Machil killings evoke condemnation
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 30: Cutting across political ideologies, parties have condemned the killing of three Nadihal youth at Machil Kupwara allegedly by the army in fake encounter.
Expressing anguish over the killings, state secretary, CPI (M) M Y Tarigami demanded that the culprits must be booked.
“Too much blood has been shed”, stop it now, Tarigami said in a statement. He said the government was on scanner and mere rhetoric was not sufficient. “What is required is identification of those responsible for such crimes and their punishment under the law.” He asked all the parties to raise their voice against such barbaric acts.
Meanwhile, terming the incident as a dastardly act, Jama’at-e-Islami J&K said the incident should be an eye-opener for the people. “Hundreds of encounters have been stage managed by the army and SOG enabling their officers and personnel to get gallantry awards and promotions. The enticement of three youth on the pretext of giving jobs and then killing them is heart-rending for the human race,” its spokesman, Advocate Zahid Ali said in a statement.
He appealed to all the organizations and intellectuals associated to come forward united with one voice and fight this ‘tyranny and state-sponsored terrorism.’
Jamiat Ahlihadith, President Moulana Showkat Ahmed Shah said despite repeated assurances from the government, the killings were going on unabated.
In a statement, he said on one hand the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh was assuring zero tolerance on human rights abuses and on the other hand, the troopers were killing innocents in fake encounters. Showkat Shah said the repeated killings gave credence to belief that India was not sincere in solving the Kashmir issue.
