In occupied Kashmir, veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that India is trying to crush the Kashmiris'liberation struggle through use of brute force ahead of the US President, Barrack Obama's visit to India. According to Kashmir Media Service, Syed Ali Gilani, in a statement issued in Srinagar, termed the attempt by the occupation authorities to quell the ongoing movement forcefully as an effort to hoodwink the international community about the situation in the occupied territory. He asked the people of Kashmir to keep unity among their ranks to foil nefarious designs of the authorities to harm the movement. "Peace and stability in South Asia cannot prevail till the resolution of Kashmir dispute," he added. Appealing the people to make protest programme, announced by him as a part of 'Quit Kashmir Movement', a success, the veteran Hurriyet leader said that Kashmiris would continue their struggle for right to self-determination till its logical end. He said that if the puppet Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, was sincere to his words then he should resign and join the pro-freedom camp. Felicitating the Hajj aspirants, Syed Ali Gilani said that they should say special prayers for success of the liberation movement in Jammu and Kashmir. "Sacrifices of the Kashmiri people have centre-staged the Kashmir dispute. International community understands that Kashmiris' movement is an indigenous freedom struggle against Indian occupation," he maintained.
