SRINAGAR: The Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) chairman Mohammed Yasin Khan has termed the continued bloodbath in valley as “genocide” of Kashmiri Muslims by government.
In a statement, Khan who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF), said, “Such death of dance cannot facilitate restoration of peace. If chief minister says that killings won’t resolve Kashmir why do killings continue to take place?”
Expressing sympathy with the bereaved families, Khan said such killings would only aggravate Kashmir crisis rather than bring any fruitful results.
“Where does it happen other than Kashmir that peaceful protesters or stone-pelters are treated with bullets. This is nothing but genocide of Kashmiri Muslims,” he said.
“The government should feel ashamed for its failure to safeguard precious human lives,” Khan said. “This all suggests a strategic genocide.”
He appealed to international community particularly the Amnesty International to put pressure on the Government of India to stop civilian killings in Kashmir.
