Asiya urges people to offer funeral prayers in absentia today

Srinagar: Chairperson Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) Asiya Andrabi has condemned the government for preventing funeral prayers in absentia of the three militants who died in Pampore gunfight this week.
In a statement issued here, Asiya said that the forceful prevention depicts the frustration of India and its local “stooges”.
“Every nook and corner of Pampore was besieged and men and women were arrested to prevent people from gathering for the funeral. The Indian administration was afraid of the funeral of these (militants) who taught the country’s army a tough lesson,” she said.
She also urged United Nations and OIC to take strong notice of the police and military “atrocities” in Jammu and Kashmir and should come forward to solve the long pending issue. “The people here are being pressurized and are being prevented from even observing religious obligations,” she said.
