Srinagar: A Kashmir Pandit representing Jammu and Kashmir Reconciliation Front on Saturday staged one-day hunger strike in Srinagar against the “criminal silence of civil societies and intellectuals against the death and destruction in Kashmir”.
The strike, according to Front’s chairman Dr Sandeep Mawa, is to express solidarity with Muslims of Kashmir and urge both India and Pakistan to resolve Kashmir dispute.
“Jammu and Kashmir has suffered a lot during last 28 years. I understand that there has been death and destruction due to vested interest but I am more worried about the criminal silence of civil societies and intellectuals. How long will we suffer,” Mawa said.
“Killing cannot be the order of the day. Enough is enough how long as a Hindu would I be insensitive to these developments”, he added.
