The Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) Chairman Muhammad Yasin Khan on Saturday condemned the police action on women who were demanding ration near Amira Kadal here.

In a statement issued this evening, Khan said, “it was shame for the government that the women who were demanding their right to get genuine share in ration were fed with batons and teargas.”

“A government which is intolerant to peaceful protests for food has not right to exist in a democratic setup. The Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, IGP Kashmir, the DC are answerable as to how come brute force was used on the women who were staging peaceful protests,” Khan said.

He said the KEA upholds public sentiment against the implementation of the food bill. “This controversial food bill is one of the misgivings of the previous regime, which is again taking to power and we will fight for its revocation tooth and nail,” Khan said.

Khan said police action on women was no less than attempt to molestation and that the Governor NN Vohra must personally look into the matter and take examplenary action against the guilty officials.

“Use of muscle power on innocent women in condemnable in every sensible setup and thus condemn this barbaric action,” Khan said.
