Calls for end to attacks on journalists, medicos
SRINAGAR: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, on Wednesday described the killing of two more youth as “cold-blooded murder”, saying the killings have proved that “the trigger happy Indian forces armed with immunity are deployed to kill humans in Kashmir”.
“Indian rulers along with their Kashmiri stooges who, on daily basis, issue statements to provide legal cover to killers are equally responsible for these massacres,” incarcerated Malik said in a statement issued here.
Chattabal, Lethpora killings
“The killing of two more Kashmiris and injuring many more has yet again exposed the fact that, Indian forces, armed with black laws and immunity from any accountability, have turned into beasts who can kill anyone, anywhere at will.” He said that killing a Kashmiri has become an “ordinary thing” for these “trigger-happy killers”, because they fear no accountability or facing justice. Time and again, the “so-called Kashmiri rulers” led by chief minister have been justifying the killings by saying that the protesters attacked camps and police stations.
“Although killings of many women, children and elderly, and direct pellet firing on eyes and heads was enough to prove them liars, but today the brutal murder of two more innocents, among whom Reyaz Ahmad of Chatabal was on duty during night and was killed by a pellet gun and other was fired upon straight at Lethpora, is exposing the lies of these hypocritical politicians who for the lust of power have stooped to new lows of shame and callousness,” he said.
“The so-called chief minister should answer which camp or police station did these two people attack?”
Malik said that the “freedom struggles are long battles” between truth and falsehood and during these times “we have to look into our ranks and beware of those who are indulging in defaming our sacred movement by attacking common people”.
“The reports of attacks on ambulances, doctors, medical staff, and journalists and on those who are forced to come out of their houses are worrying, and freedom lovers and those resisting the might of India will have to clean the ranks of resistance from those who through their anti-people and anti-human acts want to defame resistance movement,” he added.
