Taking a dig at unionist opposition parties from J&K, Srinagar Bar association Srinagar Tuesday said that the visit of Omar Abdullah led delegation to New Delhi has been “exposed”.

“Those who had gone to Delhi to persuade the President and Prime Minister of India to enter into dialogue with all stake holders for solving the Kashmir problem exposed themselves as state has responded with deployment of BSF whose record of ruthless suppression of people at Papa I and Papa II and killing of innocents civilians in custody and otherwise, is still fresh in the minds of the people,” the Bar said.

The association criticized Chief Minister Ms Mehbooba Mufti saying she “mislead” the people by saying that it is only 5% of the population of Kashmir which is holding 95% of them in hostage.

“The deployment of more than 13 companies of BSF personnel in downtown/uptown Srinagar which inhabits substantial chunk of Kashmir population has only exposed her,” the lawyers bodies said.

The Bar condemned the killing of Fateh Kadal youth, Irfan Ahmad Wani, and injuring of hundreds of Kashmiris in different parts of valley by the “ruthless forces”.

It requested the Amnesty International and other human rights organisation including the International Red Cross to send its teams to Kashmir to know the ground situation.

The Bar Association said, “the people of the world who have respect for human rights that the struggle of the people of Kashmir for achieving their Right of Self Determination, guaranteed to them by 27 Security Council Resolutions is indigenous and neither is it sponsored by any group or country nor are any pecuniary considerations involved in it.”
