Jamaat terms it ‘a deep rooted conspiracy’, alleges Delhi was ‘hell bent to derail the pace of freedom struggle’
Srinagar: Expressing deep concern over the growing incidents of braid chopping, pro-freedom groups in Kashmir have reacted sharply and alleged that the government machinery was complicit in the issue.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference lead by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has demanded that the “elements behind these immoral and criminal activities should be exposed”.
Terming the incidents a “deep rooted conspiracy”, Jamaat said that “teenage girls are scared from coming out their homes” in such atmosphere. “New-Delhi is hell bent to derail the pace of freedom struggle which has gained momentum after July 2016 as people from all walks of life are contributing in it to get the freedom from occupational forces,” a statement issued by Jamaat-e-Islami said.
A spokesperson of Hurriyat said such “inhuman and degraded acts” were aimed to “create an atmosphere of fear and insecurity” among women in Kashmir.
“It is unfortunate that authorities, who are ever ready to put youth raising voice for a just cause behind the bars, have miserably failed to nab the culprits involved in braid chopping,” the spokesperson said.
