Jama’at Survey Reveals Govt Forces Have ‘Targeted Vital Parts Of Victims’


SRINAGAR: A high level del­egation of Jama’at-e-Islami (JeI) Jammu and Kashmir led by Advocate Zahid Ali visited the families of almost all those who were killed during the on-going public protests after the death of popular militant commander Burhan Wani. 

The delegation visited South Kashmir districts of Pul­wama, Shopian, Kulgam and Islamabad and paid glowing tributes to the slain persons and expressed total solidarity with the bereaved families. 

The delegation included JeI’s tehsil presidents of Kul­gam and Islamabad, Ghulam Mohi-ud-din Kolapuri and Gulzar Ahmad Uranhali and the manager of The Daily Moomin newspaper, Moham­mad Ashraf Mir, a statement issued by JeI said on Friday. 

“Most of the martyrs are teenaged youth besides three women and became victims of target firing by CRPF, Indian army and SOG of Police,” the statement said. 

“The peaceful protestors were demanding their basic Right of Self Determination which has been promised to the people of Kashmir by India in 1947 and 1948 through the UN resolutions which is yet to be fulfilled. The Indian forces and SOG of police have crossed all limits of oppression and in order to terrorize people have killed these youth and women in cold-blood without any justi­fication at all and as such have committed heinous offences of the massacre of unarmed civil­ians violating all norms of hu­manity blatantly and brazenly demonstrated their barbaric face and inner hatred towards the Kashmiri Muslims,” the statement said. 

“Most of the victims of this barbarity have received bullets and pellets on their vi­tal parts above the legs which have led either to their death or permanent disability,” the statement detailed. 

Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir vehemently denounced the “use of bru­tal force by the Indian forces against the civilians raising their voice for their cherished Right of Self Determination”. 

“The world has witnessed the determination of the Kash­miri’s will to achieve their birth right at any cost. Those who are trying to befool them in the name of restoring peace are destined to meet utter fail­ure,” the statement said. 

Jama’at asks the interna­tional forums and OIC to come forward and save the Kashmiri people from “annihilation at the hands of Indian forces and SOG of Police who have been given free license to kill the ci­vilians in order to deter them from their peaceful struggle for the achievement of their basic right of self-determination”. 

Jama’at-e-Islami appealed all international human rights bodies to take serious note of unjustified use of “state force” by government of India against the civilians and indiscrimi­nate firing by automatic and pellet guns causing irrepa­rable and grievous injuries to thousands of youth who were peacefully protesting against the illegal occupation and non-fulfilment of the pledge to hold a public referendum regarding the political future of Kashmir under the control of UNO.
