Hum Pakistani hain, Pakistan hamara hai

Its still going on, people are still coming from all over the valley to show solidarity , slogans of azadi, "Hamari mandi Rawlpandi" and many more reverberating the whole of Srinagar. I just spoke to my journalist friend who was near the UNO office said, doctors, Advocates, businessmen , students , Ngo's all made this UNO office Chalo a success.

Mirwaiz Umar in his speech demanded that people should be granted the right to self determination, In a mammoth gathering Umar said that all the draconian laws should be repealed He said all this amid people roaring with pro-azadi slogans. Meanwhile what is pertinent to mention here is that while Syed Ali Shah Geelani was asking the audience who is their real leader, the other Hurriyat leaders could be seen whispering to each other. Geelani said, ""Do you have faith in my leadership? I will be faithful to you till my death and will carry everyone along, “We are Pakistanis and Pakistan is us because we are tied with the country through Islam," he roared, as the crowd cheered him and chanted: "Hum Pakistani hain, Pakistan hamara hai" (We are Pakistanis, Pakistan is ours).

Boycott Fake Kashmir Election

In occupied Kashmir, the fourth phase of Indian parliamentary elections, today, was marked with a complete protest strike, anti-India demonstrations and an overall people’s boycott of the polls. The polling remained abysmally low and the polling booths gave a deserted look. In many localities of Srinagar city, the polling was below than one percent and at many places Indian troops forcibly herded people towards polling booths.

Fake casting of votes by the occupation authorities was also noticed.

People took to the streets in protest against the holding of elections in Lal Chowk, Chanapora, Qamarwari, Nattipora, Barzalla, Zaindar Mohallah, Fateh Kadal, Batamaloo and Aarigam. Pro Freedom, Pro Pakistan and anti-election slogans were raised on the occasion. Dozens of people were injured when Indian terrorists army and police personnel resorted to massive tear gas shelling to disperse the protesting youth. Clashes between the protestors and the Indian police personnel were witnessed at Zenakot till last reports came in. Unidentified youth hurled a petrol bomb at a polling station in Lal Bazaar. A special police officer was killed in an attack in Neeldhok in Rajouri.

The occupation authorities had placed Hurriyet leaders including the APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Syed Ali Gilani and Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi under house arrest. Thousands of policemen and paramilitary troopers wearing bulletproof jackets and carrying assault rifles were seen marching the deserted streets of Srinagar. The troops had erected the barricades and laid concertina wires to foil anti-election protests.

The APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq talking to the KMS on telephone said that the indifference shown by the people towards the election drama should serve as an eye opener to India that should come forward in a serious manner to resolve the Kashmir dispute, once and for all.
