In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have strongly condemned the killing of two teachers, Satinder Kour and Deepak Chand, chemist Makhan Lal Bindroo and other Kashmiris by unknown men backed by Indian forces and their secret agencies in the territory.
Senior APHC leader and the President of Jammu and Kashmir Anjuman Sharie Shian, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, in a statement issued in Srinagar strongly condemned the killing of the two teachers.
He expressed deep concern over the rising incidents of civilian killings in Kashmir Valley. He said that such incidents were aimed at harming the traditional brotherhood and communal harmony in the territory.
Grand Mufti of IIOJK, Mufti Nasirul Islam, Jammu and Kashmir Political Resistance General Secretary Dr Mus’ab, Jammu and Kashmir Social and Justice League leader Fatima Jan, the Jammu and Kashmir National Front spokesman and other leaders and organisations in their statements in Srinagar urged the United Nations and Amnesty International to probe the killings in Kashmir.
The statements said that such acts were going against Kashmiris’ struggle for freedom and added that Indian army, police and their secret agencies were behind these killings to defame the ongoing Kashmir freedom struggle and Pakistan, which has always supported their genuine struggle for freedom at all local and international forums. The leaders and organizations expressed solidarity with the bereaved families.
Meanwhile, National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar Abdullah in a statement while commenting on the killing of two teachers said that words of condemnation are not enough for this inhuman act of terror.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti said New Delhi’s claims of building a ‘Naya Kashmir’ have actually turned it into a hellhole.
She said Modi government’s sole interest is to use Kashmir as a milch cow for its electoral interests, she wrote on Twitter.
On the other hand, political experts who have a close watch on developments in occupied Jammu and Kashmir are also of the view that the latest surge in civilian killings, particularly of those belonging to minority community in the Kashmir valley is the artifact of Indian army and its agencies to malign the Kashmiri Hurriyat leadership and Pakistan, internationally.—KMS
