ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: While paying tributes to victims of 1994 massacre, Mushaal Hussein Mullick, the wife of Chairman Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Yasin Malik, said that justice continued to elude the families of the victims of the massacre even after the passage of 27 years.

Mushaal, who is also Chairperson of Peace and Culture Organisation, in a statement paid glowing tributes to the victims of the Kupwara massacre on their 27 martyrdom anniversary.

Complete shutdown was observed in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) on Wednesday to remember the victims of a deadly massacre carried out by Indian troops in 1994.

All shops and other business establishments are closed in the town while traffic was off the road.

Indian troops had mercilessly killed twenty-seven innocent Kashmiris on this day in 1994 to punish the people for observing shutdown on Indian Republic Day in the town.

She deplored that the Indian forces involved in the massacre had not been punished till date.

Mushaal appealed to the international human rights organizations to fulfill their responsibilities in this regard.

The Chairperson made it clear that the great sacrifices of the martyrs would not be allowed to go in vain and the peaceful struggle would continue come what may.

She said that the brave Kashmiris would take the freedom struggle to its logical conclusion at all costs.

She vowed that Kashmiri freedom fighters would achieve their goal very soon.

Mushaal said that the world community and human right organizations should shun the criminal silence and press the Indian government to liberate Kashmiri people of inhuman Indian occupation.
