Bhaderwah, Banihal shut against killings in Valley

Jammu—In occupied Kashmir, the Muslims in Bhaderwah and Banihal areas in Jammu observed complete shutdown, today, to protest against the killing of peaceful protesters by Indian forces.
Call for the shutdown in Bhaderwah was given by Anjuman-e-Isalamia Bhaderwah in support of Kashmiri people and also to lodge protest against puppet administration for miserably failing to safeguard the human rights of common people in the Valley.
The President of Anjuman Islamia Bhadarwah, Pervaiz Ahmed Sheikh, said that they had given a call for peaceful strike to show their resentment against Indian government and its puppet authorities for killing and wounding unarmed civilians in the Valley. The common man in Kashmir is being held hostage since last over 25 days, this is the worst kind of human rights violation, we have ever seen, he said.
“We are living peacefully here at Bhaderwah and have maintained communal harmony in most trying times. But off late Bhaderwah police, particularly SHO, seems to be taking orders from RSS, which is very unfortunate and will have an adverse effect in this sensitive town,” added Anjuman-e-Isalamia President, while demanding the transfer of the SHO.
Some social workers and human rights activists also castigated the puppet authorities for the killing and wounding of unarmed Kashmiri civilians and failing on human rights front.
“As far as human rights are concerned, this is the worst, we have ever witnessed in last 25 years. How long you can mislead the people by shedding crocodile tears in public and at the same time pass orders to kill and fire pellets on innocent children and women,” said a social worker and human rights activist, Imtiaz-ul-Rehman.
Banihal town and its adjoining areas started a four day shutdown in solidarity with the people of the Kashmir Valley. Local elders have called for a shutdown for four days against the civilian killings and continued curfew in the Valley.—KMS
