Expressing anguish over the killings in South Kashmir’s Shopian and Chattabal area of Srinagar, Dukhtaran-e-Millat on Tuesday paid the rich glowing tributes to slain militants and civilians, killed in forces action.

She said that the freedom movement has seen many such unfortunate phases since 1947. “So we should not lose hope inshaAllah, this movement will continue until the government forces leave Kashmir and we decide our future,” the spokesman quoted DeM saying.

The spokesman said that the statement of JKP’s DGP  that they act against militants based on the inputs from the people is a blatant lie and baseless. The reality is that some conscienceless people sell themselves and do such sinful acts. Otherwise, the whole Kashmiri nation shows extreme love for militants.

She said that authorities should also know that most of the militants are highly qualified; who before joining militancy used to work on respectable posts and come from well-to-do families. “On the contrary, the people who work as informers and for government parties are those who are very poor and their miseries are being exploited by the government forces and are forced to become informers,” she added.

Meanwhile, the spokesman said the government has extended the remand of the party chairperson, Syedah Aasiyeh Andrabi and her associates for 10 more days. “Today, she was supposed to be brought to court in Islamabad for hearing, but due to the ongoing situation across Kashmir, she was not brought to the court. The 10-day remand order was sent to the jail,” the spokesman added.

Condemning the detention of the party chairperson and others, a spokesman said that Andrabi Sahiba’s health has deteriorated to a large extent as no medical or other facility has been made available to her in the jail.
