SRINAGAR: Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Wednesday slammed the police for “harassing” and asking the parents of the girls associated with party, and also well wishers, to visit police stations in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
“For the past many days, the police officials in Islamabad (Anantnag) especially Additional SP, Tahir Ashraf Bhatti, have been harassing the parents of girls who are either members or well-wishers of DeM by continuously asking them to visit police stations,” DeM spokesperson, Rifat Fatima, said in a statement.
She said that it is tactic to harass and subjugate these innocent girls and women who are dedicated to the cause of DeM. “I want to tell this puppet government and its shameless police that the cadres of DeM or their parents are not so weak that they will appear before police whenever they are called,” she said.
“It it is utter shameful and frustration of police that they are asking the faithful, Purdah-clad Muslim daughter to visit police stations. These girls live their life as ordained to them by the Almighty Allah and by threatening them and forcing them to visit police stations is something which will not be tolerated and accepted by the DeM and people of Kashmir. The aim of this harassment and threat is to break our resolve, which is impossible,” Rifat added.
She said the members of DeM will sacrifice their lives but won’t act on diktats of the policemen.
She said that two of the girls Tanfiah Rasool and Sumaira Rasool have been lodged in Saddar police station Anantnag under police remand.
