ISLAMABAD: The veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani has called for complete shutdown and peaceful demonstration in the Indian Occupied territory on Thursday, to protest against the visit of the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
Narendra Modi had tweeted on Tuesday that he would spend Diwali, a Hindu festival, in Srinagar, KMS reported.
The spokesman of Syed Ali Gilani’s forum, Ayaz Akbar, talking to mediamen in Srinagar said that the government of India acted as a mute spectator when the floods hit Jammu and Kashmir and later did nothing to mitigate the sufferings of the affected.
“Also, we are under the forced occupation of India, we will not allow anyone to rub salt on our wounds,” he said, adding, “Another reason for calling the strike is the communal mindset of Modi.”
He pointed out that when Modi did not even felicitate Muslims on Eid, his celebrating Diwali in Jammu and Kashmir was unacceptable.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of Kashmir Economic Alliance, Mohammad Yaseen Khan, talking to media person in Srinagar said, “This is all politics, nothing else.
Modi should have come on Eid as this is a Muslim majority region.”
