SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Monday slammed forces for “murdering” a mentally-challenged man, Syed Habibullah of Soibugh, Budgam, during the Sunday night.
In a statement, DeM general secretary Nahida Nasreen said, “Even if Habibullah had entered the army’s area, did not they have eyes to check that he was barefooted and without proper winter clothing. It is clear from the pictures that he looked mentally challenged. Who else will venture out in the fields barefooted and without winter clothing during the harsh winter days?”
“Indian army hardly cares whom they are killing. These murders make it amply clear that Indian army and the Indian state are the enemies of Kashmir,” she said.
“Although it has become evident to us a long time back, but these incidents should open the eyes of world powers and they should understand that Indians are butchering Kashmiris,” she added.
The people of Kashmir should equally understand that these butchers can never be our friends. “They do not just murder people associated with Hurriyat or any other pro-freedom group, nor do they murder mujahid only, they butcher Kashmiris at will without taking ideologies as a parameter.”
Nasreen said the people of Kashmir should not support either the Indian army or the pro-India political “stooges”.
