Why no media debate over Umar’s killing, asks DeM


Dukhtaran-e-Millat on Friday condemned the killing of Umar Kumhar, a resident of Pinjoora who was killed near the gunfight site in Turkawangam village of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

The spokesman said that despite the fact that Umar was killed by a “target fire” while he was in school uniform. But his killing didn’t follow any media debates.

DeM in a statement also questioned the world bodies about the two incidents and asked: “Which of the two incidents are much graver. Pelting of stones by unidentified people on school bus or killing of a teenager in school uniform by the government forces.

The spokesperson urged the resistance leadership to take up the cases of civilian killings and take them to the International Criminal Court so that the face of government forces is exposed world over.

Furthermore, the spokesperson said that since February this year the political prisoners lodged in different jails of Jammu and Kashmir are being shifted from one place to another to harass them.

She said the situation in Central jail Srinagar where the DeM chairperson Syedah Aasiya Andrabi, Secretary General Nahida Nasreen and Press Secretary Sofi Fehmeeda including two students have been lodged is no less than that of “Guantanamo Bay.”

“Although Andrabi is suffering from various ailments, she is being denied access to clean drinking water and other medical facilities,” the spokesman said, adding that Andrabi is not even allowed to buy necessary medicines from the market.

A spokesman said that the “coercion” is leading to the deteriorating health condition of Andrabi and termed it a well thought out conspiracy to kill her.

Meanwhile, a Dukhtaran delegation led by Shaista went to the residences of slain militants Sameer Tiger and Aqib Khan and paid glorious tributes to them.
