Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that Kashmiri martyrs sacrificed their lives for a sacred cause and the sacrifices would not be allowed to go waste. They deplored that no action had been taken, so far, against the killers of the innocent people despite passing of sixteen years.
He maintained that the ongoing movement would be taken to its logical conclusion and appealed the international community to help resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with Kashmiris’ aspirations and relevant United Nations resolutions.
It is worth mentioning here that more than 55 people were martyred, hundreds of shops and houses gutted down and property worth crores of rupees was destroyed by the BSF troopers in Sopore on January 6, 1993, in vengeance of the killing of their colleague in a firing incident in the area.
