Condemning the killing of a minor girl Kaneeza and injuring a minor boy Faisal at Hyhama Kupwara, chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has termed the incident as yet another example of state oppression and forces’ atrocities committed on the people of Kashmir.
Mirwaiz in Hurriyat (M) statement said: “The killing of the minor girl in the incident indicates how the forces enjoy the impunity to kill Kashmiris under the grab of combating insurgents. Showering bullets on unarmed innocent minors and atrocities on civilian population is totally against the internationally accepted laws. Such aggressive behavior of forces against the people of Kashmir could have extremely dangerous consequences.”
Mirwaiz in his statement appealed the International Human Rights Organizations and “influential nations” around the globe “to take serious notice of the atrocities being committed on the people of Kashmir and play their role to stop the bloodshed”.—Agencies
