Srinagar: The Hurriyat Conference (G) led Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday expressed deep concern over the human rights violations in Kashmir and strongly condemned the use of force against the civil population and the families of militants by the government forces.
In a statement Geelani said, “Vandalizing the property of militant families and intimidating them on daily basis is highly deplorable,” adding that none of the International laws permits any such military action against the unarmed civilians.
Citing the examples of jailing two sons of Hizb chief, Syed Salah-ud-din by the NIA and damaging the house of militant Lateef Tiger by the government forces, the Hurriyat chairman said these measures are aimed at building pressure on the freedom loving people.
Geelani reiterated his stand that “militancy is the reaction to New Delhi’s stubbornness”.
Expressing shock over the murder of 10 year old girl- Muskan of Boniyar Uri in North Kashmir, the Hurriyat leader condemned the incident and demanded that the culprits involved in this gruesome incident must be brought to justice.
The Hurriyat leader said occurrence of such “heinous crimes” is a shame for our social fabric. “Our moral bankruptcy has erased the social and moral values. Extinction of humanity is visible,” he said and condemned the silence adopted by the authorities over this incident.
Geelani also condemned the frequent incarceration of senior Hurriyat leaders and activists and appealed to the International HR organizations to take serious note on human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir.
