SRINAGAR: Condemning what he described as a naked aggression by Police and government forces on the people protesting against the killing of Burhan Muzaffar Wani and his two associates that resulted in 19 civilian killings during the past two days, Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Sunday stressed that the way government forces were executing their Shoot to Kill policy, it was evident that India had declared a war against Kashmir.
Terming the thrashing of injured civilians admitted at SMHS Hospital and their women attendants by government forces as the worst example of state terrorism, Mirwaiz, who is under house arrest for the past several days, said, Police and government forces in Jammu Kashmir had been let loose and the way they were trampling all human rights should serve as an eye opener for all international human rights organizations and friends of humanity.
Stressing that the public uprising and display of resistance by the people following the killing of Burhan should serve as a lesson to New Delhi, Mirwaiz said, Government of India cannot continue to deal with Kashmir with a clampdown and that Kashmiris would never accept their politics of oppression and suppression.
The Hurriyat leader said, the public uprising had once more proved that Kashmir issue was not an administrative issue or an issue of change in governance but was connected to the wishes and aspirations of the people and that no solution to the issue could be arrived at by ignoring them.
