Bar Association condemns attack on ‘Rohingya refugees’
High Court Bar Association Srinagar has condemned the torching of seven shacks of Rohingya Muslims by certain communal elements in Bhagwati Area of Jammu, on Friday.
In a statement issued here, Kashmir Bar Association said that the statement of certain police officials saying that it is a case of short circuit is false and an attempt on their part to protect those criminals, who had committed the distressing and horrifying crime.
The Bar Association also condemns the barbaric act of tying of a Kashmiri youth identified as Farooq Ahmad Dar of Chill, Beerwah to the bonnet of a moving Jeep by the Indian Army personnel and besides thrashing and damaging his motorbike.
The Bar Association maintains that all those army personnel, who had committed the aforesaid heinous crime, as well as those CRPF and ITBP personnel who killed eight innocents on 9th of April, 2017 including a teenager who was straightway fired on his head and died on spot, should have been arrested by the police and put behind the bars and dealt with under law.
While police have arrested five boys, who had only heckled a CRPF man on the election day, no action has been taken against the army, CRPF and ITBF personnel for their inhuman and barbaric acts, which shows as to how double standards are applied by Kashmir police in such matters, the statement issued by the Bar said.
The Bar Association once again requests the international community including Amnesty International, Asia Watch and other human rights organizations of the World to take notice of the gruesome events, which are taking place in Kashmir and intervene effectively, to bring an end to such gross human rights violations in Kashmir.
