Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday said that the graph of human rights violations has increased manifold, since the PDP-BJP government took over.
In a statement, a spokesman of Hurriyat (G) said that the first six months of the Mufti Sayeed led government has proved very bad for the people.
“This period has shown an increase of 50% in the incidents of crackdown, search operations, frisking, arrests and cruelties,” the spokesman said.
The spokesman cautioned that if the process of “barbarism and inhuman treatment” like arrest spree in Khudwani, Kulgam by police and injuring of youth in pellet firing continue continued, there will be a strong reaction against the state and the people would be forced to come on the roads.
“While expressing its deep concern and anguish over the severe pellet injury in the eye of a youth and face injuries to the dozens of other youths, Hurriyat Conference said that the pellet has been declared as a lethal weapon and its use has been accepted as the grave violation of the human rights and the international laws. It is openly and widely being used in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir and its use has left hundreds of youths disabled for their entire life,” the spokesman said.
Hurriyat Conference(G) appealed the international and local human rights organizations to take serious notice of the free use of the pellet guns against the common people in the Kashmir and use their influence in stopping the use of this deadly weapon.
The spokesman said that since the formation of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed government in alliance with BJP, the “graph of the barbarism and atrocities have increased to an alarming level and the police, SOG and army have created an atmosphere of fear and terror everywhere in the valley.”
“Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and his daughter Mehbooba Mufti are silent over this grave situation as if nothing is happening and everything is alright,” the spokesman said.
The spokesman demanded immediate release of the citizens of Kakpora Pulwama Abdul Rasheed Sofi, Showkat Ahmad Dar, Riyaz Ahmad Dar and Bilal Ahmad Kakpora.
