SRINAGAR: Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehraie on Saturday condemned the killing of three civilians including a teenage girl in Redwani Kulgam in forces’ firing.
In a statement, Sehraie appealed to international community to take cognisance of the “appalling situations” and “state-sponsored terrorism” in Kashmir.
“The growing Indian aggression against unarmed and peaceful people in the state has touched the alarm line and turned this beautiful place into a battlefield,” Sehraie said. “Under a well-thought-out plan, the Indian authorities, forces and their henchmen are carrying out genocide.”
He said Kashmir has been turned into a killing field where the lives of men, women and even school going children are not safe.
Lashing out at New Delhi and its “local stooges” for their “fascist” mindset, Sehrai said they have “let loose a reign of terror against unarmed civilians”.
“Killings, torture, detentions and arbitrary measures will neither deter us from pursuing our mission nor break our resolve,” he said.
Paying tributes to Burhan Wani and other slain “brave-hearts”, Sehrai said their sacrifices will be written in golden letters in the resistance history of Kashmir.
“He will serve as beacon light for our movement,” the TeH chairman said.
He also condemned the shifting of DeM chairperson Aasiya Andrabi and her two associates Nahida Nasreen and Fehmeeda Sofi to Tihar jail, saying “Delhi and its stooges have gone so low that rhetoric of respect and dignity of women folk draws totally hoax when it comes to deal with our nation”.
