Protest tommorow aganist US action on UJC Chief Syed Salahuddin: Joint Resistance Leadership……..

The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for protests after Friday prayers to protest the US action of branding Hizb chief Syed Salahuddin as a terrorist.
“This unjustified move by the US government to appease the Government of  India and their (US) silence regarding the oppression and human rights situation in Kashmir, is not acceptable to the people of Kashmir who will also strongly protest against it across the valley post Friday prayers tomorrow,” the JRL said in a statement today.
“Protests will also be held against the  illegal and arbitrary arrests and detention of resistance leaders, activists and youth and raid on homes being conducted  across the valley.”
They rued that the US government has strangely designated the veteran freedom fighter leader Syed Salah-ud-din as a terrorist, who “supports the people’s right to self determination and was forced to take up arms to fight  India’s military occupation and oppression”.
JRL said the US is well aware that for the past 70 years the people of J&K are engaged in a long and peaceful struggle for achieving their basic human and political right, the right to self determination, guaranteed by the UN, but ruthlessly resisted and suppressed by the Indian state through use of extreme force.
