Srinagar: Asking New Delhi to break its silence over the present unrest in Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Front (PDF) president and MLA Khansahib Hakim Mohammad Yasin today said that Jallianwala Bagh like situations are being repeated in the Valley every day.
“The way British used brute force on unarmed protesters at Jallianwala Bagh in 1919, forces in Kashmir are repeating the same in Kashmir every day. Why are unarmed protesters targeted by the forces in every nook and corner of the Kashmir,” Hakim Yasin asked in a statement to press.
The PDF chief expressed surprise and concern over the silence of central government over the present crisis in the Valley. “I am at loss to understand why government of India thinks that everything in Kashmir is normal. It is different situation than 2008 and 2010.”
“Still there is time for New Delhi and the J&K government to take steps and immediately stop the killings in Kashmir. Otherwise the situation can go out of control which would be disastrous,” he warned.
