“In order to express solidarity with the besieged population of Indian occupied Kashmir, to draw attention of the international community towards the state terrorism unleashed by India in the held territory and to press it to get the lingering issue permanently and democratically resolved on a priority basis, we have taken a revolutionary decision to stage a ‘peaceful people’s freedom march’ from Bhimber to Chakothi under the leadership of acting JKLF chairman Abdul Hameed Butt,” mentioned Dar.
“Later, we would trample down the bloody line or the so-called ceasefire line that splits the state of Jammu and Kashmir from Chakothi sector,” the spokesperson added, referring to the LoC.

Responding to a query, Dar mentioned that if the AJK authorities comes up with every other date earlier than or quickly after October Four for the cross-LoC march, the JKLF could be able to readjust the date for the sake of nationwide consensus.
