Civilian killings: Stop them or we will announce agitation, says Joint Hurriyat

Joint 4

Srinagar, Jun 30: Strongly denouncing the killing of 15-year old student Faizan Ahmed son of Dr Abdul Gabi Khan of Ladhoo, Pampore in forces firing on Friday and inflicting injuries to scores of people at Pulwama, Joint Hurriyat comprising Syed Ali Geelani Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik Saturday said that since the imposition of Governors rule in the State, an “all-out war has been declared against the people and now minor boys are being killed, which reflects the government’s policy of ultimate repression”.
In a joint statement issued here, the leadership said the recent report of United Nations Human Rights council has already taken a lid off the gory chapter of human rights violations and the report stands as an eye opener for the rest of the world as how the rights of peace loving people of Kashmir are trampled.
The Joint Hurriyat also staged a protest march against the brutal killing of little Faizan at Nowhatta. The protesters carrying placards were shouting slogans against the killing of minor Faizan Khan and nocturnal raids in South Kashmir villages and the killing spree in Kashmir stating that repression can’t break the resolve of people of Kashmir.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion, JKLF chief Malik said Faizan was shot dead and was declared brought dead by his father who is a doctor.
“This is the situation in Kashmir. South Kashmir has been turned into a military garrison where searches, killings are routine,” said Malik.
He said if innocent killings don’t stop, Joint Hurriyat will be bound to announce people’s agitation.
“Scores of prisoners have been framed under frivolous cases by NIA and ED and lodged in various jails without any justification and trial. Malik urged the international community to take serious note of the war crimes being committed by government forces,” he said.
