuclear fuse; hence steps should be taken on war-footing basis to resolve the decades-long Kashmir dispute as per the aspirations of Kashmiri people.
