Attack on common people at Hafshirmal act of state terrorism// JKLF
Srinagar, May 17: Indian oppression against Kashmiris is crossing its limits. Prolonging incarceration of young boys and beating people without discrimination glaring examples of this state sponsored terrorism. This was said by JKLF in a press release issued today. Citing the examples of five inmates who are languishing in illegal custody from many years ,JKLF said that Waseem Ahmad Sofi of Koundbal Ganaderbal who is a peaceful political activist was arrested in 2016 and till date has been slapped with three PSA’s. Similarly Basharat Ahmad Najar, Ashiq Hussain Bhat, Reyaz Ahmad Dar and Manzoor Ahmad Najar of Budgam who were granted bail by a court recently after four years have been re-arrested and are languishing in police custody illegally. JKLF also condemned the prolonged incarceration of JKLF district president Ganderbal Bashir Ahmad Boya, Mushtaq Ahmad Kupwara, Tanveer Ahmad Ilahi of Pulwama and Ashiq Hussain of Maisuma who are languishing in different jails under PSA. Terming these illegal incarcerations and oppressive measures against youth like pushing them to the wall and hence promoting violence, added JKLF. While strongly condemning the SOG and army assault on a whole village at Hafshrimal Shupian in which hundreds of civilians including young girls and women were beaten to pulp by forces ,JKLF said that India has actually declared a war against common Kashmiris and whosoever is coming their way is being oppressed and suppressed by military might. JKLF said that more than two dozen people have sustained pellet injuries in this small village and many innocent youth have been arrested which speaks volumes about the tyrannical behavior of Indian forces. JKLF prayed for the early recovery of those injured. JKLF said that oppression and tyranny can never force Kashmiri nation into submission and resistance against this naked fascism will continue with passion and zeal.
