Sajjad Shaheen condemns supporters of accused rapist
Banihal, Apr 21: A massive protest rally led by JKNC leader and district president Ramban Sajjad Shaheen was taken out in Banihal today in which a great number of people from all walks of life including youth participated and expressed their solidarity with the little rape victim of Kathua and condemned the approach and attempt of some political organisations and anti peace elements to save the culprits of heinous crime of rape and murder of a 8 year old kid of Rasana, Kathua.
The protest rally marched through the main Bazar of Banihal town to get their voice and anger registered by the administration which as a result blocked the traffic movement for sometime on National highway. The rally turned into a public meeting at old bus stand Banihal which was addressed by Shaheen.
In his speech the NC leader highlighted the need of giving capital punishment to the crime doers who brought shame to the nation and saddened the entire humanity. He said NC from the day 1 has raised strong voice for bringing the culprits to the book and handing over death sentence to them. He said that the insult to injury is that some vested and communal elements including some politicians and political parties are supporting the accused either in a clear manner or in a hidden way. He said they are bent upon disturbing the amity and brotherhood prevailing between various communities for vote bank politics and selfish interests. He said instead of raising voice against the criminals and in favour of an innocent victim who was tortured raped, kept in captivity and ultimately murdered. He said these elements are trying to create confusion and influence the process of justice.
Shaheen called for a fast track justice to the victim and asked the people to remain united and not to fall prey in the hands of communal elements who use religion time and again to divide the society for getting advantage.
While addressing, Shaheen condemned the dual standards of State Congress Chief G.A Mir and the congress leaders who supported the Jammu Bandh call which was aimed at shielding the rapist and murderers of the Rape Victim.
The JKNC Youth activists also burnt down the effigies of BJP leaders C.P Ganga, Ch. Lal singh & State Congress chief G.A Mir. (KNS)
