Forces turned into ‘blood sucking vampires’ for Kashmiris: JRL


Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) Monday condemned the carnage by forces at Shopian, stating that Kashmir has been turned into a slaughter house where the lives of young and old, men and women and even children are not safe as forces have gone berserk and are slaughtering Kashmiris at will.

JRL comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a joint statement issued here said that “though this genocide is going on from last many decades but the way Indian soldiers at the behest of their political masters have expedited this killing spree from last some months has turned this utterly horrible.”

They said that from north to south Kashmir attacks on Kashmiri women have also increased and recently two women from Handwara and Shopian were gunned down by forces while as many including two innocent girls Saima and Sumera have been injured by bullets and pellets of the forces leaving them battling for their lives at hospital.

The leaders said that “Indian forces and army soldiers who have turned into blood sucking vampires for Kashmiris as they killed three innocents and injured hundreds on 25th January but this bloodshed did not satisfy their blood sucking instinct and they slaughtered two more Kashmiris on 27th January and injured many more by their direct and unprovoked firing.”

JRL said that actually this massacre and genocide by men in uniform is consequence of the immunity provided to them by pro-India Kashmiri politicians, assembly, parliament and Panchayat members and their parties who legislate and implement laws like AFSPA to shelter these criminals and crimes.

The leaders said that on one hand are the armed soldiers of India who are deployed to slaughter Kashmiris and on the other hand are these rulers and politicians who as soon as army and forces slaughter Kashmiris, come out with announcements of probes and try to divert attention of people from these crimes against humanity.

“We want to ask these shameless people that what happened to probes announced from 1990 till now. Has any criminal or killer in uniform ever been penalized till now?,” JRL said, adding that Kashmiris and even international community has now understood the reality behind these probes and these probe announcements carry no value now.

JRL said that “rulers and the local government have expedited massacring Kashmiris to end Kashmiri resistance against illegal occupation but these naïve people should know that harsh measures and military might never succeed in defeating people’s revolutions.”

They said that Kashmiris have been facing Indian brazenness from last many decades and despite oppression this resistance will continue till the achievement of the sacred goal.

Meanwhile, JRL leaders and activists staged protest sit-in against the Shopian killings in Srinagar.

“Along with people from other walks of life JRL leaders marched towards Lal Chowk but police stopped their mach near press enclave after which this protest rally turned into a sit-in which was addressed by JRL leaders Showkat Ahmad Bakhshi, Muhammad Rafiq Shah Owaisee and Advocate Yasir Dalal,” the statement added.
