JRL calls for shutdown on Friday in Sopore, Zainageer

Srinagar, Sep 10: The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, has made a fervent appeal to the people of Sopore and Zainageer to observe a complete shutdown on September 14, Friday, as a strong protest against the “gruesome” killing of Hakeem-ur-Rehman Sultani of Bomai Sopore.
The leadership in a statement said the decision was taken after taking a keen account of the report submitted by the nominated committee.
“The public revelations alleged that the invisible hand of agencies in the gruesome killing can’t be ruled out,” JRL said.
According to a statement, Geelani, Mirwaiz and Malik met at Hyderpora Srinagar and the meeting expressed its grave concern on the revival of “custodial” as well as the mysterious killings in Jammu and Kashmir.
Citing the case of Ashfaq Ahmad Wani at Naseem Bagh Srinagar and the “brutal” killing of Hakeem-ur-Rehman at Bomai Sopore, the JRL blamed “fascist regime for designing conspiracies to drive a wedge in unwavering unity of the people of Kashmir displayed to foil the nefarious designs to change the demography and state subject law, in addition, to thrust any sham elections on the people of the state”.
