Srinagar, Sep 03: Jama’at-e-Islami (JeI) Jammu and Kashmir on Monday said that during the cordon and search operation in about eighteen villages of Pulwama district, the people under siege were subjected to ‘severe hardships’ and no one was allowed to move out.
In a statement issued to KNS, JeI said that a number of innocent youth were ruthlessly beaten and the peaceful protestors were indiscriminately fired upon by these merciless forces personnel resulting in the death of a 22-year-old Fayaz Ahmad Wani, son of Mohammad Ahsan Wani of Chewa Kalan and grievous injuries to many others out of whom some have been admitted in different hospitals in critical conditions.
“The oppressed people of the valley in particular that of the South Kashmir are facing the worst treatment at the hands of these merciless forces personnel and living like the hired slaves,” the statement said.
JeI strongly condemning what they termed as ‘barbarism’ of the Indian forces, which tantamount to ‘state terrorism’.
They also expressed its anguish over the meaningful silence of the world community and impresses upon the international and local human rights organizations to take concrete and effective cognizance of these worst human rights violations instead of issuing mere statements which have utterly failed to contain these violations.
Jama’at also appealed Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) to come forward for the safeguard of lacs of Kashmiris facing terrible genocide at the hands of these unruly forces. (KNS)
