It added the Kashmiris’ freedom movement is alive because of the blood of martyrs and the Kashmiri people will keep on treading the martyrs’ path till complete freedom from India. The report said, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) thanked the people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir for observing a shutdown on Burhan Wani’s martyrdom anniversary on July 8 (Thursday). In this regard, the political observers and analysts said that the strike is a clear message to India that it can’t subdue the Kashmiris’ passion for freedom by resorting to merciless killings in the occupied territory. They deplored that Indian troops, as part of their killing spree, recently martyred seven Kashmiris in Pulwama, Kulgam and Rajouri districts of the territory. They said that 1425 Kashmiris have been martyred, 29,656 injured in IIOJK since Burhan Wani’s martyrdom on July 8, 2016.
