Outraged by the murder and mayhem resulting in loss of precious lives, KCSDS Saturday said that “mowing down  of  bright  young talented  boys  as part of  the hidden agenda of slow genocide of Kashmiris”.

In a statement issued late this evening, “It deplores the continued detention of minor school girl and asks the police to release her immediately.”

“Her mother in an interview has confessed that whatever statement has been exacted from her daughter has been got   under pressure. If they have nothing to hide, why do not they release her straight away,” the KCSDS statement.

Condemning the “distortion of facts, of the ground reality by the media, its twisting and turning facts upside down, distorting rights’ discourse and using a language  and semantics that is turning tables against the victims of state terrorism and presenting them as culprits,” the KCSDS said, “this is the ultimate shame media could succumb to.”

KCSDS expressed complete solidarity and sympathy with the families who lost their dear ones in the “vortex of violence that has been unleashed to terrorise people to silence, unable to raise their voice for their rights”.

It demanded complete withdrawal of forces from civilian spaces with immediate effect. “What is the function of armed forces in the civilian space other than keeping tabs on people, to control their life and death,” the KCSDS statement asked.
