Naya Kashmir Getting Expensive For Kashmir, Mehbooba Says

SRINAGAR: The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has on Thursday expressed dismay and shock over the incident in which two civilians sustained bullet injuries in the leg following an altercation between locals and army while later was making a video of afternoon prayers in Handwara area of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.

Admonishing the act of security forces barging into a religious place, profiling worshippers and shooting civilians at will without any fear of justice, Mehbooba said such incidents highlight the level of unaccountability pervasive across institutions in Jammu and Kashmir.

” Government of India’s interference in religious matters by its unwarranted surveillance of a simple act of offering prayers shows that Kashmiris pay dearly for the illusion of Naya Kashmir,” she tweeted.

PDP President also told the authorities to see to it that such incidents do not take place in future and fix responsibility on the perpetrators of this shameful act.
