Separatists on Tuesday strongly condemned the Peshawar incident wherein the Taliban stormed a military-run school in northwest Pakistan and gunned down at least 126 people, most of them children, in one of the country’s deadliest attacks in recent weeks.
Huriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani while terming the attacks barbaric, said waging war against such elements is the duty of every Muslim. Geelani told KNS that there is no need to prove that those claiming to fight for Islam and are involved in such cowardly acts are in actual the biggest enemies of Islam and Muslims.
He said that the attacks are inhuman and those involved in the incidents must be served the stern punishment.
The Huriyat (G) chairman also expressed solidarity with the families of the kids who were slaughtered during the incident.
Kashmir chief cleric and Huriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while condemning the killings of school children said that those involved in the cowardly acts cannot be the well wishers of Islam and Pakistan. He said that the act must be condemned and Islam has no space for allowing the killings of the innocent people. Mirwaiz says that he stands with the people of Pakistan at this hour of great loss and grief.
Huriyat Conference JK leader Shabir Ahmad Shah condemned the attack saying the killings are tantamount of killing the whole humanity. Shah said that the pro-freedom camp of Kashmir stands with Pakistan at this hour of great loss and expresses sympathies with the people of the country.
Shah added that such incidents must be condemned at all levels
