Says attempt to terrorise people
Srinagar: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir has expressed deep resentment and anguish over what it called “unjustified firing” on the house of Mohammad Maqbool Sheikh in Mantrigam village of Bandipora during night hours.
Terming it a deliberate attempt to “terrorise the innocent people of Kashmir” a Jama’at statement said, “Had these armed forces not the support of AFSPA giving them unbridled power to harass and intimidate anybody without assigning any reason, such incidents would never have taken place. It’s because of these black laws being in force that the innocent Kashmiri people are subjected to worst type of inhuman treatment at the hands of these unruly armed forces.”
The Jama’at appealed the international community to “come forward and see the plight of the innocent people here at the hands of the armed forces having been licensed to commit atrocities and human rights violations”.
Meanwhile Jama’at also expressed concern over the health of Hurriyat pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Geelani who is undergoing treatment at SKIMS, Soura. It also condemned the authorities for putting him under constant house detention and debarring him even from attending his religious duties.
