The Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, paid rich tributes to the martyrs, saying that India was trying to snatch the right to live from the Kashmiri youth by pushing them to the wall. The leaders said that even educational institutions were not safe from Indian oppression, as heavy buildup of forces around colleges and universities was creating fear and harassment among the students. They condemned the arrest of students in Srinagar, Sopore, Baramulla, Islamabad and Pulwama areas. The JRL also denounced the arrest of Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chief Aasiya Andrabi along with her associates by Indian police.
