Srinagar, May 26: Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Omer Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik expressed strong resentment over awarding Major Gogoi, who had used a youth Farooq Ahmad as a human shield and called peaceful protest after Friday prayers on 26th May, against this inhuman act. It vindicates our claim that India is following fascist dogma and acting as a colonial state, said resistance leadership in their joint statement.
Appealing human rightist organizations, ICJ and Amnesty International for their cognizance and impressed to fulfill their responsibilities in saving precious lives in occupied state.
In a joint statement to KNS, they blamed Indian leadership for their dictatorial behavior and said that their forces are involved in war crimes against civilians.
Life and dignity of civilians is at stake, said leadership and while calling it state sponsored terrorism, said that awarding erring officer for this inhuman and unjustified act vindicates our claim that forces are involved in war crimes and are patronized and encouraged by Indian leadership.
This tantamount to justifying the human rights violations and sending a clear message to the people that they can go to any extent without any apprehension of accountability, said joint leadership.
State has been turned into a high militarized zone and as such India has no legal claim over state instead it is a forcible occupation which they are retaining through its military might, said they.
The leadership said that people in Jammu and Kashmir are following their peaceful struggle to make an end to the forced occupation and India with its military might is trampling all ethics and inflicting atrocities on civilians, said leadership.
Warning India of dire consequences, joint leadership in their statement said that by inflicting atrocities and denying basic rights they are pushing people to wall and compelling them to show resentment against these repressive measures.
Resistance leadership appealed to the International Court of Justice to take Suo Moto action against this barbaric act and termed the decision as “extremely distressing” and a shameful act. (KNS)
