In occupied Kashmir, Working President of Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference (JKMC), Jahangir Ghani Butt, has strongly condemned the unrelenting incidents of braid-cutting of women in the territory and described it as the new method of state terrorism.
Jahangir Ghani Butt in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the agents of Indian secret agencies were using chemicals to make women unconscious and then forcibly cut their braids. He said these incidents are growing and spreading across the Valley creating a sense of insecurity and fear among the people.
He said Kashmir dispute is a burning issue which requires urgent international attention. He added that time had come when all the stakeholders should sit together and find ways to settle the dispute, once and for all. He also condemned the killing of three youth by Indian troops in Pulwama district, today.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of Karwani Islami International, Maulana Hami, addressing a gathering at Qamarwari in Srinagar condemned the braid-chopping incidents taking place across the Valley.
“The way braid-chopping incidents are increasing, they are affecting the education, trade and daily life in Kashmir. It has become clear that braid-chopping is a well-planned conspiracy to frighten people,” he added.—KMS
