HCBA members stage protest
UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Srinagar, June 24: Members of the High Court Bar Association (HCBA), Thursday, staged a demonstration against the growing human rights violations in the state.
Carryings placards and banners, lawyers led by the HCBA president Mian Abdul Qayoom and general secretary Ghulam Nabi Shaheen marched through the city centre and staged a sit-in later.
“Omar Abdullah is responsible for the killing of teenagers in the state. During his tenure innocent teenagers Inayat, Zahid Farooq, Wamiq Farooq, Tufail Ahmed Matto, Rafiq Ahmed Bangroo, Javaid Ahmed Malla and others have been killed by forces and police .Our daughters Nelofar and Asiya were raped and murdered in Shopian last year and CBI was brought up to shield the killers. All this happened in Omar Abdullah’s tenure and he should step down,” Qayoom said, while addressing the lawyers.
Blaming mainstream politicians for the sufferings of Kashmiris, he said that Kashmiris should get rid of Omar Abdullah, Farooq Abdullah, Mufti Sayed, Mehbooba Mufti and Saifuddin Soz, who “cover-up the atrocities committed by the forces.”
On Indo –Pak talks, the HCBA president said, “The bilateral talks between two countries are bound to fail and history stands testimony to it.”
He said that hanging of Afzal Guru, who was sentenced to death in Parliament attack case, would have serious ramifications.
He condemned the slapping of PSA on veteran pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and foiling All party meet that had been called by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
