SRINAGAR: Condemnations continued to pour in on Monday against the killing of teenager Farhat Ahmad Dar in Naid Khai area of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
The Syed Ali Shah Geelani-led Hurriyat Conference while condemning the youth’s killing sought an impartial probe into the incident.
The amalgam’s general secretary Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi alleged that Kashmiri youth were being killed under a “policy of genocide adopted by India in Kashmir” and appealed people to boycott the upcoming elections.
“National Conference, PDP, Congress and other pro-India parties are equally responsible for the genocide of our youth and the sufferings of Kashmiris. As are the people who support them,” Sumjhi said while telephonically addressing a condolence meeting at Shahgund in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
Meanwhile, the Hurriyat Conference Jammu and Kashmir (HCJK) condemned “police highhandedness in Hajin after the killing of teenager in forces firing.”
In a statement, the HCJK senior leader, Shabir Ahmad Shah, who remains under house arrest, severely condemned the highhandedness of CRPF forces in Hajam Mohalla, Hajin.
“To raid and sabotage the properties of locals by forces is totally uncalled for,” Shah said, adding “The only crime of these people is that they had expressed their resentment and protested against the brutal killing of innocent student.
“The so-called democratic government is using teargas shelling, lathi charge and other kinds of forces against even those lamenting over the death of a youth,” Shah said.
Shah said that “after the killing of Tahir Ahmad Sofi of Baramulla, the so-called chief minister, Omar Abdullah while shedding crocodile tears had expressed helplessness that he can’t act against the forces.”
“Then why is government reluctant to book the police personnel involved in the killing,” Shah said, adding “The government is once again trying to shield the culprits by ordering so-called inquiry.”
He also expressed resentment over the imposition of curfew in various areas of north, south and central Kashmir and “use of force against the civilians.”
Terming ruling National Conference as the “root of all miseries and slavery of Kashmiri nation,” Shah said “it is amazing that despite the changing world discourse on Kashmir issue, the ruling party is “still involved in making coalition with Congress.”
Shah also appealed people to “completely boycott all the elections of this anti-people government who are hell bent upon killing the youth of Kashmir.”
“I hope the people of Kashmir will completely boycott the upcoming elections with full zeal,” Shah added.
Expressing his grief and anguish over the killing of Farhat, Mahaz-e-Azadi patron, Mohammad Azam Inqilabi Monday said that “Naidkhai tragic episode has once again testified that the 3Q and 3H sword of Delhi imperialists has become totally uncontrolled.”
“Delhi liege lords, who symbolize and typify Chanakiyan and Machiavellian politics of dissemblance and deceit, are hell-bent on enslaving Kashmiris through all the repressive and coercive modes of imperialist assertion,” Inquilabi said, according to a statement issued by the MeA spokesman.
“Basically Delhi rulers are living on the misery of Kashmiris and that is why they relish the barbarian role of Indian security personnel in Kashmir when they go berserk and create horror and terror through acts of carnage and mayhem,” he added.
