Malik Remembers Asiya, Neelofar on 8th Anniversary


Srinagar—Terming the murder of Asiya and Nelofar of Shopian and concealing the truth behind that crime as ‘another example of Indian criminal attitude towards Kashmiris’, JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik Monday said that “after the rape and cold blooded murder of these innocent daughters of Kashmir, the killers were provided the opportunity to escape the grip of the law.

“Unless the perpetrators of that crime are brought to book, the chastity and dignity of women folk in Kashmir is at risk,” Malik said in a statement on their 8th death anniversary.

Terming Shopian incident as “most inhuman and barbaric act”, JKLF chairman said that “the episode is heart wrenching tragedy. Dignified nations while pursuing their struggle never tolerate the disrespect of their mothers and sisters and never forget these sacrifices. It is obligatory to recall and remember these tragedies and sacrifices till those involved in such cases are exposed and punished.”

Malik said that the ‘horrible desire’ of Indian army chief to kill every Kashmiri shows criminal mindset of Indian rulers and their forces.

While reacting to the recent statement of Indian army chief asserting that he wishes Kashmiri protesters used arms instead of stones so that his forces could kill them all freely, Malik said that no one should be surprised on this statement as India is slowly unveiling itself as ‘a fascist state’ where new kinds of Hitler and Mussolini are taking birth under the garb of the biggest democracy.

“Height of the shamelessness is such that turning an unarmed civilian as human shield man is termed as bravery and innovation and oppression against unarmed Kashmiris is being justified by terming situation as an ugly war,” he said.
