AFSPA Root Cause of Every Evil in Kashmir: Prashant Bhushan

Says Resolve Kashmir ASAP

SRINAGAR: Urging Government of India to resolve Kashmir issue as soon as possible noted Supreme Court lawyer, Prashant Bhushan Tuesday claimed that no Kahsmiri was safe in any part of India as communal forces were ruling the country.

“In Kashmir Army is responsible for suppression while in India communal forces including extremist Hindu outfits are busy terrorizing Kashmiri people who manage their affairs in different parts of India. “How can you expect that a Kashmiri is safe in India when police can do encounter of anybody even of an Indian in any part of the country,” Prashant Bhushan said in an interview with local news agency CNS. 

Commenting on the mysterious death of Kashmiri student in Hyderabad, Prashant Bhushan said there is lawlessness in whole country. “Not to speak of Kashmiri people even a common Indian is not safe in India! All over country police was indulging in fake encounters. Hindu sponsored terrorism is on peak. No one is safe here. The reality is that Kashmiri’s are being maltreated and suppressed by communal forces in every corner of the country,” Bhushan, who is part of anti-corruption movement sweeping India said.

He said the execution of Afzal Guru exposed India all over world. “The way Afzal was not allowed to meet his family before his execution exposed India and people of Kashmir came to know about the real face of India. I sincerely believe that Kashmir is an issue and it needs to be resolved. The early India will resolve it, the better it will be for it,” Prashant Bhushan said and added that policies of Central Government towards Kashmir were full of fallacies.

Urging Government of India to repeal Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) from Jammu and Kashmir and North East, Bhushan said that AFSPA was the root cause of every evil in Kahsmir. Army is suppressing people in the garb of this contentious Act and it must be abolished. “Make Army accountable and take action against erring personnel who kill people. It is unfortunate that people of Kashmir are not being heard and flocked like cattle; he said adding that the more government will suppress the sentiments of people the more people will resist and develop hatred and anger towards India.
