Srinagar, Jun 22: Jama’at-e-Islami (JeI) Thursday said that under the cover of search operations, the Indian forces have started the process of harassing and intimidating the common masses throughout the valley turning their lives into a hell.
In a statement issued to KNS, JeI condemned “this act being devoid of all human, moral and legal justification besides a blatant violation of all the fundamental human rights.”
“The people are forcibly stopped from attending the funeral prayers of those martyred during the encounters thereby debarring them from performing their religious duties against which when people protest peacefully, these forces personnel use unabated power resulting in the further killings and injuries to the innocent persons,” the JeI spokesman said.
He said that so far hundreds of innocent persons have lost their lives and hundred others got injured during such tyrannical actions by the Indian forces.
“After Kakapora encounter in which three youth namely Shariq Ahmad, Majid Ahmad residents of Kakapora and Shabir Ahmad from Padgampora got martyred, the people were forcibly stopped by the government forces from attending their funeral prayers and during this process another innocent youth Tawseef Ahmad Wani s/o Ghulam Hassan Wani r/o Tenpona, Pulwama lost his life and dozens others got seriously injured due to indiscriminate shelling by these brute forces,” he said.
“The Indian government has adopted a condemnable retributive attitude towards the people here,” he said, adding that “Instead of taking concrete steps for resolving the Kashmir issue as per the aspirations of the common masses permanently, the Indian government is bent upon to crush the genuine voice of the people by dint of force and declare the people demanding their just right as terrorists only to defame them and mislead the international community whereas the Kashmiri people have come to roads to make the world aware of the fact that their fundamental and birth right of self-determination has been forcibly usurped.”
Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir while expressing its anguish over the stubborn and tyrannical attitude of Indian government towards the Kashmiri people, appeals the world community (UNO) and the human rights bodies to come forward and exercise their influence practically to save the Kashmiri people from the government sponsored terrorism and tyranny and help them in getting their fundamental right of self-determination as promised to them through the UN security council.
Further, Jama’at while paying tributes to all the four martyrs, expresses deep sympathy with the affected families. (KNS)
