Srinagar, Jan 06: 1993, Massacre at Sopore reminds us of Indian oppression and illegal occupation. So-called rulers, their police and agencies which are hell bent upon tarnishing and terrorizing the lives of thousands of young and old Kashmiris especially political activists under the garb of so-called investigations should spare some time to panelize those also who killed and charred more than 60 humans at Sopore on 6th January 1993. This was stated by the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik while recalling the brutal act of genocide by Indian occupational forces at Sopore. JKLF chairman who is incarcerated at central jail Srinagar from 3rd January 2018, said that Indian occupation on Jammu Kashmir is marked by massacres like Sopore in which trigger happy Indian soldiers obeying the orders of their political masters killed thousands of Kashmiris in cold blood. He said that massacres at Gaw Kadal, Batamaloo Bypass, Zakoora, Masahli Mohala in Srinagar, Bijbihara Islamabad, Handwara, Kupwara, Baderwah, Poonch and at many other places are actually a glaring paradigm of how India is keeping Jammu Kashmir with it by military and police might. JKLF chairman said that brutal killing of thousands, arbitrary arrests, disappearance of thousands in custody, attacks on the chastity of women, burning and blasting down residential houses and putting entire localities and markets on fire, injuring and snatching eyesight of thousands, humiliating elders and young ones and other acts of suppression like these are all examples of Indian brutalities in Jammu Kashmir and so-called assembly members, local rulers, members of Panchayats and municipal councils are directly or indirectly responsible for these gruesome acts. JKLF chairman said that the faces of BSF, CRPF, SOG and Indian army officers and personal that killed about 60 innocents at Sopore and hundreds of others at other places are well-known but till date no one among them has been penalized or booked which shows the apathy of so-called Indian democracy towards Kashmiris. He said that so-called rulers who always boast about their democracy and healing touch have initiated a new reign of terror against innocent Kashmiris especially political activists in the name of enquiries through police stations and have turned the lives of thousands into hell, should save some time to investigate and penalize killers in uniform and deliver justice to those brutalized by their forces.
While paying rich tributes to those martyred on 6th January 1993, in Sopore, JKLF chairman said that the blood of these innocent martyrs will never go waste and today when we all are recalling the sacrifices of these innocent martyrs, we pledge to take forward their mission at every cost. JKLF chairman also expressed solidarity with the families and kith and kin of all those martyred on that fatal day and prayed for their heavenly abode.
