KCC&I, transporters protest in response to JRL’s call
Srinagar: The protests in response of the Joint Resistance Leadership’s (JRL) call over Human Rights violation continued for the sixth straight in the Valley on Saturday.
JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik had called for protests against human rights violations in Kashmir and had also appealed people to observe December 3 to 9 as human rights week.
The transporters and Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industries (KCC&I) today staged separate protest in Srinagar against the HR violations.
Reports said that scores of KCC&I members headed by its president Sheikh Ashiq assembled at Srinagar’s Press Enclave and chanted slogans against the HR violations and killings in Kashmir.
The members of KCC&I said that there must be an immediate end to the human rights violation in the State as thousands of people have been killed, maimed and blinded in the State so far.
“Even the 18-month-old baby was not spared as she lost her eyesight due to pellet injury in her right eye,” they said, adding that Human rights organizations should take notice over such violations here and help in putting an end to the violations.
Meanwhile, scores of transporters also staged a protest in Partap Park in Srinagar.
Amid sloganeering, the protesting transporters were carrying banners, reading slogans like “Stop Killing Kashmiris”, “Stop genocide of Kashmiris” and “Kashmiryun ka qatal aam band Karo band Karo”.
The protesters appealed to the world community to raise their voice against the ongoing killings of Kashmiris, arresting of innocent youths and harassment of people.
