In its colonial apatite New Delhi through its huge military might unleashed a reign of unprecedented brutalities and atrocities for the last over seven decades. To sustain its illegitimate and illegal occupation New Delhi has been indulging in worst kind of human rights violations and war crimes in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.

He maintained that no amount of Indian atrocities could deter the people of Jammu and Kashmir from pursuing their struggle for right to self-determination.
Tehreek-e-Muzahamat Chairman Bilal Ahmed Siddiqui in a statement issued in Srinagar termed the 27th October 1947 as most unfortunate day of human history. “Since then through its military might, New Delhi has killed and murdered tens of thousands of innocent people, dishonored women and tortured, injured, maimed and disappeared thousands of youth in the occupied territory.” He pledged to honor the unmatched sacrifices of Kashmiri people by continuing the struggle for freedom with full determination and honesty.
