Civilians killed in army firing in Shopian a matter of concern

Srinagar Jan 28: The working president of Muslim Conference Jahangir
Gani Butt in a statement issued today said that forces everywhere
across the globe help nations to establish peace but in Kashmir forces
are given free hand to kill civilian and kill people of Kashmir for
their sport. He said, Indian armed forces are responsible for killing
our generation in Kashmir and they are responsible for sabotaging
dialogue/peace process. Government of India should understand too much
violence has already taken place and too many lives lost and it’s time
to put an end to all this.

He said the civilians killed in army firing in Shopian district of
south Kashmir yesterday were not militants but students. He appealed
the world bodies to take serious cognizance of the deteriorating
situation in Kashmir at the hands of Indian soldiers and has urged the
National Human Rights Commission of India and UN High Commissioner for
Human Rights Council to take urgent notice of the situation.

He questioned the state authorities about the enquiries in Kashmir so
far have been ordered and can they give any example of punishment to
murderers. He said even culprits of Matchil fake encounter were left
free and this isn’t justice, they were killed for money by the Indian
soldiers of 4 Rajputana Rifles who killed them in the fake encounter
and dubbed them as Pakistani militants.

He said that people of Kashmir have rendered unparalleled sacrifices
for freedom of Kashmir and paid high tribute to the civilian martyrs
at Ganapora, and expressed solidarity with the bereaved families. He
prayed for the fast recovery of the injured.
