SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference Jammu and Kashmir leader, Shabir Ahmad Shah Tuesday expressed surprise over, what he said, double standard adopted by India’s judicial system.’
“The cases of Shaheed Muhammad Afzal Guru and Devandar Singh Bhullar were similar but Indian Supreme Court’s latest verdict exposed even its judicial system,” Shah said in a statement.
“Though we consider both Guru and Bhullar innocent, but the double approach Indian judicial system adopted has exposed them fully as they hanged a Kashmiri Muslim to satisfy the collective conscience of its nation and commuted the death sentence of Bhullar, though both the cases were similar,” Shah said, adding “Shaheed Afzal was not even allowed to meet his loved ones.”
Expressing resentment over the anti-Kashmiri approach adopted by India, Shah appealed people to “completely boycott the upcoming elections.”
“We are running a political movement against India’s forcible occupation, so we have to completely boycott the elections at any cost to achieve the freedom from Indian occupation,” he added.
