Kashmir’s Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik on Sunday demanded impartial probe by UNHRC or by some international agency into Machil Kupwara encounter, wherein reportedly three youth were reportedly killed in a “fake encounter” on June 6. 

In a statement here the they expressed their deep grief and concern over the killing of three youth including Zahid Rashid (Kantpora Kulgam) in “mysterious circumstances” and termed it a very sensitive issue and a matter of concern for all. “The youth were brutally massacred and buried in mysterious circumstances,” they said. “We feel the pain of separation and the demand for their burials according religious rituals is humanitarian.

“Various deputations called on joint resistance leadership and briefed and apprised about the situations arising about reluctance of authorities,” the statement said.

 It said, “During the interaction the deputation said that authorities are reluctant to return the bodies of youth killed in Machil Kupwara encounter. Denying burial (of deceased youth) as per religious rites is insensitive and callous,” the statement added.

“It is matter of grave concern that forces detain and later kill our youth in far-off places and bury them in unknown graves. The joint leadership appealed international community to initiate an impartial probe and ascertain the identity of those buried in unmarked graves,” it said.

“We are facing state sponsored oppression since past 70 years, saying our nation despite all odds and tough situations are braving and facing bullets and pellets with exemplary valour and firm determination,” the statement added. 

“Kashmiris will continue with their struggle till the goal is achieved and instead of facing resistance  leaders on political turf. They are being caged and forces are carrying massacre. We will never surrender or succumb to pressure but will pursue our cherished mission till it is taken to its logical conclusion,” it said.

“Authorities should read writing on the  wall force, intimidations, detentions and killing won’t force us into submission. Kashmir issue has to be resolved in its historical perspective and as per aspirations of subjugated people,” the statement said.
