Srinagar: Demanding an impartial investigation into the incidents of killing at point blank range by government forces and the humiliating episode of making youth as human shield, as exposed through some videos on social media, the Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani said that these events though practiced by government forces for the last 27 years were neither investigated nor any personnel brought to book.
Condemning the detention of five youth, a Hurriyat spokesman said, that while authorities initiated an enquiry against those accused of humiliation of CRPF personnel, no action was taken against those involved in these coldhearted actions against civilians.
“State police is very prompt and active and take offensive actions against innocent Kashmiri but feel helpless while dealing with Indian forces and fail to save life and dignity of common civilians,” said Hurriyat.
Criticizing Indian media for its “biased” approach, spokesman Ayaz Akbar said that they don’t follow any standard.
Referring to the statement of Rajnath Singh, spokesman said that it was quite strange that though he reacted to the alleged humiliation of forces but remained tightlipped about inhuman act of its forces.
“There is nothing offensive or annoying in the said video clip, rather it illustrates our dignified approach and respect for human values. The video is a live proof that youth are asking their fellow men to let these forces go unhurt,” he said.
Taking a dig at Omer Abdullah, spokesman said that his activities are confined to tweets and as soon he gets into power corridors, he will also go the same way as Mehbooba Mufti and will leave no stone unturned to seek blessings from Rajnath.
