SRINAGAR | APR 07 (PTK): Various Sikh organizations including Sikh Intellectuals Circle J&K, Sikh Students Federation and Sikh Youth of J&K today appealed the people of Kashmir to boycott the forth coming by elections that are going to be held in Srinagar and Anantnag constituency on April 9 and April 11.

S Narinder Khalsa, Chairman Sikh Intellectual Circle said that Kashmir will boycott the upcoming by-poll elections because that will be the real tribute to our martyrs and all the victims of Indian brutalities.

“We believe that there can be no peace here unless Kashmir issue is resolved as per the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiri people,” Khalsa said adding “India is misleading the world community by theses farce elections under the shadow of guns”
Khalsa said that he supports the boycott call against elections given by the resistance camp.

“We are the part and the parcel of Hurriyat and stand taken by entire Hurriyat leadership is based on the reality. So, we appeal people, particularly Sikh community to boycott these elections for the cause of Kashmir,” he said.

He further said that the Sikh community condemns the innocent killings that are going on a large scale in Kashmir.
“We strongly condemn the civilian killings particularly the recent killings of Chadoora and the arrests spree of innocent people in the valley by the security forces”

“The protests against human right violation in Kashmir and the millions of people coming out on streets reflects that there is serious need to look into the Kashmir issue,” he added. (PTK)
