Forces cook up covering stories to justify killings: Malik
Srinagar: Condemning the killing of Chadoora youth and a girl from Kulgam who succumbed t her injuries on Saturday, Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Muhammad Yasin Malik Saturday termed killing spree as ‘worst kind of savagery’.
Malik who is languishing at jail has condemned what he termed as brutal killing of yet another Kashmiri youth, Ishfaq Ahmad of Khanda Chatargam, saying that “Ishfaq was fired upon and killed with impunity by forces and another Kashmiri girl Muskaan Jan of Wanigund Koimuh Kulgam who was fired upon by forces recently and after battling for her life in hospital succumbed to her injuries today.”
Malik as per a statement issued here said that “after killing humans at will, the forces cook up covering stories and come up with lame excuses to justify their horrible acts.”
He said that “when a person equipped with arms and ammunition is given immunity and legal shield and ordered to kill anyone coming his way, he is bound to turn beastly and into a killing machine.”
“Colonial mindset is ruthlessly continuing its genocidal policy in Kashmir but it has failed to realize that its oppressive measures have failed to suppress Kashmiri resistance in past and are bound to fail in future too,” he said.
While expressing his solidarity with the bereaved families of Ishfaq Ahmad and Muskaan Jan, Malik prayed for their heavenly abode.
Meanwhile, JKLF has paid tributes to Kashmiris including Azad Ahmad Malik, Basit Mir, Firdous Ahmad, Shahid Bashir, Anees Shafi and Aatif Ahmad who were killed at Bijbihara Anantnag yesterday.
