Yasin Malik condemns Qazigund, Kulgam killings

Terms it as ‘glaring example of this inhumanness’

Srinagar, Sep 15


Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday condemned the killings at Qazigund and Kulgam, saying that “addiction for human blood and impunity from punishment has turned Indian forces inhuman.”

In a statement issued to KNS, Malik said that Qazigund and Kulgam carnage is a ‘glaring example of this inhumanness’.

Terming the ongoing spree of killings in Kashmir as ‘genocide’, Malik said that from Handwara to Sopore and Baramulla, Bandipora to Srinagar, Qazigund and Kulgam, blood of Kashmiris is being spilled ruthlessly by forces with no regret or remorse on this human tragedy.

He said that “first space on political dissent is choked and young Kashmiris are pushed to the wall and left with no other option but to go for ultimate sacrifice and then they are massacred at will by colonial forces.”

Expressing his anguish over the killing of yet another unarmed civilian Raof Ahmad Ganai who was killed at Kulgam, Malik said that “another budding flower has been trampled under military boots and dozens have been injured many of whom are critical.”

“Indian rulers and their Kashmiri supporters have no remorse or regret on this human loss and instead they are enjoying and cherishing this human tragedy. Appreciating and rewarding those who directly aim at heads and chests and drag or mutilate dead bodies is criminal and has turned forces like savages who have no respect for humanity or humans,” he said.
He said that “ongoing bloodshed in Kashmir is the result of the illogical approach of Indian rulers who treat Jammu Kashmir as their occupied colony and use their forces to kill, maim, humiliate, arrest and subjugate Kashmiris.”

Expressing solidarity with the bereaved families of slain persons including Gulzar Ahmad Padder of Adijan Kulgam, Faisal Ahmad Rather of Yamrach Kulgam, Zahid Ahmad Mir of Okey Kulgam, Masroor Molvi of Fatehpora Islamabad (Anantnag), Zahoor Ahmad Lone of Nagnad Noorabad, Liyaqat Ahmad, Furqan Ahmad of Langate Handwara and Raof Ahmad Ganie of Kulgam, Malik said that “our hearts go to these bereaved families and we pray to Allah for their Sabr-I-Jamil.” (KNS)
