JRL leaders said that Kashmiri mothers, sisters and daughters are under attack from some hidden enemy. We as a nation are living in an unrelenting horror and worry but so-called rulers, their police and other agencies remain absolutely naïve about it. So-called rulers are busy riding scooters and arranging music concerts and their forces and agencies are calling this menace as mere frenzy.

JRL leaders said that Hundreds of our sisters have been left shaken by unidentified assailants and police and forces who take no time to identify even masked protesters and take no time in finding the hidden faces behind every happening and are punctual while crushing the peaceful political activities till now claim no breakthrough. This ignorance is actually proving that entire matter is doubtful and situation extremely startling. Emphasizing on the need of unity to fight this menace, JRL leaders said that while dealing this threat, we should enhance our society based vigil and deal with nobility.
