Jalandhar, Punjab (July 23, 2013): Expressing solidarity with Kashmir cause, the Dal Khalsa has called upon J&K Sikhs to join hands with Kashmiri Muslims in observing ‘Unity Day’ on July 26.
Notably, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani has asked the people to observe July 26, Friday, as ‘Day of Unity’ between Muslim population of Jammu and Kashmir provinces and in the memory of Gool martyrs.
In a statement party head Harchranjit Singh Dhami urged Buzarag Geelani Sahib to extend their appeal for Unity to other minorities especially Sikhs residing in J&K also as they too were at receiving end.
He said at this critical juncture Sikhs should lend support to Kashmiris against New Delhi’s aggression. Alleging that India has copied British’s divide and rule policy, he said New Delhi has always played divisive role pitting one section of people against another.
Strongly condemning the recent phase of state repression on Kashmiris, he said it is ironic that the Indian civil society and western powers were witnessing human rights abuses committed by the Indian forces as a mute spectator. “The killings and detentions of young Kashmiris have become the order of the day and the state CM Omar Abdullah was being used as a tool to suppress the aspirations of the people”.
