Srinagar, February 18, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership, while lashing out at a protest march by the Hindu Ekta Manch in support of a special police officer involved in rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl, has warned of an agitation if the victimization of Jammu Muslims is not stopped.
Resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a joint statement in Srinagar said, “A rally by some Hindu chauvinists led by a BJP leader under the banner of India flag in support of a rapist and murderer of innocent eight-year-old Asifa with full police protection is a glaring example of how the Indian ruling regime has fallen with regard to humanity and ethics.”
“It has also exposed the hypocritical politics of Mehbooba-led regime that in Kashmir does not tolerate any political program and imposes curfew, unleashes reign of terror against resistance camp and arrest political activists under black laws like Public Safety Act to prevent such programs but on other hand provides full police protection to an anti-human rally by fascist forces in Jammu,” the statement said.
The leaders termed the rally a slap on the face of the entire humanity. “This rally was led by BJP leader, which is actually a glaring proof of the fascist mind-set of the ruling class in India and Jammu and Kashmir,” the statement added.
The JRL said, “By this act of utmost shamelessness these fascists have clearly shown that for their religious fantasy they can stoop to any extent because honour and dignity of women and life of a human holds no value for them.”
“No religion can allow such support for a rapist and killer and the organizers, supporters, participants and collaborators of this shameful rally have actually by their disgraceful act dishonoured their own religion,” the statement said.
“Organizing and allowing a rally in support of a rapist and killer with full police protection has made clear another fact also that the so-called rulers, their police and civil administration are hands in glove with these criminals,” the JRL pointed out.
The leaders said that instead of supporting a criminal, these people should have hit roads to demand an exemplary punishment for him but the animosity against Muslims and Kashmiris has fogged their eyes and minds so much so that these people with dead conscience came out displaying Indian flag in support of the very criminal.”
The statement reads: “A so-called women chief minister who mocked Kashmiri Muslims by saying that she is ashamed of being a Muslim and a Kashmiri but is proud of Jammu people is angry at this rally not because she feels ashamed for an innocent girl’s rape and murder but for Indian flag being dishonoured. This is her real anti-human and anti-Muslim face and she is issuing these ridiculous statements to ensure her partnership with these fascist criminals.”
The leaders said, “Anyone aiming at repeating 1947 should remember that the entire Valley will rise against any such nefarious move and Kashmiri Muslims will spill their blood to save their Jammu brethren at every cost.” “If the rulers immediately don’t take steps to stop their fascist behaviour and partisanship against Jammu Muslims, Kashmiri Muslims under the banner of freedom leadership will launch a full-fledged agitation and no stone will be left unturned to ensure the safety of Jammu Muslims,” the statement said.
