JRL condemns killing of Srinagar youth, other ‘repressive measures’
Srinagar: The Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik Saturday strongly condemned the killing of another youth Qaisar Amin Bhat of Fateh Kadal by CRPF vehicle at Nowhatta yesterday.
The JRL in a statement said that the killing spree of Kashmirs by the forces continues despite ‘Ramadan ceasefire’ either by bullets, pellets or lately by crushing them under their vehicles.
“What is worse is that after mowing down Qaisar under forces vehicle a case for “rash driving” has been registered by the police in this regard as if the incident happened by accident, when it is a case of murder,” the statement said adding “The culprits would anyway go scot free under AFSPA.”
The JRL said the that assaulting mourners during the funeral and burial of Qaisar with teargas shells and pellets causing grave injuries to scores of them again reflects the authorities anti-people and inhuman approach .
“Repeatedly imposing curfew and severe restrictions, snapping internet services, barricading roads, deploying of forces at nook and corner even in the holy month of Ramazan causing grave inconvenience and harassment to the people living is uncalled for and highly condemnable.
“All these repressive measures are big stumbling blocks for peace in Kashmir and any kind of engagement,” it added.
