"According to the 'Joint Resistance' programme, people and leadership will move towards UN office in Srinagar to remind the world body of its promises made to the people of Kashmir who are suffering so much because of its inaction," said a statement issued by moderate Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

"If we are stopped we will sit wherever we are and protest for 72 hours on the streets of Kashmir peacefully," he added.

He said the UN cannot watch the "massacre" in Kashmir as a "mute spectator" as it is "duty bound" by its umpteen resolutions to intervene, stop the killings and implement the resolutions as soon as possible.

Expressing deep pain and anguish at the fresh spurt of killings, Mirwaiz said, "the resilience and defiance of the people of Jammu and Kashmir in face of such oppression is a loud and clear message that they will not give up their struggle and the agitation will not die its own death as some would like the people of India and world to believe."
