Srinagar: The Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) led by Muhammad Yasin Khan today said the arrests and re-opening of schools can’t go together and accused the government of unleashing a reign of terror across the Valley.
Khan in a statement said the Mehbooba Mufti led government has been giving sleepless nights to the people of Kashmir and Chenab Valley through arrests and nocturnal raids.
“Muslims of Kashmir and Chenab Valley are living under continuous fear whereas in the same territory armed Bhakts of RSS are given police protection to carry out marches, which are aimed at frightening the majority community of the state,” Khan said.
He said Education Minister Naeem Akhter is acting like a "programmed-robot" who knows only to issue provocative statements for reopening of schools.
“No doubts education is must for life. But let the minister be informed that education is subject to life and creating conducive environment. How will the youth who is wounded in government action, or arrested, or is into hiding to avoid arrest attend school or college?” Khan asked.
He said the arrest spree was pushing people to wall and could have far reaching consequences.
Appealing to the international community and the Indian civil society to intervene, Khan expressed serious concern over the detention of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik. (PTK)
