Hurriyat (M) Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday termed the setting up of an army camp in Redwani area of Kulgam as a matter of concern.
The spokesman said that setting up camps within the radius of just three kilometers is a ploy to instill fear among the residents of south Kashmir. The Hurriyat said because of the new camp, people living in 2000 houses, will have to live in a constant fear every day and night and that the camp should be immediately removed or else people would be left with the no option other than to migrate.
The Hurriyat condemned the nocturnal raids in Tral and Hajin areas followed by “arrests of innocent youth and harassment” of the entire population terming it completely unjustified.
Mirwaiz also expressed his profound sorrow over the deadly Tsunami in Indonesia that left hundreds dead and property worth billions damaged.
Mirwaiz said that people of Kashmir, who bore the brunt of a deadly quake in 2005, can understand the pain and sufferings of people of Indonesia as being the suffers from nature’s fury themselves.
