SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) chief, Syeda Aasiya Andrabi, on Monday said the “right-minded people should come forward with suggestions to form a long-term strategy to tackle the human rights violations taking place in Kashmir”.
In a statement issued here, Aasiya said the present situation of Kashmir “demands that a long term strategy be formed to protect the sacrifices of our youth without compromising the basic goal of freedom from India”.
“The time is ripe because the world attention is towards Kashmir and the recent OIC resolution is also very encouraging. Our leadership should also look at developing a proactive long-term strategy to represent the aspirations of the people,” she said.
Commenting on the Kupwara and Handwara aftermath situation, the DeM said after the incident, an “emergency was enforced across the valley”. “But these tactics have failed in the past and will fail in future also,” she said.
Terming the Mehbooba Mufti-led government as “shameless”, Aasiya said, “Instead of feeling people’s pain, this government requested more troops from India as if the already 10 lakh forces were not enough to kill Kashmiris.”
“This chief minister got a befitting reply as after appealing youth for peace, protests were held across the valley on Monday. This proved that nobody trusts her crocodile tears,” Andrabi said.
