Collective conscience of Kashmiris shaken: Geelani

Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, Tuesday said rape and murder of minor girl, Ashifa has shaken the collective conscience of people of Kashmir.
Blaming the administration for their callous and careless approach, he said, “Instead of taking swift action against culprits, people and Gujjar leader protesting against the gruesome incident were arrested. It illustrates their ‘bigoted’ mindset.”
Geelani expressed his heartfelt sympathies with the grieved family of minor and slammed police authorities for their uncalled and unjustified action against the people participating in Rasm-e-Chaharum of the victim.
“People in a peaceful manner were protesting against the brutal killing of minor but they were manhandled and arrested. Instead of taking any action against the accused, police arrested those, who were protesting against the rape and murder of the minor girl,” he said.
Geelani took dig at the people, who never miss a chance to make hue and cry about these gruesome incidents but at the same time share their moments with the “perpetrators”.
“They should remember that they are the people, whose hands are soaked in blood of innocents and responsible for humiliating and massacre of common people,” he added.
