SRINAGAR: Hurriyat Conference (G) secretary general Ghulam Nabi Sumji on Tuesday condemned the alleged ransacking of properties by government forces during search operations and night raids in south Kashmir villages, saying authorities have “waged a war on innocent civilians”.
“We strongly condemn the night raids in Shopian and adjacent areas,” Sumji said in a statement. “Forces have turned state into a battlefield.”
Sumji appealed to UNO, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, International Red Cross and international organisations for human rights to “take cognisance of rights violations” in Kashmir, saying people in state are “worst sufferers”.
Meanwhile, a high level deputation of Hurriyat (G) led by Shah Wali Mohammad visited the grieved family of a prominent pro-freedom activist Mohammad Altaf Malik and on behalf of amalgam chairman Syed Ali Geelani extended condolence.
Hailing the deceased’s contribution to movement, Shah expressed condolence and solidarity with the bereaved family.
