GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 16: Expressing outrage over the killing of 55- year old government employee Ghulam Nabi Mir of Pampore by the forces, the chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik on Saturday termed it the worst kind of “state terrorism.”
Mir was severely beaten by the force personnel on October 7, at Pampore in south Kashmir, injuring him grievously. He succumbed to his injuries on Friday at SKIMS, Soura, here. He is survived by wife and five children including four daughters.
Addressing a condolence meeting at his residence Mir, Malik said, “Mir was nor a militant neither a stone thrower. He was ruthlessly beaten to death by the armed forces? His martyrdom has abundantly proved that the armed forces in Kashmir are out to kill anyone as they have the licence to do it. What should we term the killing of an inoffensive civilian? Isn’t it the worst kind of state terrorism? ”
Malik paid glowing tributes to Mir and expressed solidarity with his family.
Meanwhile, a JKLF spokesman said that Malik also expressed deep sorrow over the demise of the mother of Muhammad Sami and Muhammad Younis of Batamaloo. He prayed for the deceased and sympathized with the bereaved family.
Malik has also expressed deep sorrow over the death of a prominent trader Peer Muhammad Mushtaq of Patukah, Sopur, in a road mishap, he added.
