Srinagar: The Jama’at-e-Islami Friday condemned the forces “excesses” in many areas of Pulwama in south Kashmir, saying these measures are forcing residents to migrate.
In a statement, Jama’at alleged that in Trechal Pulwama, the forces crossed all limits when they attacked the inhabitants of the village and ruthlessly beat everyone who came in their way with sticks and gun barrels and broke the window panes of all vehicles standing on the roads and streets.
“Then they entered the residential houses and caused an irreparable damage to the household goods and property including the doors and windows and more than a dozen innocent persons were seriously injured who were referred to different hospitals for treatment,” the Jama’at spokesperson said.
He claimed that similar excesses by the forces were carried in Newa village near Pulwama and the residents left their homes and migrated to some other places.
Jama’at appealed to the international and local human rights bodies to take note of these rights violations.
