Hurriyat (G) protests against ‘unabated killings’
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Friday staged a protest against what they termed as unabated killings, unchecked brutalities and revengeful attitude towards the political prisoners especially those lodged in far-flung jails outside the state.
According to a statement issued here, Mohammad RafiqUwasi while addressing a gathering said that armed forces under the thick cover of the legal impunity have leashed a reign of terror by converting the state in a battle field.
“Whatever they want they are free to do, they want to kill on their own choice, ransack the houses and threaten the inmates in the dead of night and nobody in the administration dares to ask them, why they are doing so?” he said
He questioned the world bodies particularly peace loving nations that when people of East Timor and Scotland are given the opportunity to decide their future, why not Kashmiries? “Is our blood thinner than that population or we don’t qualify to be humans or, we don’t have any right to live a free, peaceful and dignified life? These hard questions need to be answered by the world community,” he said.
Pro-freedom leader said that “our prisoners are treated with hatred and revengeful attitude, denying them the basic requirements guaranteed to them by the domestic and international laws. Their confinement is prolonged by the judicial activism and snail’s pace of court proceedings.”
He said that these inhuman and undemocratic acts can no longer help the oppressor to hold this territory for long and time will come when they will succumb under their own pressure and will be forced to leave this place.
