Srinagar, January 02, 2018 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, a video featuring Fardeen Ahmed Khanday, one of the three youth martyred by Indian troops during an attack on Central Reserve Police Force training center at Lethpora in Pulwama district has gone viral on social media. The seventeen-year old, Fardeen Khanday, is seen in the video with the chilling message of his own death while urging youth to join the fight against India.
“I will be touring the gardens of Jannah by the time this video reaches you,” Fardeen says, pronouncing his own death. In a calm tone, he asserts that India’s narrative of unemployment as one of the reasons for youth joining militancy was mere propaganda.
“Youth are joining militant ranks because they want to fight for their people and against the brutalities unleashed by the Indian government. The tyrants have left no stone unturned in killing and maiming innocent people, outraging the modesty of our women, and looting our precious resources,” he says in the eight-minute video.
Refuting the claims of Indian government that they were successful in eliminating freedom-fighters in Kashmir, he challenges New Delhi by saying, “It’s impossible to defeat us”. Fardeen Ahmed says that his martyrdom will not bring freedom, but adds that it doesn’t mean the people stop fighting. Thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of Fardeen Ahmed Khanday at Hayuna in Tral. He was laid to rest amid pro-freedom and anti-India slogans.
