SRINAGAR: Chairman Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Monday said J&K “is a police state where killing innocent humans is a normal”.
“Today (south Kashmir’s) Pulwama witnessed yet another bloodbath which in all cases is condemnable. The ongoing military crackdown and spree of killings especially in southern districts of Kashmir is a well-strategised policy of Government of India,” Malik said in a statement issued here.
He said dozens of villages in Pulwama were besieged by forces and during this crackdown; the “trigger happy” forces opened fire on civilians killing one more youth Fayaz Ahmad of Chewa Kalan Pulwama and injured dozens.
“This killing spree is a well-devised plan of Indian occupation and its soul aim is to inflict more harm and injury to Kashmiris, intimidate them and force them into submission,” JKLF chief said.
“The young Fayaz Ahmad was fired directly in his head and others who have received bullets or pellets also have received injuries above chests. This clears the fact that killers in uniform fire to kill only as they have no respect or regret for human life,” he said.
“Killings, arrests, loots and shootings cannot put a nation into submission which has resolved to fight for its freedom and dignity,” Malik said. “Indian rulers must realise that the people of Jammu Kashmir cannot be put into submission by these tyrannical acts and killings. In fact our resolve to achieve freedom and right to self determination gets strengthened.”
Meanwhile, JKLF chairman expressed heartfelt grief over the demise of the mother of senior resistance leader General Moosa and termed it as a great loss.
“She was wife of a martyr and mother of another martyr and stood in the first row when time for sacrifice came,” Malik said. “The departed mother and his whole family rendered valuable sacrifices for the freedom of Jammu Kashmir and no Kashmiri can ever overlook these sacrifices.”
He prayed for heavenly abode of the deceased and forbearance to the bereaved family.
JKLF chairman and other party leaders including Noor Mohammed Kalwal, Mushtaq Ajmal and Bashir Kashmiri visited the bereaved family and prayed for the heavenly abode of the deceased, the statement said.
