SRINAGAR: Terming the Shopian tragedy as “a blot on the men in uniform”, Jammu Kashmir National Front on Tuesday paid tributes Aasyia and Neelofar.
Remembering both young women, a spokesperson of National Front said, “Aasyia and Neelofar were brutally raped before martyred by the men in uniform on this day in 2009. Later, CBI was brought to shield the culprits and this Indian investigating agency did what it was brought for.”
However, the spokesperson said, Aasyia and Neelofar like victims from Kunan Poshpora to Shopian will always be remembered as victims of Indian “oppression, suppression and tyranny”.
He stressed upon human rights groups and forums to take strong notice of “using rape as war weapon” in Kashmir by Indian forces and take such measures which can prove helpful in bringing the culprits to justice.
