Chairman Hurriyat Conference(M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while describing the closure of Pathribal fake encounter case as, “murder of justice by the sword of AFSPA” Friday stated  that the Army’s decision has once again proved our stand that such type of inquiry commissions and court martial’s are created to buy time and to protect the culprits.

In a statement to KNS, Mirwaiz said till Army and government forces enjoys protection under black laws like AFSPA, Pathribal type of incidents cannot be stopped from happening.

Hurriyat (M) Chairman further statedthat acts of killing innocent people in cold blood was being carried out in a systematic manner and the announced probes in such incidents have not only always proved to be an eyewash but have actually been used to protect the killers from the clutches of justice.

“Army’s decision which protect the Pathribal fake encounter accused army personnel should be an eye-opener for the United Nations Human Rights Council, International Human Rights Organizations and for the Civil Society and justice loving people of India as well and everybody should see how five innocent unarmed civilians, labelled as militants, were murdered in cold blood to cover up the Sikh massacre of Chatisinghpora first and thereafter how five officers of army who were indicted by the CBI, the reputed investigation agency of India, as accused in the fake encounter incident of Pathribal, were protected from punishment by using the cover of AFSPA.”

Mirwaiz said that we have time and again made our stand clear that people of Kashmir had not faith in the government established systems in providing justice to the victims of such incidents. Mirwaiz said that Pathribal and all like incidents as well incidents of custodial killings and other serious human rights violations need impartial probe.

He added that the Pathribal case decision has further strengthen our suspicion about the fate of Machil encounter case as well, in which Army has ordered a Court Martial, that its fate would also be like that of Pathribal incident and there was every likelihood that the culprits instead of facing justice may be rewarded.

Hurriyat Chairman said that the murder and killing of innocents can however, not be covered forever. The blood of the victims will keep on crying for justice.

Mirwaiz has appealed to United Nations Human Rights Council, International Human Rights Organizations, and the entire civilized world community and justice loving people to raise their voice against the atrocities committed against the freedom loving people of Kashmir and play their role to end black laws like AFSPA and PSA as well as ensure impartial probe into all incidents of gross human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir.
