Clean chit to army means justifying genocide of Kashmiris: Malik

KL Report


“Clean chit by Indian army to its killer officers who murdered innocent Kashmiri’s at Pathribal in year 2000 is like justifying the genocide of Kashmiri’s. Killing civilians in the name of foreign militants and then giving killers clean chit is an ugly stain on the Indian democracy,” this was stated by the chairman of Jammu Kashmir liberation front Mohammad Yasin Malik while speaking to media today.

According to a statement issued to KNS, Malik said that on 26th march 2000 Indian army killed 5 innocents after abducting them from their houses and dubbed then as foreign militants who were involved in massacre of Sikh brethren at Chitisinghpora.

The then state chief minister Farooq Abdullah and then home minister of India L K Advani wasted no time in hailing the efforts of their forces but after people’s  protest  against these killings, announced a probe and punishment for guilty. During the investigations even the samples of DNA were changed many a times but still it was proved beyond doubt that Indian forces had murdered innocents in cold blood for their petty gains and promotions and also for covering up the massacre of Sikh community at Chiti Singh Pora.

Even the prime Indian investigation agency CBI in 2012 pleading before the Indian Supreme Court said “the alleged fake encounters at Pathribal in Jammu Kashmir 12 years ago in which seven people were killed by army personnel were cold–blooded murders and the accused officials deserved to be meted out exemplary punishment”. CBI senior counsel told the court no prior sanction was required for prosecuting the army officials and the need to ensure public confidence in the rule of law and dispensation of justice warranted their prosecution.” CBI told the court that “our investigations have revealed it was a fake encounter and cold blooded murders”.

Malik said now after 14 years we are being told that army has found no evidence of their involvement in the massacre and that army has closed this case. Yasin said that this denial and shielding killers ands murderers is not new as Indian army and rulers before this also shielded the killers and criminals involved in Gaw Kadal, Sopore, Handwara, Bijbihara, Kawdara, Tengpora ,Zakura, Bandipora, Poonch, Baderwah massacres and Kunan Poshpora like crimes. Yasin said that today Indian army has kicked out Indian democracy, law and even its highest court because these killers know that they are protected by black laws like AFSPA etc.

Malik said that the Indian politicians and their stooges in Kashmir (Pro-India parties ,leaders of Kashmir) are actually involved in these crimes as they provide the shields like PSA and AFSPA to these killer forces and whenever any crises arises try to defuse it by  issuing orders and statements of  probe and punishing the culprits. Yasin said that Indian occupation on Jammu Kashmir is because of these forces that is why they are being provided immunity to kill kashmiris at will .Yasin Malik said that kashmiri’s will not take this issue lightly and we will protest against this impunity with full force. Yasin announced that JKLF will protest against this criminal attitude of Indian state on Friday, 31stJanuary 2014 at Lal Chowk.
