SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) chairperson Aasiya Andrabi has said the massive participation of people in funeral prayers of militants shows that the people of Kashmir are deeply in love with “Mujahideen”.
In a statement issued here, Andrabi paid glorious tributes to the “bravery and valour” of the people of Hajin for demonstrating “extreme will” and massive participation in the funeral of the slain militant.
The DeM chief also alleged that an under detention militant Mushtaq Ahmad Chopan in Tral Police Station was murdered in custody.
“For the last one month and 27 days, he was in police custody as he was arrested on 7 January 2018. Police tried to cook up a number of stories but failed to give satisfactory answers. The IGP SP Pani first said that Mushtaq Chopan tried to flee while a policeman was with him putting on the handcuffs, and someone threw a grenade inside the police station to help him escape and in the process Mushtaq was killed,” Aasiya said. “Later in the day, the IGP changed his statement and said that Mushtaq tried to escape wearing a Burqa.”
“Mushtaq was killed in police custody,” Andrabi said. “The custodial killing is a heinous crime as per international law.”
She asked people to “remain steadfast and seek Almighty Allah’s help so that we get freedom from the military occupation of India”.
She said Muslims across the world are butchered and they are not getting any support. “In Syria, children are being bombarded but nobody is raising questions. The UN is dead and the rest of the world including Arab world has turned deaf and dumb towards the Muslims issues.”
“We should not keep hopes on the worldly powers, rather turn to Allah and seek His help. He is the only super power who can give us freedom,” the Dukhtaran chief added.
