Srinagar, May 03: The Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has strongly condemned the Bomai, Sopore incident in which army severely thrashed female members of a family saying Indian occupational forces are venting out their frustration by unleashing a reign of terror across the Valley.
In a statement issued to KNS, DFP secretary general Moulana Abdullah Tari while condemning the Indian army’s thrashing of a family including a young girl said that in the name of “survey”, army is manhandling people.
“The so-called state administration should answer under which law does army barge into the homes and beat the inmates. This is extremely shameful on part of the government. The occupational forces and puppet government should bear in mind that people of Jammu Kashmir take such issues very seriously and incidents like these are intolerable,” he said.
Expressing full solidarity with the victimised family, Moulana said the thrashing of the family of Fayaz Ahmad Bhat clearly reveals that for the lust of power, this government has not only surrendered itself before Delhi but also sold its conscience.
Tari termed the statement of army as a big lie and demanded probe into the incident by any impartial investigation body as the state police is “untrustworthy” and has always shielded the culprits of such kind of cases.
The DFP secretary general also condemned the inhuman attitude of authorities against the political prisoners languishing in Central Jail, Jaipur and Tihar Jail and said several prisoners have crossed 22 years of incarceration. “Latief Ahmad Waja, Abdul Gani Goni, Mirza Nisar Hussain, and Mehmood Ali Bhat of Jaipur Central Jail were severely beaten and are often harassed under one pretext or other.”
“Similarly in Tihar Jail, Javaid Ahmad Khan and Naushad Ahmad were also beaten. This is political vengeance,” he said.
Moulana urged the resistance leadership to devise a strategy regarding the release of political prisoners languishing in outside J&K. “The international human rights organisations including Amnesty International, ICRC should use their good offices in this regard,” he said. (KNS)
