Jama’at asks OIC and UNO to Intervene


SRINAGAR: Jama’at-e-Islami (JeI) Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday while paying glow­ing tributes to militant com­mander Burhan Wani and his two associates said that “India must read the writing on wall before it is too late”.

“The government of India might have understood the fact that the people of Kashmir love the brave youth like Burhan Wani from the core of their heart and more than that of their own lives which has become evident by the presence of people from every nook and corner of val­ley in the last rites of Shaheed Burhan Wani and his associ­ates despite all types of curbs and restrictions imposed by the government,” JeI said in a state­ment issued this afternoon.

“Jama’at-e-Islami J&K strong­ly denounces the use of unwar­ranted and unbridled force by the Indian security agencies and SOG personnel of local po­lice against the peaceful protes­tors and killing scores of them in this tyrannical and barbaric way,” the statement said.

“The Indian government must understand that opening the barrels of guns and use of le­thal weapons against innocent Kashmiris, the just and right­ful movement for achieving the right of self-determination by the people going on since 1947 can never by suppressed. It is better for the Indian establish­ment and well its people to ac­cept this genuine demand of Kashmiri people and give them a chance to decide their politi­cal future in accordance to their wishes and aspirations as prom­ised to them under the UN reso­lutions,” the statement said.

The JeI statement further said, “it will be in the larger inter­ests of the whole sub-continent for its development and main­tenance of peace. The blood­shed of the common innocent people going on here can only be stopped if the Indian govern­ment respects the wishes of the people sincerely. By killing in­nocent people, this movement instead of being suppressed, gains momentum as it is based on just and rightful cause.”

Jama’at-e-Islami while express­ing solidarity with the bereaved families of the “victims of the Indian barbarity”, appealed the UNO and OIC to immediately intervene in this grave situation and take effective measures “to stop the state sponsored atrocities being committed upon the inno­cent Kashmiri people by the un­ruly Indian security agencies and also take diplomatic measures for the final and just resolution of the Kashmir issue in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the concerned people”.
