Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front on Thursday said that “trigger happy occupational forces are deployed only to kill Kashmiris at will”, and pro-India politicians of Jammu Kashmir are deployed to “shield these crimes and legalise such killings.”
In a statement, JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal, while condemning the unprovoked firing in Shopian by forces killing an innocent youth and injuring many others, said, “Shopian killings are a glaring example of colonial callousness of India.”
A JKLF delegation comprising of district president Javaid Ahmad Bhat and Tariq Ahmad reached Odoo, Ganawpora and Kalampora and participated in the funeral prayers of the “martyred” youth. Delegation met with the bereaved families – Shakir Ahmad Mir, Sameer Ahmad Wani and Firdous Ahmad and expressed solidarity with them.
While condemning the brutal killing of innocent youth Shakir Ahmad Mir and injuring hundreds including two girls Sumi Jan and Sabreena, who are still critical, Kalwal said that killers and their abettors will surely face justice one day as according to the law of retribution. “Every tyrant and oppressor has to answer for his crimes against humans and humanity,” he said.
JKLF zonal president also condemned the prolonged incarceration of their chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik and Ghulam Muhammad Dar, who are languishing at central jail Srinagar from 19 January. He also condemned the police raid at the residence of JKLF leader Zahoor Ahmad Butt and termed it as worst “police terrorism.”
