SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) chief, Syeda Aasiya Andrabi, on Tuesday said the blood of Kashmiris is “worthless in the eyes of Indian subjugators” and appealed the people to “protest against the state’s murder of justice and honour”.
In a statement issued here, Aasiya said following the killings in Handwara and Kupwara “normal course of justice was that army men who fired upon the people are booked and arrested but the concerned DC says they are not sure who had fired”. “This proves the worth of Kashmiri blood in the eyes of Indian subjugators. If we still hold any soft corner for these people, then it is our bad luck,” she said.
She condemned the arrest of two youth and suspending of government employees in Handwara saying, “This is the worst manifestation of our slavery.”
“On one hand, a young girl is molested and those who raised voice against it are fired upon. Instead of taking action against the culprits, the so-called administration arrested two of our youth and suspended the services of employees. This tantamount to adding salt to our injuries,” she said.
Aasiya said Kashmiris need to protest against this “murder of justice and honour” as “these arrests have been made on the statement given by a girl under arrest and pressure. People should understand this situation and rise up against this”.
“Whenever a country annexes any territory, its first and foremost task is to destroy the honour and self-esteem of the subjects so as to make them realise that they hold no right in front of their master. The freedom loving people of Kashmir can be weak but not shameless. If we fail to protest against it, then the slavery would be our fate,” she said.
