Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) on Thursday termed the state police chief SP Vaid’s statement as “an apparent threat against unarmed civilians”. “The statement is irresponsible and illustrates their ill will and obviously proves their sponsored terrorism against peaceful civilians”, Hurriyat said in a statement.
Since last 28 years, the pro-freedom activists, families and their relatives are prime target of government forces but the DG’s official statement proved that in a police state no rule of law exists.
Hurriyat said that it is unjustified to involve families of confronting forces and blamed government forces for the brutalities against families of pro-freedom activists and said it is sheer highhandedness that for no reason they are making innocents as their soft target.
“This is very unfortunate and disgusting that government forces while resorting to lawlessness raid and arrest the relatives of these activists. Hurriyat (G) said that during this the government forces ransack their properties and there are sufficient instances when many of those arrested were even assassinated.
Hurriyat spokesman while reminding DG police about the killing of brother of Burhan Wani and asked to explain why he was killed and what was his crime? Even political activists were made target by the government forces and their relatives and families were subjected to vengeance, said Hurriyat.
