The Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, on Saturday, strongly condemned the puppet IOK authorities for resorting to use of unbridled force to prevent a march towards Islamabad town where a peaceful rally was to be held.

The resistance leaders in a joint statement said that the rally, which was to be held at Lal Chowk in Islamabad, on Friday, was aimed at expressing solidarity with the people of south Kashmir who had been facing the worst kind of Indian State terrorism for the past few months.

They said that the imposition of strict curfew, caging resistance leaders and conducting raids and blocking all the roads reflected the acceptance of defeat by the authorities as it signified their nervousness and fear of exposure just on the call of peaceful rallies given by the resistance leadership.

Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, Zafar Akbar Butt, Javaid Ahmed Mir, Shabbir Ahmed Dar, Muhammad Iqbal Mir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, Ghulam Nabi War and Muhammad Yasin Attai in their statements paid rich tributes to noted liberation leaders, Sofi Muhammad Akbar and Shamas-ul-Haq, on their death anniversaries.
