January 21, 2022

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the occupation authorities further intensified restrictions and lockdown in the territory, today [Friday], to prevent people from paying tributes to the victims of Gaw Kadal massacre on their martyrdom anniversary.

Over 50 innocent people were killed in Gaw Kadal area of Srinagar on this day in 1990 when Indian forces had resorted to indiscriminate firing on peaceful demonstrators who were protesting against the molestation of several women by the troops on the previous night.

Meanwhile, people observed shutdown in Maisuma, Gaw Kadal and other areas of Srinagar to commemorate the 32nd anniversary of the deadly massacre.

Hurriyat activists held anti-India demonstrations in Gaw Kadal and Basant Bagh areas against the carnage.

The Hurriyat leaders in their statements demanded an impartial probe by an international organization into all incidents of mass killings in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to punish the involved Indian troops.

On the other hand, the APHC-AJK chapter leaders in a conference in Islamabad, today, termed the Gaw Kadal massacre as the worst example of Indian state terrorism in the territory.  

In Kuala Lumpur, members of Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organizations and other organisations submitted a memorandum to the Indian High Commissioner to Malaysia and called upon the Indian authorities to take actions against the Hindutva hate mongers who called for the genocide of Muslims in India.
