Srinagar: Deputy Mayor Srinagar Sheikh Mohammad Imran on Wednesday said instead of banning the civil traffic on the highway, government should ban pellet guns, PSA, AFSPA and other black laws in Kashmir.
“Highways have never been banned for civil traffic, it is Hitler’s policy and these things should be reviewed again,” Imran said in a statement issued here.
He said that Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) should be renamed as “Ban Janta Party because they are banning everything in the country”. “They have banned beef, Triple Talaq, Jamaat-I-Islami, Peace Tv, Zakir Naik and other things in the state which is the clear human rights violation,” he said.
“Kashmiris will never bow down by such tactics and government of India has to accept the ground reality,” Imran said.
He said the government should ban Tik tok, PUBG and other such mobile applications that are raising concerns about mental health.
Imran condemned threat calls made to the staff of Jammu bureau of Greater Kashmir, calling it a direct attack on the freedom of the press while demanding a probe into the incident.
He urged Inspector General of Police to investigate the matter and demanded that the identity of the culprits should be ascertained so that they are booked under the law.
