Army Chief’s drone attacks in Kashmir a provocative remark: Joint Hurriyat

Srinagar, Nov 30: Joint Hurriyat Leader, Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik Friday expressed grave concern our the recent statement of Army chief Bipin Rawat about using drone attacks in Kashmir.

The leaders, in a statement, said that “such an irresponsible, unfortunate and provocative statement from the highest military leadership has threatened a small population of peace loving citizens to the maximum.”

“Army chief’s statement is more than accepting their humiliating defeat at every front, which has unnerved them to the extent of frustration and insanity leading to murmuring this incoherent vocabulary of drones,” they said.

Leadership appealed to international community, especially United Nations to take a serious note of the “threatening statement of warmongers”.

“They need to be curtailed and cut to their size otherwise criminal silence by world bodies will encourage these insane generals to put their words to action, which will have catastrophic ramifications not only in this subcontinent but globally as well,” they said.
