Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir condemn the civilian killings in south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
In a statement JEI spokesman said that the indiscriminate firing upon the peaceful and unarmed protesters in Ganawpora Shopian by the forces resulting in the death of two youths namely Javid Ahmad Bhat (20) of Balpora and Suhail Javid Lone (24) of Rawalpora and injuries to a dozen of other protesting people is a glaring example of the brutality and inhuman treatment towards the Kashmiris.
“The people here are demanding their birthright of ‘self-determination’ which no power on the earth can deny them for long. Kashmiris are sacrificing for the cherished goal of freedom from forces and this goal will be turned into reality soon,” the spokesman said.
The spokesman added that Jama’at-e-Islami while expressing its heartfelt sympathy with the bereaved families of civilians and wishing an early recovery of the injured, appeals all nations believing in justice and sanity to come to the rescue of the hapless and oppressed Kashmiri people and exercise their influence to build pressure upon the Indian establishment to give the people here their birthright ‘right to self-determination’ and ‘stop the state-sponsored terrorism against them’.
