SRINAGAR: Condemning the recent attack on an election rally in Quetta Pakistan in which more than 150 people were killed, Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday said killing of innocent humans can only be termed as savagery.
“Quetta killings are the handiwork of those cowards who believe in spilling innocent human blood for their selfish motives,” Malik said in a statement issued here.
Terming the killings as barbaric and an act of extreme cowardice, JKLF chairman said killing innocent humans for fulfilling personal political motives can only be termed as savagery which has no place in a civilised human social order.
He said inhuman killings become much more gruesome and horrible when killers try to misuse the name of religion especially Islam to justify these.
“How can Islam – the religion of peace and harmony – be used for killing unarmed men, women and children? A religion that terms saving one human as saving the whole humanity and killing of one human as killing the whole humanity cannot be used to justify innocent killings. Killers cannot take refuge of a religion which derives its name from the word ‘peace’ and restrains its followers from attacking unarmed opponents and even (orders for) escorting them to safety in times of war.”
Malik expressed heartfelt grief over the killing of more than 150 innocent people including a political leader Siraj Raisani and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.
