Dukhtaran-e-Millat on Wednesday castigated armed forces and the JK Police for using “extreme” force against the mourners and the family members of slain militants at several places in the past week.
In a statement, DeM general secretary, Nahida Nasreen, said that “Indian oppression” is growing with every passing day and its occupying forces are adopting new “oppressive measures to muzzle the voices of people” here.
They kill militants and when people gather at their residences, forces use brute force against them. This has happened at several places in the past one week. “It is nothing but state terrorism in its worst form,” she said.
Nasreen said that similar acts of “terrorism by these forces” were reported from Shopian, Kulgam and Pampore and Bandipora areas last week. “When a Mujahid is martyred and then there is a condolence meeting at his residence, it has been seen in the past one week, that these terrorist in uniform come and use brute force against everyone including women and children,” she added.
In Pampore, she said, while the condolence meeting was going and tributes were being paid by thousands of people to Adil Mir at his residence, forces surrounded the house from all sides and barged inside and beat everyone present there without any reason. “Men were brutalized, women beaten to pulp and many youth were arrested without any reason at all,” she said
She said that the posters of slain militants were brought down, tents were set on fire and trampled under feet and then everyone, who they could catch hold of, was beaten to pulp. “Many were seriously injured while scores were arrested by these uniformed terrorists. This is height of repression being employed by India in Kashmir,” she said.
“This shows how immoral and inhuman this country can be that on one hand they claim to be ‘world’s largest democracy’ and on the other hand use brute force against the mourners, children , men , women and everyone in Kashmir,” she added.
