Press Note Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.

Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai said ,The deliberate planning of the government of India to keep the people here starved of all the basic necessities of the life can be easily drawn from the frequent closure of the Unnatural Srinagar-Jammu highway. Sehrai said,Since 1947 ,it is a deliberate policy to seal all other natural and traditional  routes and choke Kashmiri people and leave them to suffer and make them into submission by making kashmiris dependent on unnatural route .

We are deliberately made to strive, as is the case with closure of the Srinagar-Jammu highway. Our natural routes have been blocked,and people have to understand this conspiracy.He said our resources are being looted and illegally exploited.He Further, added that Jammu and Kashmir is rich in natural resources,which is a guarantee for our secure future.But despite being rich in natural resources, occupied Kashmir is being kept under-developed intentionally,and it is the policy by the Government of India to make Kashmiris more and more dependent and ensure that we don’t become self-reliant.He said that India was strengthening its economic position by exploiting natural resources of the occupied territory.

Expressing serious concern over the plight of thousands of stranded passengers due to the continuous closure of  Unnatural highway, Sehrai has demanded the resue of these passengers to their respective destinations.These passengers are stranded on highway and at Jammu without food and shelter.At the same time Airline companies started their brazen Loot as they sky rocketed Airfare that too right under the nose of govt which added further miseries, kept passengers suffer and stranded.People are witnessing a complete apathy and brazen callousness of the (government) authorities,” Sehrai said.

Meanwhile,Tehreek e Hurriyat strongly denounces the continuous house arrest of its chairman Mohd Ashraf Sehrai and arresting of party workers Syed Imtiyaz Haider,Ashraf Laya and other activists on the EVE of Martyr's Anniversaries and said ,Such undemocratic tactics will not deter pro-freedom leadership from pursuing the just cause.
