SRINAGAR: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) on Saturday said the Muslims living in Jammu will be never left alone at the mercy of “fascists and goons”.
It said anyone aiming to repeat the 1947 massacre should remember that the entire valley will rise against any such ill move and Kashmiri Muslims will spill their blood to save their Jammu brethren at any cost.
In a statement, the JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik warned if rulers don’t take immediate steps to eradicate the “fascist behaviour” against Jammu Muslims, Kashmiri Muslims under the banner of pro-freedom leadership will launch a full-fledged agitation and no stone will be left unturned to ensure safety of Jammu Muslims.
The JRL statement comes in the backdrop of a Hindu right-wing group taking out a protest in Jammu on Friday in support of the two accused arrested in the rape and murder case of eight-year-old girl in Kathua.
“A rally by some Hindu chauvinists led by BJP assembly member in support of a rapist and murderer of an innocent eight-year-old girl in Jammu, that too holding Indian tricolour and with full police protection is a glaring example of how Indian ruling regime has crossed every limit of low with regards to humanity and ethics,” the JRL said.
“It has also exposed the hypocritical politics of Mehbooba-led regime who in Kashmir does not tolerate any political program and imposes curfew, unleashes reign of terror against resistance camp and arrests political activists under black laws like PSA to prevent such programs but on other hand is seen providing full police protection to an anti-human rally by fascist forces in Jammu.”
Terming the rally by Hindu Ekta Munch in support of a “thug, rapist and murderer” as a slap on the face of whole humanity, JRL said this rally was led by a BJP assembly member which is “a glaring proof of the fascist mindset of the ruling class in India and Jammu Kashmir”.
“Though Kashmiris have had no faith in those who make noise of Beti Bachav on daily basis but it was also not expected of those who worship Sita and Radha to come such blatantly open in favour of a person who raped an innocent girl and killed her like a beast,” the JRL said. “By this act of utmost shamelessness, these fascists have clearly shown that for their religious fantasy, they can stoop to any low because honour and dignity of women folk and life of a human holds no value to them.”
JRL said no religion can allow such support for a rapist and killer and the organisers, supporters, participants and the collaborators of the shameful rally have actually by their disgraceful act dishonoured their own religion too.
“Organising and allowing a rally in support of a rapist and killer with full police protection has cleared another fact – that the so-called rulers, their police and civil administration are hand in glove with these criminals. Instead of supporting a criminal, these people should have come on roads to demand an exemplary punishment for the criminal but the animosity against Muslims and Kashmiris has engulfed their eyes and minds so much that these people with dead conscience came out displaying Indian flag in support of the very criminal.”
