Srinagar: Expressing anguish over the rising incidents of crime against women, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Thursday said that such incidents are the fallout of the prevailing un-Islamic trends in the society.
Islam teaches us to respect female folk and we must follow the tenets of Islam as it is the only way we can stop violence against women, spokesman JKLF said in a statement.
The spokesman appealed to the clerics and preachers, especially Islamic scholars to play their role and persuade the people especially the youth to follow the tenets of Islam. It is irony that the husband acted as a mute spectator a week before in old city and did not try to save her better-half (Shazia) when she set herself ablaze. Such incidents show that we have stopped following the principles Islam. We appeal to people to be patient and humane towards female folk and stop violence against them, he said.
