Samba Offense: ‘Extremist Elements in Jammu Given a Free Hand to Harass Muslims’



While condemning the razing to ground of residential abodes belonging to the Gujjar community by the district administration in Saroor, Samba and the killing of a person Muhammad Yaqoob, Hurriyat Conference (m) Wednesday said the harassment of the community by the government and the authorities had been going on for quite some time now.

Stressing that the extremist elements in Jammu were being given a free hand to harass the members of a particular community, the Hurriyat (m) spokesperson said demolishing the houses of Gujjar community members without providing alternative accommodation to them reflects the policy of apathy of the authorities towards this community.

Meanwhile condemning the authorities for not handing over the bodies of three slain youth who were “martyred” in a gun battle with government forces in Sempora Pampore to the locals for carrying their last rites, Hurriyat Conference (m) said this was against all norms of humanity and morals values.

Paying glowing tributes to the “martyred” youth, the APHC said the people of Kashmir have been, for the past several decades, giving enormous sacrifices for the cause of freedom and “it was the need of the hour that the leadership of India shun its policy of repression and suppression in Kashmir and take meaningful steps for the resolution of Kashmir issue”.

The Hurriyat (m) has termed the use of excessive force by the government forces and Police on unarmed protesters in Pampore, imposition of curfew in the area and arrests of scores of youth in Tral as completely “undemocratic” and “dictatorial”.
