Hurriyat Conference (g) Chairperson, Syed Ali Geelani, Monday strongly condemned the shifting of JKLF chief Mohammad Yasin Malik to Central jail Srinagar and termed it “as the worst form of state terrorism”.
“The oppressive tactics has neither worried the Kashmiri pro-freedom leadership in the past and nor will this policy deter us in the future also and we will continue to pursue the sacred cause of Kashmir until it will get liberated from the cruel clutches of India,” Geelani said.
On the directions of Syed Ali Geelani a high level delegation of Hurriyat Conference (g) led by Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar today visited Shopian and participated in the function which was called in the memory of Asiya and Neloofar there, a statement issued by the amalgam said this evening.
While demanding the reopening of the double murder and rape case of Asiya and Neloofar and public execution of the involved personals, Hurriyat leaders said, “there were enough evidences available to prove the big hand of the Indian agencies in this unfortunate incident but all those evidences and proofs were eliminated under a well thought out plan. The then Omar Abdullah government played an important role in shielding the real culprits and hushing up the case by misusing the government machinery.”
While addressing the people on the occasion, the Hurriyat leaders paid rich and glorious tributes to the two daughters of Kashmir Asiya and Neloofar and said, “after the Kunan-Poshpora, the Shopian incident is a very serious and shameful episode in the resistance history of Kashmir which has shaken the conscious of the whole Kashmiri Nation. This incident can no way be neglected or ignored and until an impartial investigation is conducted in this case and the real culprits are brought to justice, we will not remain silent and we will continue to raise our concerns.”
“The gang rape is being used as a war weapon by the Indian occupational forces in Jammu & Kashmir and from last 26 years about 7 thousand Kashmiri women have been either raped or molested by these forces. The black laws like AFSPA and Disturbed Area Act (DAA) are providing a protective shield to the Indian troops here and due to which no rape accused personal has been so far prosecuted or punished. The government forces are free to do whatever they want and no one will question them for that even judiciary is helpless before them,” they said.
Demanding impartial investigation by some independent agency into all the gang rape incidents of Jammu & Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders said, “United Nations War Crime Tribunal should hold accountable all the Indian army personnel for the gang rapes and other war crimes in Jammu & Kashmir like they did in the case of Bosnia war crimes.” (KNS)
