Srinagar June 25: Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik while condemning the ongoing killings of Kashmiris by forces, said “blood of innocent humans is being spilled ruthlessly in Kashmir and this is the responsibility of United Nations to intervene and stop this bloodshed. During last ten days about two dozen Kashmiris have fallen to the bullets of trigger happy Indians who at the behest of their political masters are engaged in this genocide.”

According to a statement, it is pertinent to mention that police in the wee hours of morning today raided the residence of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and arrested him. He was immediately shifted to police station Kothibagh. JKLF spokesman has strongly condemned this arrest.

While condemning the ongoing slaughter of Kashmiris by trigger happy Indian forces, JKLF incarcerated chairman in his message from incarceration has said that though from last three years blood of innocent Kashmiris is being spilled mercilessly but form last ten days this blood bath has been speeded-up alarmingly and dozens of innocent Kashmiris have fallen to the bullets of Indian occupation during these days.

 

Yesterday, a civilian Yawar Ahmad was fired upon directly and killed brutally while as two others including Shakoor Ahmad Dar from Kulgam embraced martyrdom at the hands of Indian trigger happy forces. Only two days back in similar manner Indian colonial forces massacred five Kashmiris at Sirigufwara and injured dozens among whom one Shahid Nazir Hajam succumbed to his injuries yesterday. Also on the last day of Ramazan and on Eid day, three unarmed Kashmiris were brutally killed by men in uniform and even today forces have opened fire at Nadihal Faridabad injuring one Ubaid Manzoor Lone seriously.

JKLF chairman said that Indian army, forces, SOG and police have speeded-up this blood bath, apparently at the behest of their political masters who want to take advantage in upcoming elections by killing more and more Kashmiris. What can be more atrocious than playing politics on human blood and tragedy and only fascists following the foot-steps of Hitler and Mussolini can do this horrible job, asserted JKLF chairman.

He said from last day of Ramazan, a new phase of terror and oppression was launched by India in the name of disciplining common people. Crackdowns in the name of CASO are being launched especially in south Kashmir during which people without the discrimination of age and gender are beaten, tortured, vandalized and intimidated by Indian colonial forces. All this is naked terrorism being perpetuated by the so-called biggest democracy and world including the UN needs to look into this and halt this aggression, asserted Yasin Malik.

Asking international community to intervene and stop Indian aggression on Kashmiris, JKLF chairman said that recently a heartening report was released by UN human rights commission regarding human rights abuses in Jammu Kashmir. Today United Nations Humans rights council is in session at Gevena and suppressed Kashmiris are eagerly looking towards it. We want to urge UN human rights council to have a human heart and sympathetic look towards oppressed Kashmiris and intervene to stop ongoing genocide of Kashmiris by Indian forces.

Srinagar, Mar 22: The authorities put under house arrest the Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday and barred the congregational prayers at the historic Jamia Masjid in here.
Reports said that the authorities placed restrictions at several parts of Old City including Nowhatta where authorities did not allow people to offer the Friday prayers.
An official said restrictions were imposed in view of call for protests issued by the Joint Hurriyat Leadership comprising of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik.
Joint Hurriyat had called for peaceful protests after the prayers against the “custodial death” of Awantipora school teacher Rizwan Assad Pandith.
Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who addresses the faithful at the mosque every Friday was put under house arrest. He termed the disallowing of Friday prayers as “religious assault”.
“While repression, killings and arbitrary arrests continue unabated, for the 3rd time this month #JamaMasjid put under lockdown and Friday prayers disallowed. Condemn the authorities for this religious assault,” Mirwaiz wrote on Twitter. This was on the third time in this month that authorities barred the Friday prayers at the Jamia Masjid.

Srinagar, Mar 22: Islamic University Faculty Association (IUFA) Friday condemned the alleged custodial killing of a teacher Rizwan Assad Pandith and has termed it outrageous and a tremendous loss to education while demanding immediate justice for him.
In a statement, the IUFA said Pandith worked as a guest faculty in the Polytechnic College, Islamic University of Science and Technology in 2018.
“He was not just a competent academician, but a thorough gentleman as well. His untimely death is a huge loss to education in South Kashmir where he was heading a school and a coaching center as well,” the statement of the Association said.
The association has demanded that the perpetrators of such crimes be brought to justice at an earliest as there is no place for such horrific crimes in civilized and responsible societies.
The Association has once again expressed dismay and concern over the delay in the dispensation of justice in the custodial killing of another teacher Shabir Ahmad Mango, a college lecturer by Army personnel on August 17, 2016. “Such gory cases of the custodial killings of teachers have caused an immense damage to the intellectual capital of the education sector in the state and we again call for justice to Mango also,” the statement read.
Meanwhile, Kashmir University Teachers Association (KUTA) too has strongly condemned the killing and demanded immediate dispensation of justice. “Such treatment to the ‘nation builders’ on sustained basis does not augur well for the peace and stability in the state,” reiterated the KUTA spokesperson.
The two associations have also called for an immediate end to the continued human rights violations in Kashmir.

MPs of 2014 have been mute spectators in Parl: Altaf Bukhari

Srinagar, Mar 22: Terming the upcoming parliament and assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir as one of the crucial elections, former Finance Minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Friday said these elections would likely pose a serious challenge for the special status of the State and to its inclusive political culture.
Addressing a workers’ convention at his private office here, Bukhari emphasized on the state’s electorate to compare and elect their candidates on promises made versus performance basis.
The former minister observed that people of the state particularly that of the Kashmir valley, have not forgotten that they were asked for votes in lieu of a ‘mandate for a mission’.
“People have not even forgotten being promised to ‘make the parliament a forum for representing the Kashmir issue at the national level’. But what they did in the Parliament later?” Bukhari asked, adding, “Analyze their attendance and performance on internet and you will witness their dismal track record of attending and intervening in the House. They have simply been mute spectators in the Parliament and wasted the mandate of people.”
The former finance minister remarked that people need to elect their representatives after proper application of mind and wisdom. “While we need to show a united face and defeat the nefarious designs of some divisive political forces, at the same time we need to strengthen the hands of the leadership that has the courage to call a spade a spade.”
Bukhari opined that the electorate of Jammu and Kashmir especially in the valley must decide whether they want to go with the forces who berated and bartered their mandate for their petty political gains or the forces who can safeguard their interests and the special identity of the State.
He said a drastic electoral division or fragmented vote will not be in the interests of people as the same can give a hegemonic control over all state institutions, as well as the public discourse in the hands of forces who are inimical to the identity of this state.
The former minister also stressed on a need for creating a conducive and peaceful atmosphere for holding elections saying that political activities cannot fetch a desired change in an atmosphere of mass arrests, raids, civilian harassment and custodial killings.
“Although almost all the mainstream political parties have condemned the recent custodial killing of the school teacher but mere words cannot heal the wounds of that family. The probe in this incident needs to be conducted in a transparent and time bound manner so that the culprits are booked as per law,” Bukhari reiterated his demand.
