- SRINAGAR: Terming the Supreme Court (SC) directions over the Shopian killings as ‘unjustified’, the United Jihad Council (UJC) on Monday said that halting the action against the army major is tantamount to a ‘murder of justice’.
In a statement to a local news agency, the UJC spokesman, Syed Sadaqat Hussain, quoted its chief Syed Salahuddin as having termed the SC direction over the Shopian killings as ‘unjustified’.
“The Indian leadership and forces are already involved in the killings of Kashmiris, and now halting the investigations against the killings has indicated that its judiciary is also taking the side of those committing atrocities,” Salahuddin said.
The Hizbul Mujahideen chief described the killing of Saima Wani, sister of a slain Shopian militant, as “painful” saying, “India can’t suppress the freedom struggle by killing innocent boys and girls.”
“The Indian forces have got frustrated by the successful activities of militants and have come up with the policy of killing innocent boys and girls. History stands testimony to the fact that such tactics have caused damage to the occupational forces,” he added.
Salahuddin appealed to the world community to break its silence over the Kashmir issue and to impress upon the Indian forces to stop human rights violations in Kashmir.
