SRINAGAR: Huriyat Conference (G) while reacting to the statement of DG police, SP Vaid, said it is an apparent threat against unarmed civilians.
Terming the statement irresponsible, a spokesperson of Hurriyat said that it illustrates their “ill will” & proves their “sponsored terrorism” against peaceful civilians.
“Since last 28 years, the pro-freedom activists, families and their relatives are prime target for government forces. However, today official statement of DG proved that in a police state no rule of law exists & maintained that a high-ranking authority confirmed our claim.”
The spokesperson according to a statement issued here said that it is unjustified to involve families of confronting forces & blamed government forces for the brutalities against families of pro-freedom activists and said it is sheer highhandedness that for no reason they are making innocents as their soft target.
“This is very unfortunate and disgusting that government forces while resorting to lawlessness raid and arrest the relatives of these activists.”
The statement said that during this the government forces ransack their properties and there are sufficient instances when many of those arrested were even assassinated.
Reminding DG police about the killing of brother of Burhan Wani and asked to explain why he was killed and what was his crime? Can any sane person justify this killing, he questioned and said that there are many more such gory instances on record about innocents, falling to bullets.
“Even political activists were made target by government forces and their relatives and families were subjected to vengeance,” said the spokesperson.
