Unabated ‘State Terrorism’ Aims To Crush Genuine Voice: Jama’at

 J&K’s largest socio-economic-politico organization, Jama’at-e-Islami (JeI), on Thursday vehemently denounced the “brutal killing” of an innocent Muslim woman.

JeI in a statement said that the lady was killed by “by an unruly gang of Indian army personnel who in nocturnal patrolling fired indiscriminately in Moolu Chitragam, Shopian to terrorize the innocent people and killed an innocent lady” in her home and ransacked a number of residential houses smashing the windowpanes of a number of vehicles besides the doors and windows just like the dacoits used to do in the old times.

“The armed forces have been given free hand to deal with the local people so as to crush them for raising their genuine voice against the brutal human rights violations by these lawless forces personnel,” Jama’at said.

It appealed international bodies particularly United Nations Organization to take notice of “this unabated state sponsored terrorism faced by the innocent Kashmiris and use their good offices to get the long pending Kashmir dispute resolved as per the UN resolutions fulfilling the aspirations of the concerned people to stop this bloodshed”.

Jama’at also expressed its solidarity with the bereaved family of the slain lady.
