Srinagar: The Hurriyat Conference (M) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Saturday voiced concern over the establishment of yet another army camp at Qaimoh in Redwani area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.
“The people of this area have been left at the mercy of forces as the setting up of new army camp have made the life of inhabitants’ miserable,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “The area already has a full-fledged army camp and setting up another one at Redwani is a move to force those living there to migrate to other places, which is totally unjustified.”
The Hurriyat said that even though the people of Redwani and Qaimoh area are on roads from the past one week against the setting up of army camp, the government is not paying heed to their demands.
While extending support to the peoples’ demand for the removal of army camp, the amalgam said residents should not feel alone at these hard times.
“The time is the witness that military might have always been used to crush the genuine dissent in Kashmir and the fresh move of setting up an army camp at Redwani has proved that force is the only tool used to muzzle the people’s genuine demands,” the Hurriyat said.
The Hurriyat also denounced the assault on the Kashmiri students at Noida and said such attack was carried with an intention to kill them as those injured have been left with broken limbs and arms. “All the state governments across India have failed to ensure protection to Kashmiri students and instead fanatic forces are being given a free hand to beat and thrash the Kashmiri students and that so far no action has been taken against these goons against whom there are ample shreds of evidence,” the amalgam said.
Meanwhile, the Hurriyat spokesman expressed shock and grief over the tragic road accident at Ramban which killed 13 people and over 17 sustained injuries. The spokesman extended solidarity and sympathy with the families of those who lost their dear ones and prayed for the speedy recovery of those injured.
