Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir strongly condemn the “cold-blooded murder” of youth in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district.
A spokesman of the outfit in a statement said that Ishfaq Ahmad (28 years) son of Nazir Ahmad Ganaie resident of Magraypora Chadoora in district Budgam by army soldiers (55RR camp) without any justification while he was driving his scooter on Chatergam-Gowharpora road near Zainpora crossing by hitting him with several bullet shots in the evening on late last night.
“The bullets ruptured his skull causing his death soon thereafter,” the spokesman said.
“He was a carpenter by profession and is survived by his wife and two children. In the same fashion, the personnel belonging to the same camp murdered two persons from Nowgam in the recent past and no one was tried or punished for the gruesome crime as they have free license to kill or injure any Kashmiri at their will for being immune from any legal action under the meticulously drafted armed forces special powers act. This law stands in force only in Kashmir to suppress the genuine voice of the oppressed people who have been forcibly subjugated against their will,” the spokesman said.
“The silence of the international organizations and human rights bodies and watching the state-sponsored terrorism against the common masses as mute spectators is most regrettable adversely affecting the credibility and image of these very institutions,” he said.
“Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir demanded a high-level probe by some impartial judicial agency so as to bring the real culprits to book and get them appropriately punished,” said spokesman of the outfit in a statement.
