SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Wednesday termed Indian armed forces as “force of cowards”, saying instead of fighting the “brave mujahideen” directly, they are using drones to drop bombs on houses where from militants fight them.
DeM secretary general Nahida Nasreen in a statement said the “coward” army pumps bullets on innocent civilians but is afraid to fight the militants.
She appealed to UN, OIC, and human rights organisations including HRW to help in resolving the Kashmir issue.
“World is well aware of the fact that till Kashmir issue is not resolved; peace in the subcontinent is a distant dream. We appeal the organisation(s) to impress upon India to resolve the issue for the lasting peace in the region and to stop bloodshed of civilians in the valley,” she said.
Meanwhile, a party spokesperson in a statement said the condition of DeM incarcerated chairperson Syeda Aasiya Andrabi and her personal secretary Sofi Fehmeeda is deteriorating in Jammu jail.
“Yesterday, the family members of the two visited them in Jammu jail and were shocked to see their condition. They are not being provided medical aid. The condition (of) the cell they are kept in is stinking (and) they are not provided any medicine.”
“It has led to worsening condition of their health. Baji (Andrabi) has suffered rashes in her body due to rising temperatures in Jammu, while Fehmeeda has developed allergy.”
The spokesperson said despite repeatedly trying through court to shift them to a Srinagar jail, the government is “deliberately” keeping them in Jammu jail. “It is due to personal dictates of Mehbooba Mufti that Aasiya Andrabi is not shifted to a Kashmir jail.”
