Victims of state oppression: Mirwaiz
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq said that women and children are the most affected and worst sufferers in conflict areas across the world. He said while the Kashmir dispute has consumed thousands of innocent lives the impact it has had on the women of the disputed territory has been enormously huge. As widows, half-widows, mothers, orphaned daughters and sisters, the pain and suffering the womenfolk bear is immense.
Mirwaiz said our women also had to undergo the assault and indignity of rape and molestation as a consequence of occupation ‘at the hands of our oppressors’.
