Srinagar: Accusing the government of waging a wicked war against the majority community of the state, Kashmir Economic Alliance chairman Muhammad Yasin Khan said Muslims of Kashmir and Chenab Valleys were being arrested as a part of a deep rooted conspiracy.
Khan, who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation, said the state government is literally “celebrating” arrest of Muslim youth as official bulletins counting detentions have become a regular feature of media reports.
“Instead of feeling ashamed for having unleashed a reign of terror and subjecting the people of Kashmir to worst-ever humanitarian crises, the government shamelessly glorifies everyday how many youth have been arrested,” Khan said adding putting over 6000 innocent people behind the bars is nothing but revenge.
“While youth are being subjected to harassment, in the Chenab Valley Masjid Imams are also being targeted,” Khan said adding the “PDP led state government is executing Nagpur agenda”.
Terming the arrest of innocent youth as conspiracy of Hindutva agenda, Khan appealed the international community including Organization of Islamic Countries, the United Nations and the SAARC to take note of the large-scale rights abuse in Kashmir.
“The arrest spree is new form of ethnic cleansing and people are being pushed to the wall,” Khan said.
