Forces kill Kashmiris with no regret, remorse: Malik
Srinagar: Condemning the killings in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday termed the ‘killing spree’ in Kashmir as ‘genocide’.
According to a statement issued here, Malik said that “from Handwara to Sopore and Baramulla, Bandipora to Srinagar, Qazigund and Kulgam, blood of Kashmiris is being spilled ruthlessly by forces with no regret or remorse on this human tragedy.”
“First space on political dissent is choked and young Kashmiris are pushed to the wall and left with no other option but to go for ultimate sacrifice and then they are massacred at will by forces,” he said.
Expressing anguish over the killing of yet another unarmed civilian Raof Ahmad Ganai who was killed at Kulgam, Malik said that “another budding flower has been trampled under military boots and dozens have been injured many of whom are critical.”
“The rulers and their supporters have no remorse or regret on this human loss and instead they are enjoying and cherishing this human tragedy. Appreciating and rewarding those who directly aim at heads and chests and drag or mutilate dead bodies is criminal and has turned forces like savages who have no respect for humanity or humans,” he said.
He said that “ongoing bloodshed in Kashmir is the result of the illogical approach of rulers who treat Jammu Kashmir as their occupied colony and use their forces to kill, maim, humiliate, arrest and subjugate Kashmiris.”
Expressing solidarity with the bereaved families of slain persons, Malik said that “our hearts go to these bereaved families and we pray to Allah for their Sabr-I-Jameel.”
