Srinagar, April 02, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has urged the people to completely boycott the sham Indian Parliamentary elections scheduled to be held in seven phases from 11 April to 19 May 2019 in India and the occupied territory.
Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said, the Kashmiris could not be part of the Indian parliament where laws and resolutions are passed only to throttle and subjugate their voice for freedom. He said democracy has lost its values in occupied Kashmir where people are threatened and caged in fictitious and false cases. However, he made it clear that such maneuvering could never cow down the freedom loving Kashmiri people.
Thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of four youth martyred by Indian troops in Lassipora area of Pulwama district, the other day. The martyrs Tawseef Ahmad Ittoo, Zafar Ahmad Paul, Aaqib Ahmad Kumar and Muhammad Shafi Butt belonged to different areas of Pulwama and Shopian districts. The youth were laid to rest amid high-pitched pro-freedom, pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans. Pakistani flags were also raised during the funerals.
The Chairman of Muslim Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, and other Hurriyat leaders Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Imtiyaz Ahmed Reshi, Ghulam Nabi Waseem and Ghulam Nabi War in their statements in Srinagar said that the attachment of properties of APHC Chairman Syed Ali Gilani and Shabbir Ahmed Shah was being used as a tactic by the Indian authorities to muzzle the voice for freedom in the territory.

The delegation was led by party General Secretary Muhammad Rafiq Ganai. Massive fire engulfed the District Hospital Ramban blazing the main block of the hospital.
