‘Such practice of using people as human shield going on since three decades’
Srinagar, Apr 15: Senior Hurriyat leader and Jammu Kashmir National Front chairman, Nayeem Ahmad Khan on Saturday said that the practice of using common people as human shield by the forces is going on in the disputed region since three decades however the new generation has started now to react against such ‘tyrannies’.
Strongly condemning the tying of a man at an army vehicle in Budgam, Khan according to the statement issued to KNS, said that the forces have been directed to insult, injure and humiliate Kashmiri people so that they surrender at the doors of New Delhi.
He said that Indian forces and the local mainstream political parties are involved in gross human rights violations in the disputed region where these ‘oppressive forces’ have been busy in extra judicial killings, rapes, disappearances, loot and plunder. “Now the new generation has started reacting against Indian atrocities and world slowly knows the real face of India,” he said.
Khan strongly condemned the Indian media which ‘only shows one part the coin and always hides the other’. “The Indian media, especially the TV news channels on one hand highlight the smallest thing about unarmed protesters but hides the Himalayan facts about the dance of death which Indian forces are performing in the disputed region,” he added.
He said that such attitude not only harms their professional integrity but image of their country as well. “The day is not far when san people will refuse to watch and believe Indian news channels. These media organizations should mend their ways to keep the torch of professionalism burning otherwise a large junk of India which thinks positive and has honest vision over things may revolt against them,” he said.
